Ready to take on a great new job as well as the daunting traffic in Atlanta is RICK SNYDER who is the new VP of Creative for Fox O&O WAGA. Isn’t that JEFF ZELLMER’s slot you ask? Well it was, but Jeff has gotten a promotion to handle regional creative management duties, so that led to Rick’s focus of WAGA itself. Very cool…growth in a time of no-so-much. Mr. S is vacating his Director of Creative Services role at ABC affil WKRN in Nashville. The Elon University grad has a long track record working with FOX. For instance, he got his first TV station job producing promos and doing graphics for Fox affil WGHP in High Point (home of furniture) and then graduated to VP of Creative for WBRC in Birmingham. Again Fox. Then down in the Big Orlando, he repeated the VP Creative role for WOFL. He tore things up in a great way as VP for Speed Channel in Charlotte. So there ya have it…he’s the ideal candidate for Atlanta. See ya Rick before 2019 dawns. Everybody, a big and hearty Well Dunne! Rick.

Looks like Hurricane Florence is headed to the coast of NC and SC and VA. Best hurricane tip shared by a lifelong hurricane alley resident is this: Fill zip lock bags with good water and throw in freezer. They will keep foods cool when electricity goes away and can be used as drinking water after they melt. You’re welcome.

Trading the Gateway to the West for the Gateway to South America is branding guru JOHN SWEENEY, newly named VP of Brand Marketing at NBC down Miami way, aka WTVJ. John’s decamping KMOV in St. Louis for the network-owned slot. Yes, you get extra points if you know The Lou is Gateway to the West. What do you think that Arch is for? The Fordham grad has worked doing marketing at WVIT in Hartford, another NBC property. He served as Promo Manager in Houston at NBC affil KPRC and at one time even had his own NYC-based prodco. He turned to marketing after putting in seven years at Fox News Channel. Miami is muy caliente, John. Well Dunne!
Well Dunne! going out to JEFF ZELLMER who has added responsibility as Regional VP of Creative Services for the FOX TV stations. It seems like just yesterday he was in Charlotte…then in DC…the children grow so quickly…

With all the election activity going on (oy! Such ads!) thoughts turn to DC, with one such lucky man not thinking about Congress, but about creative. JAMES COSGROVE is headed to the nation’s capital to be the Promotion Manager at FOX, WTTG. He’ll be making the transition from Fox in Atlanta where he was Promotion Manager under the wonderful JEFF ZELLMER, whose mentoring will prove James primed and ready for the DC marketing environs. Add his creative work for Hearst in Sacramento and ABC in LA to the mix, and you have a great picture of James’ wonderful background. He’s even a grad of James Madison U, which is not that far from DC. Well Dunne! James!

Well, here it is 12-12-12…the last time in a long time when we can have this kind of fun with the date’s numbers. So write a check, or sign a contract…something fun.
This time of year, companies announce promotions and it’s so much fun to write about. One such promotion comes out of FOX in Atlanta, where JEFF ZELLMER is the newest member of the VP club. Excellent news and Well Dunne! Jeff.

Out in Sacramento, KOVR Promo Manager DON SMITH had an interesting event the other night at dinner. A phalanx of police greeted him when he went out the door for dinner…seems there was a shoplifter who had mistakenly chosen the station parking lot as an escape route, and, well, after punching a cop, it all ended up being a very different dinner break for Don. BTW, he didn’t hit the cop – the shoplifter on the run did….but you knew that, right?
Think About This: “Our life is so short that every time I see my children, I enjoy them as much as I can. Whenever I can, I enjoy my beloved, my family, my friends, my apprentices. But mainly I enjoy myself, because I am with myself all the time. Why should I spend my precious time with myself judging myself, rejecting myself, creating guilt and shame? Why should I push myself to be angry or jealous? If I don’t feel good emotionally, I find out what is causing it and I fix it. Then I can recover my happiness and keep going with my story.” ~ Don Miguel Ruiz
Same great city…different office. CARRIE KING is a Chicago lady through and through and she’s switching offices in Chicago, decamping the Trib where she has been Regional Vice President Innovation & Imagination at Tribune Creative Group | Central U.S. Why is she leaving Trib, where she’s practically grown up handling such promo slots as CSD WGN America and Director of Creative Services for CLTV News? She’s the new VP of Creative Services at FOX WFLD and WPWR in the Windy City. She began today (but only if you are reading this on Monday July 9…otherwise, not so much). She’s got a real handle on Chicago, which is one of those unique markets that really does have their own way of thinking… and speaking. She’s studied at Lake Forest’s Barat College and at the amazing School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I know she lives on the northside, so let’s guess she’s a Cubs fan. She’s going to love working with Well Dunne!s NICK SANABRIA. Well Dunne! Carrie.
