How time flies. It seems like it was just yesterday that it was the beginning of summer and now Thanksgiving is demanding our attention, as well as Santa and his merry band of retailers. It was back in late summer that JOHN SWEENEY took over the VP of Creative Services slot at KAKE in Wichita. The Fordham grad is hard at work at the helm of the ABC affil owned by Lockwood Broadcasting. He’s making the switch from perpetually humid Miami where he headed up marketing for NBC. He’s had creative leadership roles at KMOV in St. Louis, KPRC in Houston, WVIT in Hartord and headed up his own prodco in NYC called New Morning Productions. Sounds like KAKE has a great guy. So obviously they should celebrate with a cake. (Badumbum…) Well Dunne! John.
Will update on JIM McNULTY’s political race when the vote is counted. Cross your fingers.

She’s starting on Thanksgiving Day…it’s auspicious to pick such a memorable day to begin a new chapter. CHRISTINE VARGAS is doing just that – picking Thanksgiving, when she starts as News Promotion Manager at Tribune’s FOX affil in San Diego. I bet they’ll have pumpkin pie (at least) for her, eh? Christine is coming over from CBS affil KFMB in SD where she started as Promo Coordinator and was upped to Topical then Senior Promo Producer…shows good work and an eye that her former CSD, MIKE STEWART, had. Very excited for her. Well Dunne! Christine.
Listen up folks in the DC area. Well, more specifically one particular area, namely Gaithersburg, Maryland. Tomorrow (Tuesday Nov 7) is election day and the talented JIM MCNULTY is running for City Council. Do we need to tell you to vote? OK, then – GO VOTE. For him. The University of Scranton grad started his creative career (yes, he’s a TV creative!) at WYOU in Wilkes-Barre, PA and honed his creative promo chops in DC at WJLA, WRC and WBDC before catching on at Discovery Home/TLC and working at any number of creative leadership roles for the behemoth media co. Now he’s the owner of his own shop – Wurdsmith Creative. He’d be a super councilman! So Gaithersburgers…get out there and do the citizenship thing. Well Dunne! Jim.
Worry not…none of the WRAL promo folks were injured in the fire that broke out at their Raleigh studios on Friday night. Good news indeed.

What happens when two class acts and all-round great guys combine their efforts? You get the combo of DAVE BAUMANN and STEPHEN ARNOLD, that’s what happens! Mr. Dave is the new Marketing and Creative Director for Stephen Arnold Music. Brilliant. Dave’s had music in his soul and this seems like the dream job one often conjures. His background in marketing is as impressive as his smile – CSD at WXYZ in Detroit, Marketing Director of KSTP in his home state of Minneapolis, Marketing Director of KIRO out Seattle way and Senior Graphic Designer at Twin Cities Public TV. All long runs with award-winning output and results. One of the best parts of the new adventure is he won’t be relocating from Detroit. He and his better half love it there. Stephen Arnold is the head man for the music company that bears his name and the music you hear on many, many stations around the world. Would mentioning the network jobs be too over the top? Let’s hear it for Dave. One. Two. Three. Well Dunne! Dave.
JIM MCNULTY, who does fab promo work for his own shop out of DC (you should keep him in mind what with November fast approaching!) was blesse by the Pope yesterday. Beyond terrific. God bless.
