Why does WFTS CSD (actually Director of Multimedia Marketing) DENNIS ELSBURY have a rare opening at his shop down in Tampa? Because he’s losing a great guy to market #3. Heading north to the Windy City is JIM HILL, who will be checking in at FOX there, WFLD. Jim has been Senior Writer Producer for the marketing efforts of the Scripps ABC. Jim is going to be ‘home’ in Chicago and nearer family. Yeah, that’s always the best. The SIU-Carbondale grad hones his marketing chops at WTWO in Terre Haute as well as WTMJ in Milwaukee. I wonder if he’s a Cubs or Sox fan….we’ll find out. Big Well Dunne! Jim.

Think About This: “When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you do not blame the lettuce. You look for reasons it is not doing well. It may need fertilizer, or more water, or less sun. You never blame the lettuce. Yet, it we have problems with our friends or family, we blame the other person. But if we know how to take care of them, they will grow well, like the lettuce. Blaming has no positive at all, nor does trying to persuade using reason and argument. That is my experience. No blame, no reasoning, no argument, just understanding. If you understand, an dyou show that you understand, you can love, and the situation will change.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

KRISTA MOATS is the new marketing and creative producer for FOX in Chicago. I know she’s going to put that at the top of her Thankful list this holiday. Ms Krista loves this biz and hitting market #3 is pretty exciting. She’s making the transition from South Bend IN where she was producing for Sinclair’s WSBT. No stranger to the FOX family, Krista worked for WUPW in Toledo at one time before she worked at Scripps’ WRTV in Indianapolis. What a perfect time of year to be in the Windy City. Well Dunne! Krista!

It’s the perfect…no the most perfect… time to be in New York City. Christmas tree going up at 30 Rock, ice skating, window shopping, more lights than ever. When KEITH MORAN shared that he was the new writer producer for VP MISSY CRAWFORD’s creative team at WNBC, the idea of how lucky he is was the first thing that popped to mind. Keith is going to be promoting the largest local TV investigative unit in NYC while working with Missy and Promo Manager PHYLLIS OHNEMUS. He calls it hitting the promo home run. His first spot dealt with their chief investigative reporter going to Europe to follow the NYPD anti-terror program. As if he needs more to be ideal, his hometown of Schenectady is just two plus hours north. Keith has moved from Chicago, where he was a promo producer at the FOX/CW duop for VP STEVE DONALD, who Keith says gave him his first big market. Niiiice. Mr. Moran has also worked doing promo and production in St. Louis, Indianapolis, his hometown at WRGB and in Albany. Can’t wait to see you soon, KM. Til then a big Well Dunne! Keith!

As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, it’s time to enjoy what might be the funniest TV episode – ever – the Turkey Promotion epi of WKRP in Cincinnati. “As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly,” is a line so classic, nothing more needs to be added. We all have stories about promos, events, shoots, people that did something silly…and it’s time to wrangle them in one place. Enter the brains of Topical Boot Camp, SYDNEY RUBIN, who is collecting antedotes, stories, and even folk tales of promo mishaps. What Fun! Share with her and we’ll all have some great laughs. Yes, names will be changed if requested to protect the guilty or easily embarrassed.
Time to rethink your voices for your stations…lots of contracts expire end of December. The only choice is Well Dunne! Don’t think otherwise.
