It all started in Lubbock. Yep, in the near-Panhandle of Texas where LARA RICHARDSON had her first TV job. She coordinated Promos for KJTV and then jumped to USA Broadcasting in Miami where she added Writing and Producing to her repertoire before getting bumped to Director On-Air Promos. From there it was on to NYC to be Senior Writer Producer for Oxygen before catching on with Discovery where Ms. Lara held a series of well-earned titles like Supervising Producer for TLC, Creative Director of History Channel and VP Creative TLC.   In 2012 she was tabbed Senior VP of Marketing for Discovery out of their LA offices then just recently her title was again promoted to Group EVP Marketing Discovery, Animal Planet and Science Channel. VERY nice Lara. She graduated from high school in Puerto Rico and Washington State University. A kind hearted soul, she volunteered for the Red Cross after Katrina, and, in true creative style, turned that experience into a documentary. Well Dunne! Lara.

Job Alert – Senior News Brand Producer WCPQ Seattle (Work with SYD RUBIN!!!)

Now, let’s face it…finding a place where the ND doesn’t believe they are marketing pros…where the GM understands the marketing process and you don’t have to convince them it’s important…where your direct boss is one of the best, nicest and smartest ladies in the business (and she cooks too!) … in a big market, well, that’s pretty rare. And that’s what this job is. So my little puppets…let’s find the right person!

TLC has called one of their own back into the fold. JENNIFER SARLIN is back at Discovery as Sr. VP Marketing for TLC after a five year stint doing her own thing as Benzo Creative. Jennifer was Director Advertising and Promotion at TLC before going off on her own. She has a news producer background and worked for Conus and WBAL in Baltimore. Other stops along the way for the NYU Masters lady include Exec Producer roles for Big Shot Productions and Pixel Workshop (cute name). Well Dunne! Jennifer.


Promo pros seem to really love cycling. One such example is WRAL’s creative leader, SHELLY LESLIE, who is using her bike to raise money to fight cancer. Excellent. She rode in honor of my brother last year and will do so again this year. If any of you have ever lost someone due to cancer, you might want to consider donating to Shelly’s ride. Better hurry…the deadline is Friday. To make it easy, just click – and then be generous.
