‘There’s no place like home for the holidays.’ When you sing this lovely song this year, think of SPENCER ERNST, who is home for the holidays and he’ll be sticking around because he has a job in his hometown. The hometown in question is one shared…St. Louis. Gateway to the West and city of the best baseball team in the world (refrain from contacting me about this truth, please – minds will not be changed) Spencer Ernst is the new Digital Content Producer at Meredith’s CBS affil, KMOV. Yes, the same KMOV where the office window views are the Mississippi, the Gateway Arch, the Old Cathedral and the eastern US horizon. Best in the continental US. (again, save the feedback…) Spencer has been down I-44 in Springfield at KYTV for the past several years, doing wonderful promo work and enjoying the Ozarks. But the job at KMOV is a homecoming, since he was once there managing kmov.com and doing all the social work as Broadcast Assistant. He’s a Mizzou grad and a grad of Lindbergh High as well. If you pay attention at all, you know the importance of the high school… Huge happy holiday Well Dunne! Spencer.
If you haven’t seen the Dunkirk extended trailer shown before Rogue One, you have missed the best trailer seen in perhaps ever. Hunting down the trailer house that did it…they deserve any and all kinds of celebration. For once, the word awesome is appropriate.
Think About This: “Well," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn’t know what it was called.” ~ A.A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh
St. Louis – home. Gateway to the West. Hard on the Mississippi, as they used to say. Where they play winning baseball by the classiest of baseball clubs. And over On The Hill, one can get the Italian food one’s tastebuds usually only dream of unless you find yourself actually in Italy. All this is prelude to news from KMOV, the CBS affil. Yes, the KMOV that has the best views of any office in ‘The Lou’, what with them overlooking the base of the Arch, the river, several bridges and The Old Cathedral. Checking into his new office with this million dollar view is TONY GETTS. The Ohio U grad is definitely a Midwesterner (high compliment indeed) who began his TV journey in Toledo where he wrote and produced promos at WTVG. From there it was on to WBNS in Columbus and then WHIO in Dayton, a mere 70 miles west. He’s been down at Cox’s ABC in Orlando under the palms before trading Lake Iola for the Mighty Mississip. A big St. Louis Well Dunne! Tony.
‘Ride where you are planted’ might be JOHN RICE’s motto. When he was at WBTV in Charlotte, John raised funds and pedaled his bike to help cure cancer. Now that he’s calling Alaska home and wrangling the creative for Denali Media Holding’s stations across The Last Frontier, John isn’t giving up his bike or his fundraising. Mr. Rice is participating in the Alaska’s Clean Air Challenge Cycling Event done in concert with the American Lung Association. He’s got the whole station involved as Team KTVA. You can help him out if you feel so moved by clicking here. Well Dunne! John and I bet your scenery this year will beat the stuffings out of the Charlotte environs (no offense Charlotte, but have you seen the Chugach Mountains?).
