He’s a bull dog, a Georgia Bulldog that is. Thus JOSH MOREY has been living and doing very well career-wise in Alabama, which in football lingo isn’t really home turf. But he’s loving it. Josh and family recently celebrated his new job – Marketing Director of Birmingham’s Fox Affil, WBRC. It’s a 92 mile trip northwest from Montgomery, where he had been Marketing Director of WSFA, the NBC affil and Raycom flagship. He honed the promo craft while writing and producing down in Albany, GA for WALB. Know he’s gonna love Birmingham. And Birmingham will fall in love with his lovely family. Well Dunne! Josh!

Job Alert – TV News Graphis Designer WRAL Raleigh (work with SHELLY LESLIE !!)

This from the wonderful and fabulous BONNIE BARCLAY, VP of Marketing for FX Design Group who has been on an adventure with her family around America: In the dark theater, the voice came up before the first frame, with immediate recognition.  Without blinking or stumbling, I knew it as Walter Cronkite.  We were visiting FDR’s Little White House in rural Georgia, and stopped in the theater for the short video that all museums proudly suggest as your first stop.  But through the war footage, the polio footage, the presidential campaign – it was Walter’s voice that not only brought it to life, but lent the austere gravitas that only his voice could.  We could nightly wrap ourselves in that cashmere blanket of a voice and know that we might make sense of the world.  That is the power of just one voice.

Did this week just whiz by or what?! Kudos to the community bank that caught the crooks trying to drain a certain bank account that is close to my wallet and heart. Talk about being on top of things – smaller banks are the best. I don’t believe one would get that kind of service with the Too Big To Fail guys.

Playing catch up since hires during the February book aren’t tres abundant…let’s hear it for KATHARYN DEVILLE who was upped to Corporate Director of Marketing for Raycom. Katharyn is an LSU tiger who earned her degree from LSU in Shreveport. After a first job as a jack-of-all-trades newspaper pro, Katharyn became a News Producer for KSLA in Shreveport then went over to WGNO in New Orleans, still in News where she became an Executive Producer. From there, she went to Big D and WFAA where she grew into a Digital Producer then Digital Marketing and Product Manager. Before making the leap to Raycom corporate, she was Marketing Director at KTBS in, where else, Shreveport. A big Well Dunne! Katharyn.

Former Promo Pro BRAD MOSES has been GM’ing it and has a new station to wrangle. Hope all the folks at KAKE in Wichita welcome him warmly. Well Dunne! Brad.

JOHN RICE at Charlotte’s WBTV is all cool with a new news set. Yeah BONNIE BARCLAY and the talented folks at FX Designs for the new digs.

Is there a better way to cool off than a nice cold margarita, repleat with salted glass rim and ice cubes? Why no; not pour moi. So for those reading this while taking refuge from the Vegas heat, take note and get your RSVP ready for just such a liquid oasis thanks to the one and only BONNIE BARCLAY and her boss MACK McLAUGHLIN of FX Design Group. Come Wednesday at 6, Mack is mixing up the ‘ritas himself while hosting at The Mirage. Come one come all…but you have to RSVP. Send an email to bbarclay@fxgroup.tv and prove you were raised with manners and elan. That way, they will be expecting you and won’t run out of limes. Oh, and as a special bonus OLIVIER COHEN of Hybrid TV will be mixing Caipirnhas, the Brazilian concoction known as their national cocktail (perhaps in homage to the World Cup?) Have one of both for me and tell them all Well Dunne! 

Speaking of Brazil…Love it! El Rey Network has a soccer/spy thriller series in the works for debut July 15. Called Matador – it has nothing to do with bull fighting. Bet all involved are glued to the World Cup, eh?

Today there’s an embarrassing wealth of riches in the line of new job news. Let’s start a favorite whose announcement comes with an invite for YOU to party with her at the Station Summit. Celebrate BONNIE BARCLAY’s new job…she’s been named VP of Marketing for the FX Design Group. Perfect combo, imo. Ms. Bonnie has a very exciting resume. She’s been VP and Chief Marketing Officer for Chyron, consulted the Scripps group through her Branding Iron moniker company, and headed up Creative and Programming for WSB in Atlanta. Other stations include WSOC in Charlotte, WAVE in Louisville and WFAA in Dallas. She’s a Midwest girl – totally the best. 

Now, about that party….join Bonnie, FX and Giant Octopus for a Late Happy Hour (doesn’t even kick off until after 10 pm) at their Suite at Planet Hollywood. What night? Silly party animal…all three nights.  They’ll have specifics on which suite, but if you congratulate Bonnie, you’ll be one of the first to know. She’ll, of course, contribute to the blog and when she asks for a picture for posting here, remember there’s only one rule – no nudity.  Big Well! Dunne to FX, Giant O, Late Happy Hour and Bonnie.

ELLEN STONE has news of her own. She’s the newest member of the EVP Club with her promotion to EVP Marketing Bravo Media. She’s been with Bravo for seven years and they just love her there. She’s also been at Lifetime Entertainment Services as Director Consumer Marketing. Her agency background is impressive as well, including agencies Bozell Worldwide and J Walter Thompson. She’ll be NYC based. Well Dunne! Ellen.

Kevin has a degree from the coolest art school – Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota. Well Dunne! Kevin.

Also at FX comes word that AL LAGOR is now Managing Director of Motion Design. He has a station background that includes WHDH Boston and loves sports. Well Dunne! Al.
