What better place to get the Christmas spirit than Alaska, where JOHN RICE’s neighbor has a pet reindeer. Yes, in Anchorage. John, who is heading up the Denali Media properties marketing and such, even had a close encounter with a 9 foot moose in his driveway. The moose was chill, in more ways than one, and took a nap nearby. For those Christmas-holics amongst us, Anchorage should be on your list. Christmas Eve weather forecast is for snow. Doesn’t that sound lovely! Well Dunne! John and Happy Christmas.
Definitely need more hours in the day. All in favor? Let’s take a moment from logs, last minute family matters, grocery emergency runs and traffic to think about the amazing good your operations can bring about. Take, for instance, CHRIS and CARLA SLOAN of 2C Media. There isn’t anybody who puts their heart into helping like these two and their whole company. They have made the children of Puerto Rico happy after a horrible hurricane. Chris and Carla et all have tirelessly raised funds, wrangled airlines and even delivered presents themselves – all to make a difference. It’s what getting up in the morning is all about. To say Well Dunne! is just not enough.
Read the beautifully written obituary for LEE MINARD. There will be a celebration of his life in the spring. He is more than missed.

How’s this for a way to start a new year: watching fireworks explode over snow-covered mountaintops – and in the background, shining through, the Northern Lights. Yeah – one of those perfect life moments stored in the permanent memory section of your soul. This is how JOHN RICE started 2016. John is doing what most of us say we want to do – he’s changing it up and seeing what happens. Repotting himself is the phrase that comes to mind. In this case, changing it up means a move to Anchorage, Alaska from Charlotte, NC. It’s 4,335 miles according to Google maps, and if you would want to drive it (not in winter) the trip would be the basis of a documentary. John is the new Director of Marketing for Denali Media, the company that owns and runs several stations in the largest state. In his new role, he’ll be visiting and exploring The Last Frontier, including Sitka, recently named one of the prettiest small towns by Travel and Leisure. John’s main office is at KTVA, CBS, and from the sound of things, the place is gorgeous – all the latest equipment and even an award-winning Devlin Design news set. Alaska is an exciting difference for Mr. Rice, who’s a Texas boy with a degree from UT Austin. He’s done production (including documentaries) and headed up marketing efforts since he got that diploma. Call letters on his resume include KHOU in Houston, WCNC and WBTV in Charlotte. Join me in celebrating a very exciting chapter in John’s life adventure. Well Dunne! Mr. Rice.
