Non-TV people call promos trailers. So it makes perfect sense that DAVID TRAYLOR would be doing TV promos (and more). He’s the new animator and art person and editor at Scripps’ KGTV in gorgeous San Diego. Being beach adjacent will be a switch for him – he’s been in the Denver market, where he most recently was Motion Graphics Designer for AXS TV, Mark Cuban’s cable channel. He’s done some great creative for Altitude Sports and Entertainment (think Denver Nuggets, Colorado Avalanche, etc), and has been Motion Graphics for KDVR/KWGN Denver. He studied at the Art Institute of Colorado so he’s going to bring his A Game to sea level. Well Dunne! David.

All those good thoughts you sent to JIM WINDSOR paid off. He’s in ICU but all went well with his surgery. Actually, it went better than anyone expected. Get Well, Jim.

As the first candle was lit on menorahs across the world last evening, it marks the perfect time for all of us to take a moment to think about miracles. They come in all sizes and forms, sometimes coming around as expected and sometimes quite the opposite. But they do happen. You have to keep your heart open and expect them. So no matter what challenges are clouding your life, the lighted candle should remind you that all will be well.   

Former promo pro TODD BALLANTYNE, who left the TV biz after heading up creative at KYW in Philly as well as Comcast’s CN8 and Promo Manager at NBC’s WCAU in the City of Brotherly Love, experienced a miracle this weekend. He debuted a new creation in the aforementioned Philadelphia – Papa Todd has a baby daughter! Do we need to say the Ballantyne family couldn’t be happier? Well Dunne! 

On the opposite side of the country, out Sacramento way, FOX 50 (calls KTXL) On-Air Promo Manager NATE DARLING is off the market and engaged.  The holidays always bring a rash of engagements. 

JIM WINDSOR needs your healing thoughts….going to have some surgery and it’s always good to have as many folks in your corner pulling for you as you can. Jim’s currently doing promo at FOX in Chicago, WFLD, and has been spinning marketing magic in Milwaukee, Palm Beach and Akron. I’ll keep you posted on his progress…you keep him in your thoughts. And don’t hesitate to Facebook him!

Traveling for the holiday (or just traveling)? These are seven VERY informative and great ideas on how to make the travel hassle better. No really, these are super ideas.

JIM WINDSOR is stocking up on sunglasses and sunscreen. Not just for the PROMAX Station Summit in Las Vegas that’s coming up, but for his new job ocean side in Florida. Jim will be heading down to Palm Beach to head up the creative department at WPEC, the Sinclair CBS affiliate in the city of royal palms and millionaires. Jim’s honed his promo chops at such locales as WMAQ in Chicago, WITN in Milwaukee and KHTV in Houston.  Before heading south from his current slot as Promotion Manager at WKEF, the ABC/FOX station in Dayton,Ohio, he’ll represent WPEC in Las Vegas, so all you peeps at The Station Summit keep an eye peeled so you can tell him ‘Well Dunne! Jim’.

Over at E!, which uses the always exciting exclamation mark in their name (!) comes word that JEN NEAL is the new EVP of Marketing. She comes from her old slot of CMO at BBDO North America. Wow..that’s impressive. Before that she was at PHD’s New York office working on such accounts as TLC, HBO and BBC America. Well Dunne! Jen. 

Is it just me, or does anyone else see the irony of drastically cutting station/network/cable outside adverting budgets in a world where selling outside advertising is what pays the bills….?

JIM WINDSOR spent the weekend getting his new office in shape. A super way to spend time for the new Promotion Director at WKEF ABC/FOX in Dayton. O-hi-O. Jim’s an absolutely super guy who has a real knack for strategy. The University of Wisconsin-Madison grad was CSD at WITN in Milwaukee for 7+ years and then scooted down to help out WMAQ  in Chicago. He earned his promo stripes at WITI Milwaukee FOX and also sharpened his talents as Writer Producer at KHTV in Houston as well as WNDU in South Bend.  Dayton is going to love him! Ya gotta love a guy named after a royal castle. Well Dunne! Jim.

In keeping with the Sports-themed week, time is now to enter the Cynopsis  Sports Awards. Read all about ‘em here. Shout out to former PROMAXer CHRIS PURSELL who wrangles this wonderful sports-entertainent publication from the good folks at Cynopsis. 

Is it me or does it seem like an odd idea to play the muy expensive SuperBowl spots before the SuperBowl? Just thinking out loud….

This from one of my faves – MIKE MONSELL, who wrangles the Creatives at ABC’s WPVI in Philly: “With great pleasure, the Creative Services Department welcomes EVAN CUTTIC to the position of writer / producer. For the past year, Evan has been doing the news, working as an Action News producer.  But now his talents and effort will go to promoting the news! Evan has actually been with the 6abc family since the summer of 2008, first as a CS intern, followed by a three month stint as a temporary associate producer. A 2008 graduate of Penn State University, Evan was an honor student and production entertainment captain of the PSU Dance Marathon (THON). Please join me in congratulating Evan, and welcome him to his new role with 6abc.” So everybody, let’s hear it…Well Dunne! Evan. And thanks Mike.

Remember yesterday when we shared the good news about JIM WINDSOR’s new gig at WMAQ in Chicago/ Well, that part is totally correct. He’s digging Chi-Town and I bet they are digging him, too. However, he has never worked in Little Rock. I made a mistake. No word on whether he has even visited Little Rock. OK, carry on.
