What do you do when the following happens: 1 – your dad has health problems and 2 – you see an opening that is a step up from your current slot career-wise. You go for it, of course. Proximity to family, especially when all is not well, is job 1, as Ford used to say. JORDANA HOUCHINS added 1 and 2 and is heading to Phoenix from her plum slot on David Hershey’s KTVT creative marketing team. She’ll be headed to the Valley of the Sun towards the end of the month to take the Creative Brand Manager slot at TEGNA’s KPNX, NBC. She learned promo at KING in Settle and WCCB in Charlotte before heading out to LA where she did creative for KTLA, KABC, and KNBC as well as a stint working for Queen Latifah. She’ll be loving Phoenix, but she better eat all the TexMex she can before going out – Phoenix does not have very good (if at all) TexMex (alert the Chamber of Commerce!). Well Dunne! Jordana!
Speaking of Dallas, however did we miss sending out a big Well Dunne! to HOLLY ROMERO back in the early spring when she took over as for Dallas’ KDAF, the CW in Big D. Holly came down to Texas from being Assistant Creative Services Director of Hearst’s WISN in Milwaukee. The Tucson native has a degree from University of Arizona and has worked doing marketing for KOLD in her hometown as well as WTNZ in Knoxville. A belated but enthusiastic Well Dunne! Holly.
What a treat – writing about women in the biz. Anybody want to take a wild guess as to how many women head up TV station marketing departments? Go ahead…correct answers will be posted later. A solid number guess or a percentage is fine. Will there be a prize? Maybe…
Whoa there…what’s this silly nonsense about the FCC wanting money to comment? You say it’s true? Perhaps we should all pitch in and pool our money so we can call FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai names we can’t put in this blog. Imagine, a GoFundMe….
