Hubbard’s NBC affiliate in the Duke City, KOB TV, has promoted KEVIN OLMSTEAD to Creative Services Director. He made the trek west to New Mexico from Louisville, KY about two year ago and he was so much closer to his family in El Paso. And he gets to drive through the most interesting landscape to get to his hometown. Bonus – he drives through Truth or Consequences, NM, a town named after the TV game show. Only in the USA. Well Dunne! Kevin.
Well Dunne! Talent’s KEN BURBANK (whose real name is Ken Eaken) got a wonderful write-up in the Detroit paper…check it out. And of course, check Ken’s voice out as well.

Just beingwithin driving distance of family is a major perk that lots of you share as one of the reasons you move to another market for a promo job. Such is the case with KEVIN OLMSTEAD, who has traded Louisville, Kentucky for Albuquerque, New Mexico. He’s the new writer producer at Hubbard’s KOB TV, NBC in The Duke City. ($5 Starbucks card to the person who can tell me how that nickname came about…no fair Googling). A native of El Paso, he’s now just a little ways up I-25 from his hometown. While in L’ville, he was at FOX 41. CSD VINCE GASPARICH is thrilled to have him on board. Well Dunne! Kevin.
