Always such a treat to write about the artists out there. Graphics are key to any ad – duh. And in today’s world, good TV art people are hard to find.  Its particularly problematic when TV loses a super-talented one to another line of work. Well, she’s still doing art but not for TV and entertainment/news. That’s what happened to a Denver-based creative, DEB CATALANO. The UCLA grad and Savannah College of Art and Design grad (impressive) was Art Director at Fox affil KDVR after doing such things as 3D animation for Fox Family Channel in LA and Imaginary Forces, Novocom and Pittard Sullivan. Yes, all top notch drop-dead great places. Deb has taken on the title of Chief Technology Officer for Ignite Creative, a super agency in the Mile High City. No doubt she’s a very happy camper. Big Well Dunne! to Deb.

 

Condolenses to Well Dunne! Talent’s KEVIN GASSMAN whose aunt passed away from cancer in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

When it comes to living in the most exciting, ideal US markets, KELLY DONNELL wins.  Kelly is trading in the temperate seaside beach-y perfect San Diego for the adventuresome, outdoorsy energy of Denver. He’s the new Creative Services Director of Tribune’s KDVR, Fox in the Mile High City. He’s transitioning for Tribune, which is where he was in San Diego – at the Fox affiliate. The Florida Gator by education really has lived and worked in the best cities: Honolulu, New Orleans, Chicago, NYC, San Francisco and Tucson. Come on…those are fabulous places. He’s a lucky man. And a talented one. A great big Rocky Mountain Well Dunne! Kelly

 

Remember last December when B&C named Cleveland’s MICKI BYRNES the GM of the year? Well, Ms. Micki did it again and nabbed the GM of the year for the Tegna chain. She’s a former promo pro who is obviously one fab leader at WKYC. Does that give any of you big chains any ideas? No? Why the heck not? Yeah, you know who you are…

 

 

The gates of heaven have been swinging wide open of late. Word comes via RONN KILBY that voice talent DOUG PAUL has passed away in the Atlanta area. If you want info on the memorial, etc, please let me know. Doug had a one-of-a-kind sound and you have all heard him on the many promos he did for networks across many decades. God bless you, Doug.



And yes, there was no WOMAN WRITING done yesterday. It was a day without…
