Hope you’re reading this over your morning cup of (iced) coffee. That way, you can make sure to be at T-H-E session in Vegas. It’s happening at 4 in the afternoon over at Grand Ballroom F at the Mirage. It’s Battle of the Promo Superstars, hosted (moderated, emceed…) by the one and only DAVE BAUMANN. Dave is a man of taste and style who’s Marketing and Creative Director for Stephen Arnold Music. Stephen, btw, has the best hair in the business. Back to Dave, who’s wrangled five incredible CSD’s who’ll go head-to-head with the same story to see who rocks the ‘best’ promo. Competing are LARRY WATZMAN of WBNS/Columbus Ohio, JAMIE HOLMES of KPTV/Portland O, SCOTT ALTUS of KOMO/Seattle, ROBYN KEENEY of KOVR/Sacramento and KELLEN DARGLE of WKYT in Lexington. Robyn is a grad of our Topical Boot Camp, so the Vegas odds are on her (shameless self promotion) as the spot that ya’ll remember best. Right SYDNEY? Bet they’re all going to inspire. As the old radio drag race spots used to say, Be There!

Observations from SYDNEY RUBIN from PROMAX/Vegas: Well Dunne! to the Sony Distribution folks – talkin’ to you RACHEL MIZUNO– on The Goldbergs presentation: an 80’s classroom. Very clever and on theme with the show. They didn’t just phone it in. They topped it off with a clear plastic zip “pencil bag” from that era filled with the erasers of the time and Pop Rocks.

What’s with the tabloid-type shows? A trend? Did anybody think to have temp tattoos for the tabs as a promo? Washable…

Access to nature. Trees, trails, bikes, babbling brooks…drive 40 minutes one way to the ocean…the opposite way 40 minutes and you have mountains. Sounds ideal and that’s how JAMIE HOLMES described Portland, Oregon, her hometown. You could hear the smile when she was describing how much she loves the Northwest part of the US. And Rose City is just the right size to make life livable…all the plusses of a big city minus many of the hassles. Better yet, Jamie has a new role to be excited about – Director of Marketing, Programming, and Creative at Meredith’s KPTV Fox 12 and KPDX MyTV. Yes, she just made the switch from KOIN where she was CSD for about six years. She’s run her own shop as well as lived in Seattle (another easy drive from Portland) where she wrangled Tribune’s creative efforts in the Northwest. Not only is she in her favorite place to reside, but she’s again working with ADRIENNE ROARK, a super GM who was an absolutely great ND. Happy endings and that should make your Wednesday people. Well Dunne! Jamie.
