Working somewhere for 40 years is an amazing achievement. Working for 40 years at the same TV station is a rarity indeed, but it happens. WFAA’s Production Manager JERRY CADIGAN has done it. And he deserves our kudos. But its our condolences that are needed now. Jerry’s son was one of the people killed in the helicopter crash this weekend in NYC. TREVOR CADIGAN had been a WFAA News Intern and had moved to NYC to take on the world of real journalism. His future was unlimited. Handsome, smart, enthusiastic….he had it all. The WFAA Family has a Go Fund Me campaign which in a few short hours has over achieved, which is exactly the kind of person Jerry is. The guy who always comes through for everybody. If you can, show Jerry that TV people stick together. There’s nothing well dunne about this….

What’s not to like? Palm Beach, FL is having a great winter, being just south of most of the wet and chilly weather experienced in the Sunshine State. Enjoying the temps and palms is JEFF MATTHEWS, who is the Senior Writer/Producer at Hearst’s ABC affil, WPBF. Jeff is a Univ of Texas Longhorn who comes to Florida after working at NBC affil KXAN/ CW affil KBVO in Austin. Well Dunne! Mr. Matthews.
It takes an iVillage to change a business card. So it shall be with KELLI CALLANAN who’s not VP of Marketing there. She moves over from MTV Networks, where she was Senior Director of Integrated Marketing. Well Dunne! Kelli.
Over at Showtime Networks, JOHANNA FUENTES is the new VP of Corporate Public Relations. She was at Bravo in a VP Communications slot. Rah!
And a big Well Dunne! to former SMU classmate JERRY CADIGAN, promoted to Production Operations Manager at Belo’s Dallas flagship station, WFAA. Jerry is super and has ALWAYS been in love with the process of TV.
Think About This: o more than exist, live. Do more than touch, feel. Do more than look, observe. Do more than read, absorb. Do more than hear, listen. Do more than think, ponder. Do more than talk, say something. ~ John H. Rhoades
