Hearst does a wonderful job of promoting people from within. When one sits and actually thinks about entertainment marketing (mainly station-side) the career path is not very promising…so companies that look to see who is ready to move to another challenge are to be commended. So commendations to Hearst in promoting NATHAN WHITE to Creative Services Director of their Des Moines CBS affil, KCCI. Nathan was Assistant CSD at their Louisville property, WLKY. He actually had two other jobs there as well…writer producer and before that news videographer. So he’s a highly promotable guy. He also shot news at WBKY in Bowling Green. Obviously, he has a great eye. Well Dunne! Nathan.

What is it about the draw of a TV newsroom and the marketing thereof? It’s a strong connection and, when one steps away, the attraction never really fades to black. One progresses and finds new aspects of themselves in different jobs, keeping all the skills of promotion and production and creative discovery sharp. That’s what PETER ZEMANSKY has done…he’s now Marketing Content Specialist for a start up creative concern in Des Moines named Bing Bang. He’s pushing his personal boundaries for their clients, and he sounds very happy. He’s been at it a bit and, yet, he does indeed miss that newsroom pace. He interned at CBS News in DC and most recently was Community and Marketing Manager for FOX’s KMSP in Minneapolis-St. Paul. He knows Des Moines and was Assistant CSD for KCCI in Iowa’s capital city. Sounds like there are exciting things on his plate. Well Dunne! Peter.

There are no better marketing leaders than those who have tried many different aspects of communication. Take PETER ZEMANSKY for instance. He’s been a sports intern, a newspaper reporter and copy editor, a sports editor at a newspaper, a TV sports intern, a camera op at a racetrack and casino (that sounds like a lot of fun with some great stories to share, eh?), an intern at CBS Evening News in DC and a jack-of-all-trades Assistant Director who handled everything from teleprompter to directing newscasts to shooting promo footage. Now, some HR people might think this isn’t all the recipe for a promo leader, and those HR people would be dead wrong. Peter knows how things work, knows what’s involved, and won’t make decisions that are out of sanity’s range which can be made by those who have never actually done things. So Peter’s new role as Community and Marketing Manager at FOX’s own KMSP in Minneapolis – St. Paul means they got a great one. You can use that as a quote. Mr. Z is making the switch from being Assistant Creative Services Director of Hearst’s KCCI in Des Moines. The Drake grad is going to shine up north. A new north star. Well Dunne! Peter.
