Playing catch up since hires during the February book aren’t tres abundant…let’s hear it for KATHARYN DEVILLE who was upped to Corporate Director of Marketing for Raycom. Katharyn is an LSU tiger who earned her degree from LSU in Shreveport. After a first job as a jack-of-all-trades newspaper pro, Katharyn became a News Producer for KSLA in Shreveport then went over to WGNO in New Orleans, still in News where she became an Executive Producer. From there, she went to Big D and WFAA where she grew into a Digital Producer then Digital Marketing and Product Manager. Before making the leap to Raycom corporate, she was Marketing Director at KTBS in, where else, Shreveport. A big Well Dunne! Katharyn.
Former Promo Pro BRAD MOSES has been GM’ing it and has a new station to wrangle. Hope all the folks at KAKE in Wichita welcome him warmly. Well Dunne! Brad.
JOHN RICE at Charlotte’s WBTV is all cool with a new news set. Yeah BONNIE BARCLAY and the talented folks at FX Designs for the new digs.

Any True Blood fans out there? Do you get a kick out of the fact Bonne Temps is just a quick trip out of Shreveport? We’ll have to ask KATHARYN DEVILLE if she’s into the HBO series, since she’s now a fulltime resident of Louisiana’s third largest city. What’s taken Ms. DeVille (a perfect French name for the Frenchiest of all US states) to Shreveport is her slot as KTBS’s new Marketing Director. She’s been in Dallas at WFAA where she was heading up Digital Marketing and in charge of digital product. Katharyn comes from a news background and has been a producer for stations in New Orleans as well as at WFAA itself. She’s back home now in Louisiana, where she was an LSU Tiger. Well Dunne! Katharyn.
