“Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.” Anybody feel that way with jobs in TV? Uh huh…The Godfather part 3 nails it, right? Anyway, MIKE CUNNINGHAM has been doing creative work outside the ‘real TV’ category and now, he’s the producer for Local Memphis Live at Nexstar’s WATN in Memphis. He’s been Promotion Director in Des Moines at KCWI where he produced Great Day Morning Show. He’s a Purdue grad who’s headed up creative at KTUL in Tulsa, KGAN in Cedar Rapids and KCCI. He’s recently been Creative Marketing Director for the Ames Times in, where else, Ames, Iowa. Enjoy Memphis and say hi to Elvis for us. Well Dunne! Mike.

Think About This: “A writer is a writer not because she writes well or easily, because she has amazing talent, or because everything she does is golden. A writer is a writer because, even when there is no hope, even when nothing you do shows any sign of promise, you keep writing anyway.” ~ Junot Diaz (winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, 2008)
