Beautiful Downtown Burbank…any of you remember or have seen the Johnny Carson running gag about NBC’s location? Johnny would be amazed at how Burbank has come around.

What? A company that wants their employees to be happy? Is this on the level?Google it.
Think About This: “When I was 5 years old, my mother told me happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment. I told them they didn’t understand life.” ~ John Lennon

Think About This: "People do not fight because they are wicked… War is waged primarily for the sake of what is central…bread. Help the needy. Feed the starving. Assuage the painof those who are hungry….It is the means of preventing warand securing the great blessing of peace." ~ Rabbi Benjamin Blech
Family first…it’s one of the most cited reason for job changes. With the real estate market rather iffy, with children wanting to stay in their classes, with elderly parents needing more and more help, family reasons are behind more and more job switches. Such is the case with CHUCK SPRUILL who is leaving Belo’s WVEC in the Norfolk VA market and joining WPDE down in the Florence – Myrtle Beach, SC market. Yep, his family is there and he’s been seeing them only on weekends. Not to mention taking that 300 mile trip on weekends. No fun. Now Mr. Chuck is going to be a much happier guy. And he deserves it. He does great creative work, too. Win-win. Well Dunne! Chuck.
Taking Chuck’s place at WVEC is ED TUDOR, who has experience running creative departments and has been at WVEC for the last year or so. Ed’s one of the good guys and he’ll no doubt take everything up a notch in Norfolk. Well Dunne! Ed.
Are you peanut butter or are you jelly? Not only do great sandwiches require the right balance of both, but so do creative projects. Great article on finding more time for creativity, and sandwiches…
Think About This: “A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures for anything” ~ Irish proverb
Some folks get all the luck. Like getting to live and work in Oceanside markets. Such is the case with ED TUDOR, who is a Jacksonville, FL guy and was part of WJXT and WTLV/WJXX along the first coast. Then he made stops at Belo’s KHOU in Houston (on the Gulf) and WWSB in beloved Sarasota, FL. America’s Monaco, imo. I didn’t mention the Little Rock Promo Manager gig, since their water is bottled. Now Mr. Ed is doing promo magic at WVEC in Norfolk. WVEC’s building sits right on the water, so Mr. Tudor’s streak of being waterside is not only unbroken, but amazing. Great news, Ed…Well Dunne! And great news for CSD CHUCK SPRUILL.
Speaking of WVEC, job alert! They need yet another super promo pro writer producer. Super shop. Behave accordingly.
Happy Birthday, one day late, to Well Dunne! Talent’s JOE CALI. Hated to miss that celebration. Also a belated birthday to the one and only SHORTY BACON.
