They’re beefing up the WUSA creative team in the nation’s capital…and the ace in today’s sights is DYLAN WILBUR, newly tapped but on the job Art Director. He’s transitioning from CBS in Minnesota where he was AD under CSD CASEY KESPOHL and Promo Director SCOTT WOOLRIDGE (two heavy talents). The move to DC will reunite Dylan with SKYE BEITLER, newly named Creative Director; the two previously worked together at KTVU in Oakland. Dylan has also worked in Milwaukee for both Hearst and Weigel as well as in Vegas for Journal (now Scripps). Sounds like it’s a gathering of some exciting work in progress….Well Dunne! Dylan!
The gene pool…it’s an amazing fabrication. The way talents and interests and physical features can be passed down…wow. One such example is in Kansas City, where marketing pro DAMON BRYANT has a son who is wildly musical. Give him a listen..buy the music. Love putting the spotlight on new emerging talent – especially ‘in the TV family’ kind. Well Dunne! proud dad and BLAIR BRYANT.

Think About This: “There will be very painful moments in your life that will change your entire world in a matter of minutes. These moments will change you. Let them make you stronger, smarter, and kinder. But don’t you go and become someone that you’re not. Cry. Scream if you have to. Then straighten out that crown and keep moving.” ~ Erin van Vuren
When one pivots and tries new things, great things happen. And with that in mind, let’s hear it for DAMON BRYANT, late of the VP CSD slot at Tribune’s FOX affil in Kansas City, WDAF who is now the VP GM and Director of Biz Development for Devlin Design Group. Yep, the set folks. Damon is a grad of UMKC and kicked off his TV marketing career at CBS in KC where he was On-Air Promo Manager. He transitioned with the same title to WTMJ in Miami then took the CSD slot at WXYZ in Detroit. He then took on Market #3 Chicago as Director of Advertising and Promotion at WBBM/CBS and from there went to VP of Creative Services for Fox Television Stations. He’ll be a real asset for Devlin and you should take his call when he dials you. Well Dunne! Damon!
Did you know that curling is a high school sport in some parts of the country? I just found out and I want to thank former CSD now GM CURTIS MILES for the insight. Very cool, in more ways than one.
Think About This: “I want to live simply. I want to sit by the window when it rains and read books I’ll never be tested on. I want to paint because I want to, not because I’ve got something to prove. I want to listen to my body, fall asleep when the moon is high and wake up slowly, with no place to rush off to. I want not to be governed by money or clocks or any of the artificial restraints that humanity imposes on itself. I just want to be – boundless and infinite.” ~ Word Porn
As the first candle was lit on menorahs across the world last evening, it marks the perfect time for all of us to take a moment to think about miracles. They come in all sizes and forms, sometimes coming around as expected and sometimes quite the opposite. But they do happen. You have to keep your heart open and expect them. So no matter what challenges are clouding your life, the lighted candle should remind you that all will be well.
Former promo pro TODD BALLANTYNE, who left the TV biz after heading up creative at KYW in Philly as well as Comcast’s CN8 and Promo Manager at NBC’s WCAU in the City of Brotherly Love, experienced a miracle this weekend. He debuted a new creation in the aforementioned Philadelphia – Papa Todd has a baby daughter! Do we need to say the Ballantyne family couldn’t be happier? Well Dunne!
On the opposite side of the country, out Sacramento way, FOX 50 (calls KTXL) On-Air Promo Manager NATE DARLING is off the market and engaged. The holidays always bring a rash of engagements.
JIM WINDSOR needs your healing thoughts….going to have some surgery and it’s always good to have as many folks in your corner pulling for you as you can. Jim’s currently doing promo at FOX in Chicago, WFLD, and has been spinning marketing magic in Milwaukee, Palm Beach and Akron. I’ll keep you posted on his progress…you keep him in your thoughts. And don’t hesitate to Facebook him!
Traveling for the holiday (or just traveling)? These are seven VERY informative and great ideas on how to make the travel hassle better. No really, these are super ideas.
Think About This: : “A dream written down with a date becomes a goal. A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan. A plan backed by action makes your dreams come true.” ~ Greg S. Reid (thanks DAMON BRYANT, WDAF KC)
