What do you say about a talented protégé whose work you’ve admired for many years…when that person announces they are retiring. How can that be? Retiring? Yes, it’s true…retiring. Using the “R” word is JIM ROTHSCHILD, currently Station Manager of legendary WRAL in Raleigh. Jim is a St. Louis man who has two stations on his resume: KMOX (now KMOV) and WRAL. That, my friends, is what is known as totally solid. Perhaps there’s a short stint at KTVI in St. Louis, but that’s just foggy memory. Hearing he’s retiring is dispiriting. Some people are like Atticus Finch…they’re always there. Jim is following the lead of current WRAL GM STEVE HAMMEL, who is handing in his GM biz cards and using the “R” word himself. April is when Jim steps away. Between the two men there is approximately 80-plus years of experience. Be impressed. There aren’t cap letters or colors to indicate how sincere and deep this is: Well Dunne! Jim.

Think About This:  “Despite what you may believe, you can disappoint people and still be good enough. You can make mistakes and still be capable and talented. You can let people down and still be worthwhile and deserving of love. Everyone has disappointed someone they care about. Everyone messes up, lets people down, and makes mistakes. Not because we’re inadequate or fundamentally inept, but because we’re imperfect and fundamentally human. Expecting anything different is setting yourself up for failure.”  ~  Daniell Koeke

Think About This: "This is the first step toward understanding the process of real, lasting change: simply knowing with certainty that you can do whatever you need to do. This understanding has a dual edge: On the one hand it increases your confidence and dignity. On the other hand, it places full responsibility on you if you fail to make the change you set out to make. But this is a good thing, not a guilt trip." ~ Bo Lozoff

Happy New Year. Let’s all let out a “thank heavens ’09 is over” and move forward with positive energy and the hope that a blank slate will fill with wondrous events. Not that resolutions are on my list, but postings for Well Dunne! will be more up-to-date. Promise.

Long time KMOV TV Director of Operations JIM ROTHSCHILD is going to head east, leaving his hometown Arch in the rearview and set up shop as Director of Ops at legendary WRAL in Raleigh, NC. Jim’s a talented guy who has also worked at KTVI in St. Louis long ago. What a great slot he’s heading to. Well Dunne! Jim.

Well Dunne! Talent’s RICH VAN SLYKE, who has done some amazingly great work for DAVE BAUMANN at WXYZ in Detroit and JUDY SHOEMAKER at WLNE in Providence, is now the new image voice for Detroit’s  Classic Rock Station 94..7 WCSX. Rich is hot people…you should really give him a listen and sign him before his price goes up (and it will).
