Off to the Bay Area…that’s KATHIE SMITH’s plan. She’s going to FOX’s KTVU to head up creative/marketing…so many different titles do they all really mean something different? It’s a VP slot..bravo. Ms. Smith is going to be leaving FOX KTBC in Austin. Yep, everybody’s favorite city Austin, capital of Texas and all-round amazing place to live. And that’s a VP slot as well. Kathie’s been in Austin quite some time, so she’s no doubt got a lot of packing to do. Let’s all wish her a Well Dunne!
What can one do when one fails to live up to a promise? Humbly apologize and hope that it’s a learning situation. Such is the case with the one and wonderful BONNIE BARCLAY, whose involvement with Andrew Young Foundation’s documentaries had a high note last Friday evening, when their latest doc hit the airwaves in Tampa, Detroit, Mobile, Minneapolis, Macon and Tallahassee. Should have been in last Friday’s post. Totally dropped the ball. Mea culpa. But wait..there’s hope – in market #1! You New Yorkers can tune in to WWOR this coming Sunday, February 18 at 3pm. The doc is called Facing the Cross. Andrew Young returns to the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tenn. for the first time since witnessing the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Watch. Or record. Quality TV meets history. Rare and worth the time. Well Dunne! Ms. Barclay.
Let’s hear it for GENE ROBINSON who got a promotion recently. He had been Interim Chief Operating Officer for Arizona Public Media in Tucson for the past several months. His usual role was Director of Marketing-Communications and Brand Manager. But he got the official new title (and not doubt duties and compensation) Chief Marketing Officer. Well Dunne! Gene.

DUSTIN MAGWIRE is one lucky guy. He’s just landed a writer producer slot in Austin, TX at Fox’s KTBC working with KATHIE SMITH and the one and only DANI DUDEK. Dustin’s a real Texas so he should be at home in the Lone Star capital. A grad of North Texas up Denton way, Dustin interned at Fox Sports Southwest and worked as an AP for Brush Fire Films in Dallas working on History Channel’s Most Exteme Airports. Way cool. He was Promotions Director at ABC affil KXXV in Waco before moseying down I-35 and his new job. A big ol’ Well Dunne! Dustin. A margarita will be enjoyed in your name.

That presence is who you really are. When you can stand spiritually naked, look at yourself and like what you see, you have achieved a great feat." ~ Ron Rathbun
