August…the month when nature practically demands we slow down. Perfect for getting away, reading, painting, traveling – doing what recharges that inner spark. This August finds some of you in Africa, China and taking children and grandchildren to favorite places. It finds a lot of you dropping children off at colleges and experiencing sadness and joy and worry and nostalgia all at once. This August, as we watch the shadows shift ever so slightly, and the business we know change at the speed of light, let’s focus on the things that make us happy.
Art makes me happy and there’s no place like New Mexico where art is such a part of every moment. Our news today comes from KOAT in Albuquerque, where the incomparable CSD DEILIA RAY WILLIAMS has promoted MATT MONTOYA to be her new Assistant Creative Services Director. Matt’s a graphic artist, you see, which means the already great-looking KOAT marketing will have an even more exciting gleam to it. The New Mexico State grad got his start in TV at Vegas’ KLAS where he wrote, produced and edited. After being Senior Editor at Sun Media Productions he joined the Hearst ABC as Graphic Designer. Sounds like he’s in the right place with the right talent. Well Dunne! Matt.

Think About This: “I have faith in the truth, in its ability to find us…. If the truth often seems elusive when we seek it directly, perhaps it is some consolation that it also relentlessly reveals itself to us in our lives, our dreams, and the stories we tell one another.” ~ Oriah Mountain Dreamer
One of my favorite Creatives has news to share. And it’s muy feliz news. DEILIA RAY WILLIAMS, who loves shoes and is, in essence, a ‘shoe sister’, is the new Creative Services Director of KOAT, the Hearst ABC in Albuquerque. KOAT and shoes…a fashion move of sorts. She’ll be decamping her California job at Hearst’s ABC affil KSBW in the Cali Central coast, specifically Salinas/Santa Cruz/Monterrey where she headed creative services. A southern lady by birth, manners and recipes, Miss Deilia has worked as Assistant CSD at WLKY in Louisville as well as learning the promo ropes at WHNS in Greenville SC where she wore the producer and Sr. Producer hats. She’ll be in the Land of Enchantment by the end of September and her whole family is going to greet October in their new city. Best part of Fall will be the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, scheduled to float off Oct 4. The entire Williams clan will never see anything like it again and it’s the best way to welcome them to NM. Well Dunne! Deilia!

Saying the right thing every time. You can do it. Love this article. You might too.
A not so happy article about social media and brands.
Think About This: “You will always be too much of something for someone: too bit, too loud, too soft, too edgy. If you round out your edges, you lose your edge. Apologize for mistakes. Apologize for unintentionally hurting someone – profusely. But don’t apologize for being who you are.” ~ Danielle LaPorte
