This is a particularly happy post. Happy for GABRIEL LUNA (aka Gabe) who is going to get his first CSD slot. Gabe is a doll…a wonderful family man as well as a very talented promo pro. He’s headed to Tulsa to be CSD for Scripps’ NBC affil KJRH. Starts on or about July 2, which means he has to juggle PROMAX, moving, 4th of July holidays – ouch. You get the idea. He’ll be good with it all. He’s been Promotion Manager for Scripps KGUN in historic Tucson. Gabe’s a San Antonian (GREAT town!) who wrote and produced promos as well as did graphics for WOAI. He then went out to Seattle’s KIRO to hone his craft. Very excited that he’s been given the chance (well deserved) to CSD. OK, 1 – 2 – 3…Well Dunne! Gabe!

“I was only there such a short time when the call came.” This is how the conversation with GABE LUNA began. Gabe is a major favorite (thank you LAUREL PORTIE) and a totally creative ‘One To Watch’ who is the new Promotion Manager of Scripps’ KGUN in Tucson. The call he refers to is one from his father, who had gotten the green light for a double lung transplant. Of course Gabe had to be there, so into the car he jumped and drove I-10 to San Antonio, no doubt in record time. His boss at KGUN, ANDY SCHWABE, and the rest of the management team was supportive, even with the November ratings book workload. Now THAT, people, is a good operation. Andy is a leader who described his new hire this way: “He’s going to bring fresh creativity and energy to our already fantastic group of talented marketing professionals." Papa Luna is slowly recovering, and if you have any extra good thoughts you might want to send them his way. Gabe is back in Arizona, hard at work at KGUN and has a plateful of blessings for which to be thankful next Thursday. Gabe is a San Antonio guy who attended SAC (San Antonio College, which is nearly next to the best restaurant in town) and worked as Production Director of the Trinity Broadcasting Network before jumping into promo work at Sinclair’s operation in the Alamo City. He also honed his promo chops in Seattle. Get Well to Gabe’s dad and Well Dunne! to Gabe. 


Sending condolences to KLAS CSD HENRY VASQUEZ who lost his mother this week.

There’s a marvelous San Antonio vibe going on in Seattle. Nothing to do with sports…it’s a TV thing. Eminates over at KIRO, where Sr. Producer LAUREL PORTIE, who worked in Texas’ River City at KABB’s operation under the wonderful AZALIA HOELTING, has welcomed GABRIEL LUNA to the great Northwest. He’ll be doing promos at the CBS Cox-owned station working with CSD SUSAN CONNOR.  Gabe’s a true born San Antonian (they used to have Native Texan license plates for those who hit the planet in Texas) who did promo at KABB and then was upped to do promos and Graphic Arts when Sinclair combined KABB with WOAI.  Word is he’s a filmmaker at heart and he and the lovely Mrs. Luna are snapping pix all over in their new city. Laurel and he will be on the hunt for a good Mexican food restaurant in the land of coffee and salmon. If you know of  one – share. Well Dunne! Gabe.
