Heading to the upstate of South Carolina is DEANNE BIVINS, who has taken the Marketing Manager slot at WSPA WSPA/WYCW/Your Carolina and Scene on 7, the Media General-owned CBS/CW affil and web sites in the Greenville-Spartanburg-Asheville market. One of the items in her suitcase is a bright shiny new degree from Full Sail. Since she left WBRC in Birmingham, she’s been cracking the books, or in this case cracking the computer, to earn a Masters of Science Certificate in Internet Marketing. Full Sail is an amazing school in Winter Park, FL who counts among their alums my favorite editor of all time, GREG VERMETTE. Ms. Deanne is wasting no time – she starts this Monday, April 25. A Georgia girl by birth, Ms. Bivins has also spun promo magic at KTVT in DFW as well as KSTP in Minneapolis-St. Paul. Greenville is home to the BMW plant here in the states, and one of her new goals it to find the BMW outlet store. Yeah, she’s a shopper as well as creative. Well Dunne! Deanne.

Think About This: “So I say to you: Ask, and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; everyone who searches finds; everyone who knocks will have the door opened.” ~ Luke 11:9-10
