Go west – it’s what’s happening for not one but two promo pros: First….There’s something about the Rocky Mountains of the American west. They’re gorgeous, rugged, vibrant and they forge the lifestyles of those living in and near them along their 3,000 mile range. When you’re too far away from them, you miss them. The mountains are luring back a Denver man who’s been doing TV marketing away from the peaks, and he’s going to be in one of the most gorgeous locales the Colorado Rockies have to offer. DAVID REEVE is headed back to Colorado, specifically Colorado Springs where he’ll be the new Marketing Director of KOAA, the NBC affiliate. He and the fam will be departing Tegna’s WFMY in the Greensboro/Winston-Salem market of North Carolina. Along the way, David has been Promotion Manager at WUSA in DC and Exec Producer for Denver’s KUSA. Yes, he’s got his snowboard all ready to hit the slopes. Well Dunne! David.


Second, there’s no question one leaves their heart in San Francisco. Its magic delights every sense. Heading to the City by the Bay is ERIK CANDIANI et famille where he’ll be taking over the VP Creative Services role at Fox’s KTVU in Oakland. Erik’s coming from Tegna’s NBC affil KARE in Minneapolis where he was VP Creative.. He’s comin’ home to Cali where the Candiani’s will be close to family. Erik has been with KOVR in Sacramento as well as in LA at KTLA plus a turn in Denver. Erik is mucho excited and predictions are for some cutting edge creative to hit SF after November 12. Big Well Dunne! Erik.

Do NOT miss tonight’s episode of The Goldbergs on ABC. Why? Well, it’s a super show and tonight’s episode has the wonderful AMY LEVY, of LA’s Amy Levy PR fame, as a trick or treater or something equally fun that shows off her mega-watt smile. Lady has the best smile around. And she has a great voice too.

Jeffrey’s been tapped to be VP and Creative Director of Integrated Marketing at ABC Television. Excellent! Jeffrey has been Director of Creative Services at San Francisco’s KRON as well as Manager of Affiliate Marketing for The WB TV Network. Let’s hear it for the Northwestern grad. Well Dunne! Jeffrey!

Remember that scene near the finish of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade where Indy is faced with what appears to be a bottomless abyss, making it impossible for him to reach his destination and find the sought-after Grail? Despite all the discernible evidence to the contrary that there is no way to cross the chasm, he takes a step – in faith….and finds that the abyss isn’t what it appears. It’s a powerful scene…one that replays itself every time someone makes the decision to go off on their own, leaving behind a solid job with a steady income stream. Today, playing the part of Indiana is SYDNEY RUBIN. Ms. Sydney has been CSD at NBC affil KOAA in Colorado Springs and in about three months she’ll be firing up her own marketing and branding firm. VERY exciting events on the horizon.  The Syracuse grad has a super background that includes working with Magid, WTNH in Hartford, KMGH in Denver and owning a fabulous cottage industry called Broken Branch James & Jellies. Whew…very exciting. Well Dunne! Sydney.
