Every now and then, you stumble across something you never knew about a person/friend you felt you knew well. Happened with Well Dunne! Talent’s NICK SANAMBRIA. (His voice is just marvelous!) His father and uncle were amazing inventors who specialized in the technology that made TV possible. He’s promised to write about it later. When his dad was in WW2, one of the projects he did was set up communications for the Allies in D-Day. Working from England, he was assigned a billeted living quarters and a driver. The driver turned out to be QUEEN ELIZABETH, who at the time was Princess Elizabeth. Wow…amazing. Should I say Well Dunne! Your Royal Highness? Not appropriate, actually.

Moving one’s career ahead is such an exciting endeavour. Yes, everyone everyday moves their career along, taking steps both big and small just by keeping the lights on. Certain forward progress is noted with new cities, new duties, new titles. One young lady moving ahead is now the Assistant Creative Services Director for CSD PAUL MONTGOMERY at Scripps’ ABC affil WRTV in Indianapolis. LINDSAY BLEDSOE is the lady in question and she’s making the move from Indy’s WXIN where she handled topicals. Ms. Lindsay has worked doing promos at WTMJ in Milwaukee and is an Indiana girl, born there and holding a sheepskin from Valpariso U. No doubt we’ll be seeing great things from her. She started Monday and from the sounds of it, will be working days not nights. Well Dunne! Lindsay.

Living on Tulsa time isn’t just a song sung by Don Williams…it’s what RACHEL PAPP is going to be doing once she settles into the job of Creative Services Director at Scripps’ NBC affiliate KJRH located in the aforementioned T-Town.  It’s her first turn at heading up creative efforts and she’s learned from hands-on experience. Her last slot was at Scripps’ sister station WPTV, NBC in West Palm Beach, FL where she was Sr. Promo Writer Producer having started as writer producer for CSD JAMES MCKAY. Ms. Rachel also worked at Post-Newsweek’s CBS affil WKMG in Orlando where she interned and then took a seat as Senior Sales Assistant. Rachel is going to be in great hands in Tulsa, where her GM is former promo pro DONNA WILSON. Well Dunne! Rachel. (PS – Rachel’s new job broke the nearly all-male streak we had going in March)


Fresh from a panel a SXSW comes more excitement from DAN SILVER who has been tapped VP of Creative for Riptide Music Group out of Culver City.

KDVR will also welcome STEPHEN RYLE as their new commercial producer. Mr. R is coming from Raycom’s CBS affil WTOC in historic Savannah, GA.

Let’s play a “where is he going” game. He ‘he’ in question is TONY REED, just now departing his slot as Promotion Manager at Hearst’s NBC affil in Orlando, WESH. The moving van comes early next week and he’ll be taking the Marketing Director position at…this is where we play the game. It’s a Midwest market. It’s larger than a bread box and largerer than Nielsen’s #42 market. It’s a FOX affiliate. It’s owned by a wonderful ownership group. The city where he’s going has the nickname Porkopolis (I am not making that up). The city in question does odd things with chile but has the best ice cream in the country (based on several foodie recommendations). Anybody guess  Cincinatti? Yes, Tony is going to Cincinnati where he’ll be wrangling the marketing for Raycom’s WXIX come April 10. Tony is a super guy…a passionate animal lover as well as a vegan, he has worked with Hearst in Albuquerque at KOAT (where he was CSD) and in Portland Maine for WGME and WMTW. Best thing is his sheepskin from University of Missouri in Columbia in Journalism. MissouRAH! Well Dunne! Tony.

This country seems to define itself by what body of water is nearest. The Atlantic means the east coast….the Gulf refers to the southern states which get to have more shrimp than the rest of us…the Mississippi divides us in half…and the Pacific calls out to come across the vast empty west and watch sunsets in the land of opportunity. Heading from the banks of the Mississippi (metaphorically speaking) to the golden west is JOEL FLOWERS, who is embarking on a trek from Sikeston, MO to Thousand Palms, CA, where Mr. Flowers will be hitting the world of TV marketing as a writer producer for CSD KENT KAY at KESQ. The University of Tennessee at Martin grad has been polishing his marketing craft working in radio, where deadlines and marketing messages are the same as TV. In his new job, Joel will be reunited with his old radio on-air co-host, SALLY SAPUTO; the two of them were a hot item and from the sound of things, they will continue to be for News-Press & Gazette Co’s operations. Well Dunne! and safe travels Joel. Don’t fall over when you see the price of petrol in Needles.  


Congrats and Well Dunne! to WKYC’s MICKI BYRNES with her new title VP/Station Manager at  Gannett-owned NBC affil..  She’s a creative – been a marketing pro in Boston, Atlanta and San Francisco as well as most recently VP of Advertising and Promotion in Cleveland.  Always loved her work and working with her on the NBC Promo Board. She also did a campaign that still ranks as one of my favorites ever.

Yes, it was under his watch that we colonists rather acted up and formed our own country. Anyway, Charlotte is home to the Cox ABC affil WSOC, which is the home of RON DEJOSEPH, the newest member of the TV Promotion Manager club. Starting at ESPN where he edited, he made the switch to WSOC as an editor and then motion graphics guy…working his talent into super spots as producer. Now he’s booted to Promo Manager and he really knows his stuff. Well Dunne! Ron.

One of the very talented creatives out there is now a Promotion Manager! Yes, he got the new title when we were all either shoveling snow or worrying about lack of rain (how you identify will label you a Midwest/East Coast person or a West Coast person respectively). Up at WXYZ in Detroit, at the Scripp-owned ABC affil, AARON LIVERSEDGE has been a stand-out writer producer for CSD DAVE BAUMANN. All Aaron’s stuff is amazing. No doubt hard work has paid off with that new business card. A big Well Dunne! to Aaron.

Is there a prettier city in the spring than Atlanta? OK, Paris, but I’m talking domestic. Yes, Atlanta and their peachtrees in full bloom win the eyes and hearts of anyone who loves gorgeous. The timing of Atlanta in the spring is going to work out perfectly for DAVID TALLARICO. David is the new Promotion Manager at CBS’ WGCL, or as they brand themselves CBS46 and Peachtree TV (see, Peachtree is big business there). After not just one but two periods at WJAC, the Johnstown PA Sinclair NBC (once as producer and then again as CSD), David will bid adieu to Pennsylvania. He’s a PA boy with a degree from University of Pittsburgh and time as a producer at WPXI in The ‘Burgh. . Best of luck with your new job, David, and you’ll love working with your boss JEFF HOLUB. Well Dunne!

Talent’s MELANIE HAYNES isn’t just fab behind the mic (and she is – click her name and give her a listen) but you’ll have the opportunity to see how she shines in front of the cameras as well. She’s just finished shooting an episode of SALEM, a new series for WGN.  Details on when it airs will be made yours in advance so you can set your iCal reminder. Well Dunne! Melanie!

Love the Brits (and Irish, Scots and Welsh) when they use the word ‘brilliant’. It always makes the description more alive and exciting. So when WHNT’s CSD BECKY SHORES described her new producer/shooter/editor in such a term, I knew it was someone to keep one’s eye upon. Welcome to the world of entertainment marketing SAM LOTT. Ms. Becky found him in her own newsroom where the University of North Alabama grad was doing special projects. He also directed, filmed and edited a music video for indie group The Grenadines – Dejelo Solo. Looking to see what excitement Sam cooks up at the Huntsville CBS affiliate. Well Dunne! Sam.

No, I mean Carrie KNOWS Chicago and as much as she know Chicago, she knows how to market even more. Whew…sounds hyperbolic, but it’s just a fact. Carrie is heading up a new entity which will draw on her days as creative at WGN and FOX up in The Windy City. New entity is tagged Creative Forces. In her own words, “Creative Forces is a group of international award-winning visual storytellers who specialize in creating break-through brand strategies that deliver high-profile and extremely profitable market positions.” How cool is that! So, all you corporate, network and cable kids…you need to mentally bookmark Carrie’s endeavor and, ahem….use her! Well Dunne! Carrie.

Such was the case when WMAR’s CSD ALEX SHAW went searching for a new creative services writer producer, an item getting to be as scarce as unicorns. Baltimore’s ABC affiliate now has found such a creative and Mr. Shaw is thrilled to tell us about ADAM MIZRAHI, who was freelancing for Alex back in November and is now a bonafide part of the creative team. Great to hear. Adam is a U of Maryland College Park grad who loves film and has worked at Percepto Studios in Charm City, as well as handled freelance projects. Sounds like this is going to be a very good pairing. Well Dunne! Adam!

I’ve known MARSHALL HITES for quite some time, and he’s absolutely super. Yes, his name does sound like a Cleveland suburb (a joke that he doesn’t always find as funny as I do) yet he’s absolutely an A-1 guy in every sense of the word. Just yesterday he got a wonderful push up the ladder with Tribune, who named him SVP, Marketing and Creative Services. That title means he’ll be overseeing all 42 of Trib’s stations. Best yet, he gets to stay in LA, which I know makes his wife and son very happy. Mr. H has worked at WKJS in Jacksonville, WFLA in Tampa, KCAL/KCBS in LA and has been helming KTLA’s marketing since 2011. And to think it all started in his hometown of Augusta, GA. A big hug goes along with this Well Dunne! Marshall.

Melissa is the VP of Creative and Marketing at the New York flagship and she is delighted to promote MICKEY ADOLPH into the job…he’s earned it.  She and Mickey have not only worked together at KNBC, where he was writing and producing before his promotion, but at KGO and KNTV, both the ABC and NBC operations in San Francisco. Mickey is a California guy who has made the transition to NYC beautifully (and no doubt with a great coat, muffler and gloves). A very big Well Dunne! Mickey.
