Clean crisp air with temps from the low 70’s to mid 80’s. Summertime in Colorado is pretty sweet. Its even sweeter when you have a new job. DREW SIDENER is having a sweet summer, sitting in his new office at CBS’s KCNC where the title on the door says Creative Services Director. He was across the proverbial street in the Mile High City at KUSA as Promo Manager for nearly 14 years before jumping to KCNC. He’s a University of Kansas Jayhawk who also did writing and promotion for KDVR. Before unpacking to stay in Denver, Drew began TV life as a News Photog at KTKA in Topeka, WINK in Fort Myers and WFRV in Green Bay. DC was a stop – at Fox News Service where he was a field producer and editor. And he spent several years as a Photog for KPHO in Phoenix. Drew is obviously happy and no doubt KCNC is as well. He’s a man who nows news – even doing Night Assignment Editing for WBAY. Today, we have a win-win. Well Dunne! Drew.

Think About This: “Good humor is a tonic for mind and body. It is the best antidote for anxiety and depression. It is a business asset. It attracts and keeps friends. It lightens human burdens. It is the direct route to serenity and contentment.” ~ Grenville Kleiser

Denver and San Diego seem like very different places with little in common. Where Denver, the Mile High city, boasts winter sports and incredible mountains, San Diego is Oceanside with the best climate in the country. Yet both are vibrant, young-people towns swimming in high tech and entrepreneurs. They’re also two markets that JILLIAN OPPEGARD has on her resume, what with her new job and all. The end of February, Jillian is going to KGTV, the Scripps ABC operation in SD to be the Marketing Manager. She’s been in Denver at CBS’s KCNC as Senior Creative Services Producer and considers Centennial, Colorado home, even though she was born in Lake Charles, Louisiana. She is gonna love working with KGTV’s PHIL KRAFT – they both report to LEILA STILLWELL. Thanks to Marshall Advertising’s LAUREN RIDGLEY for the scoop. Big Well Dunne! Jillian.
Well Dunne! to the entire WDAM TV family who did Pine Belt Strong, a full day telethon to raise money for the victims of the devastating tornadoes that hit the Hattisburg, Laurel Mississippi area. Marketing Director ERIK SNELL announced they raised $200,000 as of 8 pm (when this was written) but there’s still three hours to go. Well Dunne! generous and caring Mississippi citizens.
It’s Groundhog Day as you know, so, if you haven’t decided to make it a great day, then at least muddle through and watch Bill Murray so you can lighten up.

Think About This: “There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.” ― John Lennon
