JOSH COMBS moved from one ‘battleground state’ to another, leaving Florida for Ohio. His move and this post has nothing at all to do with politics, of course, but there ya go. It’s summer. We should all be poolside or in Michigan. Anyway, Josh is the new head honcho of the branding, marketing, promo and creative department at Media General’s WCMH in Columbus, the heart of Ohio. Official title is Creative Services Director at the NBC affil. And he’ll shine at this. The slot’s been open quite some time, so Mr. Combs must have wowed them, which I bet he did. He’s coming from MG in Tampa, WFLA, where he was Promotion Manager. Josh has promo’d at Little Rock’s KLRT where he was CSD, at WBKI Louisville where he produced commercials and in the Florida Panhandle where he Marketing Director at WMBB. Now that he’s a dad, he’ll be closer to his roots and his alma mater, Indiana University Bloomington. One of his former bosses told me he was the most hard-working person he’s ever worked with. And He’s a great guy – what is it they used to say on SNL “Get to know me”… He deserves your whole hearted Well Dunne! Josh.

Congratulations to both WXYZ in Detroit, where DAVE BAUMANN does his creative marketing magic and to KLAS in Denver, where LEE MINARD is the creative king.

Think About This: "Our ordinary mind always tries to persuade us that we are nothing but acorns and that our greatest happiness will be to become bigger, fatter, shinier acorns; but that is of interest only to pigs. Our faith gives us knowledge of something better: that we can become oak trees." ~ E. F. Schumacher
Indianapolis’ own JOSH COMBS likes Little Rock, AR because it reminds him a lot of the places he’s lived and worked. It’s kinda southern like Panama City, where he did that creative thing at WMBB. Kinda southern like Louisville, where he’s commercial and creative services producer at The CW affil, WBKI. It’s kinda Midwest like Indie. So the choice of locale seems ideal, since Josh is going to be the new Creative Services Director at Newport’s FOX affil in the Arkansas capital. Josh and the beautiful Mrs. Josh are very excited about the new city and his new slot at KLRT. Well Dunne! Josh.

Ok, when you wake up, get your coffee and then sit down at your computer every AM, what do you do? According to Adweek: “E-mail is the first thing most Americans check when they log online in the morning, according to a study conducted by ExactTarget. The study found that 58% of people start out by reading e-mail, followed by 20% who check search engines or portal sites first and 11% who go straight to Facebook.” Show of hands…is this surprising or are you thinking they are watching you?
Think About This: “Part of the process of our soul’s evolution is realizing that some beliefs and ideas that seemed perfectly logical in the past, no longer serve us and so, we release them. As we do, we are lifted up in consciousness, and from a new place, a higher place, we see everything differently.” ~ Ric Beattie
