LA’s The Hit House has two new talents to add to their musical offerings. DANNY EXUM has been named Director, Music Supervision and Business Development and DAN DIAZbecomes In-House Composer. Exum is a rock star when it comes to music for film trailers. He’s a former DJ who loves the tunes for sure. Diaz is noted for trailer music, network marketing music and even game promotion. Yeah, you’ve heard their work…think Iron Man 3, Call of Duty Ghost Protocol…you know, those uber cool ones. Very impressive. No doubt SALLY HOUSE, EP a Hit House is thrilled by the two Dans. Well Dunne!

What a great pairing. Along the lines of Martin and Lewis…cheese and crackers…bacon and eggs. Music man STEPHEN ARNOLD and creative guru GORDON SMITH are combining all that talent into a one-stop creative talent shop. Well Dunne! boys. 


Got several great folks heading this way and that, but am awaiting the greenlight from those who greenlight. And let’s face it, this winter has been so harsh just about everywhere you look, it amazes that ya’ll keep from dropping the ball. Give yourself a warm Well Dunne!

Heading to the city that winter has slammed pretty hard this year…oh, that should be made clearer, since so many places qualify. Heading to Chicago is STEVE DONALD who will be taking the VP of Creative Services slot for WFLD, Fox’s station. It will be quite a change, since Steve is currently VP of Marketing and Creative Services for Sunbeam TV’s WSVN out of Miami. As in sunny south Florida Miami – where the temperature at the time of me writing this is …. 80. In Chicago at the time of this writing, it is 26 and snowing. Steve isn’t a stranger to winter…he spent a lot of time in Boston overseeing Sunbeam’s station there, so he probably has the proper clothing. A big warm Well Dunne! Steve.

Sometimes, one can find themselves in a familiar spot, but realize they have grown from the time they left until the time they returned. When JIM HART looks back at the adventures he’s had since he left being CSD at Scripps’ KNXV in Phoenix, he’ll have a lot to ponder. Today (Monday) marks his return to the ABC affil as head of marketing, and he has put a lot of mileage on his life’s odometer. He’s been consulting the marketing efforts of one of Scripps’ syndicated shows and launched it. That alone would be enough, but no…Jim went to exploring in Europe where he walked The Camino in Spain. If you don’t know what that is, look it up and you’ll agree it’s an amazing journey on many levels. So glad to see Jim back in the Valley of the Sun and happy. Well Dunne! Mr. Hart.


Remember when watching the Super Bowl was a one-screen event and you had to wait to see not only who won the game but wait to view all the cool adverts in it? Today’s multi-screen world has given a lot of pre-play to the $4 million ads as well as all kinds of buzz. More bang for the buck. In pre-game coverage, it seems that touching the heart spots are back – perhaps one will be akin to the famous Mean Joe Green spot that always lands in the Top Commerials of All Time list.


It’s been a tough week for a lot of you…the gates to the  Rainbow Bridge section of heaven have swung open. Sadly, CHARLIE VAN DYKE, ANDREA LAIGN, and Well Dunne’s MIKE BRATTON have all lost their dogs. Sending all of you condolences.

Well, at least you weren’t in Atlanta’s traffic nightmare. That’s something to be very thankful for, indeed. LARRY WATZMAN, Director of Marketing and Creative Services at Gannett’s WXIA in the Big A hunkered down for the night on an air mattress, which is a couple of hundred steps above freezing in your car sans salle de bain. 


Meanwhile, to the west, in Des Moines, IA, more used to ice, snow and resultant traffic, comes word that PETER ZEMANSKY is now the #2 man at Hearst’s KCCI. CSD NICK ALLARD is thrilled with him and promoted him from a writing and producing slot. Peter a Drake grad who’s interned at NBC News in DC as well as been a print reporter. Well Dunne! Peter.


Also at KCCI, taking the writer producer slot Peter left vacant is new-to-the-biz MARK PETERSON. Mark is an Iowa State U grad and an Iowa native. Love to see the start of a creative career. Well Dunne! Mr. P.

Raleigh’s WRAL has not one but two people who are smiling more broadly than usual. First, DON  URSICH is moving into the Promotion Writer/Producer slot that CSD SHELLY LESLIE has had open while she searched for the perfect team member. Don was nearly under her nose…he was at sister station Fox 50 in The Triangle. Don started his career as a director in Ohio, and made the transition to promotion at Raleigh’s CW22. He joined FOX 50 the first time back in 2009, then worked at CBC’s Charlotte stations as producer and promotion manager, then came back to FOX last year. 


But wait – there’s more. JUSTIN ARNER is now handling Topicals at WRAL. He’s been writing and producing (and winning awards for his efforts) so now his work will get prime time exposure. Well Dunne! to both Don and Justin.

Kicking 2014 off late, but persevering nonetheless. There are wonderful things afoot and smiles all around. For instance, JORDANA HOUCHINS has a fabulous new job – she’s Creative Director for the Queen Latifah Show. Queen not only had a fashion star outfit on the Peoples Choice Awards the other night, but her new talk show was voted favorite and she took home an Award. Jordana will no doubt have a blast marketing, having learned her stuff at KABC, KTLA and FOX in Charlotte. The University of Washington grad certainly knows how to make a new year fresh and exciting. Well Dunne! Jordana.

Closing the book on a long and illustrious career in TV marketing is ANNE ATKINS, who is retiring from her slot as VP of Marketing for the Raycom ownership group. She’s a classy, intelligent and talented woman who no doubt will be missed, and who deserves all the best. May you enjoy every day, Anne.

While in SD, he was heading up the marketing efforts for CBS affil KFMB. He has an remarkable background including VP Marketing and Creative at Tribune’s KTLA in LA (super weather) and VP Station Manager KPIX CBS in San Francisco. For 15 years, Steve was the Director of Marketing for Cox’s KTVU in the Bay Area…and he’s now ‘going home’ to take the reigns again for Fox SF. Yep, one lucky guy and one lucky station. Well Dunne!

Have you ever been to San Antonio during the holiday season? It’s not the Currier & Ives winter scene so many of us associate with Christmas, but it’s the most lovely blend of historic and religious Mexican and Texan traditions. Their Riverwalk is all gorgeous lights and the La Posada reenactment in the King William district is moving and beautiful. All said to lay the groundwork for TERRY MCFARLANE’s return to Texas. Terry is headed to SA to be Creative Services Director for Sinclair San Antonio, which means NBC affil WOAI-TV, FOX affiliate KABB and CW affil KMYS. He’ll be taking leave of Palm Beach (just as The Season gets underway!) on this his second time as a Texan – he was CSD in Dallas-Ft. Worth at KTVT/CBS and KXAS/NBC. Other promo stops along the way for Terry include WISN Milwaukee, KLAS in Vegas and KTVX in Salt Lake City. Well Dunne! Terry. 


Meanwhile, AZALIA HOELTING is starting up her own biz. She was CSD at KABB/KMYS and has a terrific background in marketing and special events honed at such locales as Dallas and Oklahoma City. So it makes perfect sense for her to get a special events concern going in a tourist and convention town! Yes, she’ll keep in touch with us. Can’t wait to hear great things. Well Dunne! Azaila.

Think About This:  “"How many times have we called on God and then ignored the opportunities he sent? Maybe we didn’t recognize them because they didn’t take the form we expected. Spiritual surrender requires faith, but it also requires paying attention to opportunities and taking action. We need to look to God for guidance, to keep us on the right course, but we can’t expect God to kick-start us every morning and deliver breakfast in bed."  ~ Kathy Cordova
