Ever run into a person who makes your job easier and your spirit lighter? When you do, it’s like getting a beautifully gift wrapped present. BRANDII TOBY-LEON is just such a person, and now we have some amazingly great news about her new direction. She’s been named Director Public Relations at TV One, so she’ll be moving to the DC area since TV One is in Silver Spring. It’s a family move, with her handsome hubby and utterly adorable little girl making the new city a real home. Ms. Brandii had been with Scripps operation in Knoxville, handling press and PR for DIY and HGTV. She moved to Tennessee from NYC where she handled PR for WNYW and WWOR, the Fox operations in NYC. Yes, Ms. Brandii (and that is the correct spelling) is going back to a city she loves. She earned her Masters at American U in DC. Let’s hear it for a very special lady. Well Dunne! my dear.

Pittsburgh is the home of so many very creative people. For instance, several Well Dunne! Talent’s are Pittsburghers and, with the exception of some nasty winter weather, they love it. JAY SILVERS even likes the cold. Come early December, Pittsburgh will welcome yet another creative when JENNY DOLPH checks into her new position at Hearst’s WTAE where she’ll be the News Brand Producer. Jenny is an Indiana native who has a sheepskin from Perdue. She’s built up some producer chops in her home state, at stations like WLFI, WSJV and WNDU doing on-air promos. She handled six different Gray TV stations as Web Editor and has been at her current post as Promo Producer at WBND for several years. CSD TERRY KOWALSKI is going to miss her for sure. A big Well Dunne! to you Jenny.
Got some wires crossed about Indianapolis. Reported that adorable KATIE WARTHAN had been tapped as Promo Manager at WXIN…but that was not on the mark. CSD BOB ST CHARLES hired her as Lead Producer for CBS4. My heartfelt apologies to one and all. That Promo Manager slot at Fox is still open. Check it out via this link and consider it a Job Alert!
