LARRY WATZMAN is always full of surprises – always doing that little unexpected thing that makes his work (and his life) ever so interesting. One such surprise is now public – he’s heading to the long-vacant WBNS Creative Services Director slot in Columbus. In Ohio…the most wonderful name to write. Go ahead…it’s really fun to write. Anyway…Larry is going to start in June at the Dispatch-owned NBC affil in Ohio’s capital. He’ll be departing Tegna’s NBC affil in Atlanta, WXIA, where they just got nominated for a boatload of Emmys. Must have been doing something right. The Boston U grad has worked at Comcast in Philly, where he impressed the best editor I know, as well as headed up creative for NBC in Dallas, WIBV in Buffalo and was part of a Stephen Arnold Music initiative called RevNu (which might not be spelled correctly…). Larry’s a rock star at heart and whenever he comes close to a guitar. Yes, he’s a great source for music knowledge (dibs on Larry should there be a spontaneous trivia game that breaks out with him nearby). So, for Larry, it’s Hello Columbus. Well Dunne!
Job Alert – Marketing Director WXIA Atlanta
Sincere sympathy going out to PR man RAY ECKE, whose father made his transition. He was no doubt proud of Ray, who is a super great guy.
Is this face red? Oh yeah, brilliantly red. Last week, you read about John Goodman and his new job at LA’s The Hit House as VP of Music Supervision. Well, as it’s not John but JESSE GOODMAN with that new music gig. I am SO sorry. The actor John Goodman isn’t a very nice guy at all, and I know Jesse is. So it’s a double extra super uber apology and I owe Jesse a drink. You owe him your business.
