Let’s go to the gorgeous Pacific Northwest for today….and let’s talk about a patient, talented woman who is getting a shot at doing the creative marketing thing. Step up NANCY MacDONALD. She’s the News Brand Producer at Seattle’s KCPQ, where she’s been the Creative Services Coordinator for the last year. You do know that doing logs is a make or break marketing assignment that she no doubt nailed, since she worked in the Traffic Department at the Trib FOX station for eleven years.

Things are looking much brighter for SYDNEY RUBIN, BRENT AYRES and the creative folks at KCPQ in Seattle. Despite this past winter being the wettest on record, the forecast is for sunny and bright thanks to the new hire that’s coming on board the Tribune FOX affiliate. ANDREW MAGPOC is headed to Starbuck’s home base from Colorado. He and Ms. Sydney worked together at KOAA in Colorado Springs and the duo looks to continue to create together again. Andrew was most recently at Professional Bull Riders Inc. Yes, how interesting is that when it comes to resume additions. Andrew handled video of course as Sr. Video Editor. No word on whether he wrangled livestock. His background is fascinating – he’s worked for Oprah at Harpo as Motion Graphics Designer. The Hawaiian Islands saw his work as Creative Director at KGMB, as well as promo producing for KHON and KITV. Syd has a nose for talent. He’ll be the Senior Writer Producer in his Seattle slot. Well Dunne! Andrew.

There’s a lot of movement happening… people moving from the mountains to the coast and vice versa. Three major shifts…does that make a trend? It is a pattern – perhaps it might develop into something interesting. Shift No. 1 is DENNISON HOWARD, a native of Colorado Springs, Born and raised in The Springs, one of the most beautiful places in the country, Dennison is a born storyteller. Started telling stories via his roll as a news cameraman. First at KRDO and then KOAA. He was exceptional behind the lens…was assigned to all the important projects. It wasn’t until his then-CSD SYDNEY RUBIN saw something special and brought him into her department. He loved it…flourished (she’s quite the instructor and mentor) and now he’s on his way to Seattle where he’ll be a writer producer for her team at KCPQ, Tribune’s Fox affiliate. I see a lot more seafood in his future and even more exciting work coming out of the station. He begins March 19. Well Dunne! Dennison.

Adventuresome, confident and adaptable – all hallmarks of those who, as BARRY FITZSIMMONS has dubbed, are Promo Cowboys – those who venture forth, town to town, to do creative work. Unlike some career choices, TV marketing doesn’t offer a career path that generally allows upward mobility without changing locations. But for those who love what they do, jumping into a new market…a new city…learning about different people and yourself at the same time. It’s all exhilarating. SYDNEY RUBIN is about to venture forth and embrace Seattle, where she’ll be News Brand Manager for Tribune’s Fox affil KCPQ. She’ll be working with Director of Marketing and Creative Services, BRETT AYRES as well as GM PAM PIERSON, who has a background in markting. It’s gonna be a lot of fun…and Seattle is going to see some amazing work thanks to Ms. Syd. And yes, she’ll still be available for Topical Boot Camps! It’s all good. And she’s the best. Heartfelt Well Dunne! Syd!
