There must be a wonderful southern expression that covers the terrific news out of Meredith that kicked off the week. I think the closest one is ‘that just dills my pickle’ meaning it’s all good. Meredith promoted not one, not two but three (!) wonderful marketing women (!) to Station Manager slots. Well Dunne! to TERRI PECK at Las Vegas’ KVVU, BLANCA ESPARZA-PAP at KPHO/KTVK in Phoenix and COREY HANSON at KPDX/KPTV in Portland, Oregon. All three lovely ladies are smarter than room allows and are now going to use the insight and background they have honed doing creative marketing to really lead. Could not be happier. Who at Meredith made that decision? Gold star to you. Great way to start a week. Again, Well Dunne! ladies.

Access to nature. Trees, trails, bikes, babbling brooks…drive 40 minutes one way to the ocean…the opposite way 40 minutes and you have mountains. Sounds ideal and that’s how JAMIE HOLMES described Portland, Oregon, her hometown. You could hear the smile when she was describing how much she loves the Northwest part of the US. And Rose City is just the right size to make life livable…all the plusses of a big city minus many of the hassles. Better yet, Jamie has a new role to be excited about – Director of Marketing, Programming, and Creative at Meredith’s KPTV Fox 12 and KPDX MyTV. Yes, she just made the switch from KOIN where she was CSD for about six years. She’s run her own shop as well as lived in Seattle (another easy drive from Portland) where she wrangled Tribune’s creative efforts in the Northwest. Not only is she in her favorite place to reside, but she’s again working with ADRIENNE ROARK, a super GM who was an absolutely great ND. Happy endings and that should make your Wednesday people. Well Dunne! Jamie.
