The yin and yang of life…balance always seeking to right itself. Up-down. High-low. Hot-cold. One talented writer producer is doing the yin and yang to perfection, and it’s a wonderful thing. KRISTEN TWELE is heading to Orlando where she’ll be adding her talent to the creative services pool headed by CSD KYM PEOPLES at WKMG, the Graham CBS in the Big O. That’s the hot part. The cold part is Denver, where she has been promoting at KDVR, the Fox affil. The Memphis bred Kristen has worked in the south before – at Fox affil WBRC in Birmingham. She interned at WMC in her hometown. Best of luck to Kristen on her new adventure. Let’s all give her a Well Dunne!

 

STEPHEN ARNOLD not only has the best hair in the business (he’s been told that in person – he shyly smiles…) but now the music man working with his CSD CHAD COOK has a new campaign called Ready. Pictures are worth a thousand words….check it out yourself.

 

Tuesday was a great day for KTVU’s ERIK CANDIANI. He loves films…loves writing even more. And Tuesday his screenplay Tribal got not one but two kudos…it was just named a Quarterfinalist in the 2017 BlueCat Screenplay contest and a Semifinalist in the PAGE Awards. Well Dunne! Erik. You can ask him about the script…it sounds very exciting. And we thought Tuesday was only exciting because of the tacos…

Who’s heading to Palm Beach to be the new Creative Services Director at Scripps-owned WPTV? None other than JAMES McKAY, that’s who. GM STEVE WASSERMAN called himself to tell about his new creative chief, who will be making the trip south from his Orlando job as Promotion Manager at FOX affil WOFL. Originally from LA (show of hands – who knows where Diamond Bar is?) James is quite the Floridian now. James has worked in the Sunshine State in Tampa TV. The whole TV and promo gene runs deep…he’s married to KIM PEOPLES, who heads up the creative at CBS affil WKMG in The Big O. So once James begins in PB, on April 26, he’ll become a commuter hubby. Ah, the joys of the Florida Turnpike! Well Dunne! James.

Reminder – EXTRA EXTRA is going to the Cable Show. If you haven’t put them on your news release list, well, tick tock people.
