AARON ANDERSON is a triple A…and besides that, he’s the new Topical writer producer for Huntsville’s WAFF, NBC in the Rocket City. With his super background in the newsroom, which includes producing the WAFF morning show as well as special projects, plus his web production experience, he’s a natural for promotion and creative services. And he knows the market – he’s from Huntsville. Would that make him a Huntsvillian…Huntsviller…? Will have to ask CSD MARK STRAND for insight on that. Meanwhile, Well Dunne! Aaron.

Qualifications: 5+ years non-linear editing experience, preferably on an Avid platform.  Knowledge of Adobe products software with solid motion design skills are a plus, as is experience in the Social space.

This winter has been particularly difficult. In late February, BRIAN LUSK passed away suddenly. Brian was a great friend as well as the social media manager for Southwest Airlines – a pioneer in social media. Southwest gave him the room to do a fabulous job, and their social presence is considered one of the best in the country. Of course, he learned marketing at SMU.

Today I found out a former promotions pro passed away Monday evening in San Antonio. CHERYL PORTER was at KSAT, ABC in San Antonio through several owners and ended up running the department. She was organized, intelligent and taught those around her the things that college fails to impart. Working with her was a real pleasure. She left TV to work where her heart was happy – a church. She will be missed.

‘The Hat’ is back. If you got that email and work at CBS’ KOVR in Sacramento,  then you know it’s the way the station welcomed back PAUL KRAMER, now Promotion Manager under CSD DON SMITH. Paul wrote and produced at KOVR before heading across town to be Creative Services Production Manager at FOX affil KTXL.  The San Francisco State University grad also worked at American Zoetrope – yep the Coppola and Lucas film studio. What did he do there in his seven years?  He did just about everything. And how did he get the moniker ‘The Hat’? By wearing the same one. Easy question.  A big Well Dunne to you Paul. 

Abilene, Texas is just down the Interstate from Sweetwater, home of the big rattlesnake roundup. Yeah, not on the Bucket List, but interesting nonetheless.  When the brave and bold KAREN YARBROUGH (KTAB’s Creative leader) showed up at said event, just this last Friday, she showed more chutzpah than anyone else I know in TV when she skinned a rattlesnake…yes, she really skilled a rattlesnake. Perhaps a belt or the start of a great purse? Amazingly Well Dunne! Karen.
