The Chinese have a curse that goes something like this: May you live in interesting times. Well that’s happening. Looking at the microcosm of entertainment marketing, there is less job changing in the creative side of the biz than there are moving GMs and News Directors. Which is unusual, since the ‘crazy creative people’ are always looking for another mountain to climb. Ergo less WD!T blog.
Is anybody interested in knowing about temporary marketing leaders? Several major stations owned by major owners (of course, that means most of them right?) are filling creative marketing leadership roles temporarily. Perhaps they are trying out the person-company match? Or are they saving money or looking better than reality on a balance sheet? Asking and if the answer is yes, then there’ll be several new columns coming your way.
Tip of the hat to new News Director JOHN KIRBY, who’s handling the news at Grand Junction’s KREX and accompanying operations. John’s open to giving kids their first job, so if you know anybody, send them John’s way. Well Dunne! Mr. Kirby. Your mother would be happy…
Think About This: “May you live in interesting times. May you be brought to the attention of the authorities. May you get everything you ask for.” ~ Rumored Chinese curses
