Watz goin’ on? Been waiting to use that line and today it’s happening. The Watz in question is LARRY WATZMAN, the highly creative promo pro who is moving to the desert. Yes, he’s going to enjoy the no humidity warmth that makes you feel so good…never sticky…that Las Vegas offers. He’s headed to Scripps to head up the marketing efforts of KNTV, ABC in Sin City. He’s leaving behind the head job at WBNS in Columbus, Ohio, where his lovely #2 JENNY DOLPH has been tapped as Interim CSD.  Actually, Larry’s title at WBNS was Director of Marketing, Design and Creative Services. I didn’t ask the official title at the new place. He’s worked with my favorite editor when he was VP of Creative Services in Philly at Comcast. Other titles along the way include VP of Marketing and Brand Development at NBC’s KXAS in DFW, and Marketing Director for Tegna’s Buffalo and Atlanta operations. He’s gonna love Vegas and gonna heat up the marketing even more than the summer temps. Well Dunne! Larry.

Think About This: “You are all the places you have been, the sights you have seen, the marvels you have achieved and every soul you have touched. Each passing moment is another brushstroke on the canvas. So rise, live always with passion and heart, and someday you will look back on your life and see a work of art.”  ~  Beau Taplin, The Masterpiece
