Keeping it in the family, the new head of creative at ABC’s Houston operation is coming from their Fresno operation. DAVID LEE is headed to KTRK in the Bayou City where his official title will be VP of Creative Services. He hates leaving Fresno and the folks at KFSN, but Houston will be an exciting new city to conquer. The Gulf Coast will be a real change for David, who hails from Great Falls, Montana and has worked in Macon, GA, KMSP in Minneapolis and Spokane, Washington. Fresh seafood and trips to the beach are now possible and going to be great fun. KTRK is in suburban Houston (now considered close in) and at one time, had a swimming pool in the front courtyard. Sadly, the pool is no more. A big Well Dunne! to David.

If you like Home Alone (the first one, of course) and are in the Los Feliz area this weekend, you can catch The Unauthorized Musical Parody of Home Alone at the Rockwell Table & Stage. Only in LA.

The Malay word “Sayang” has no equivalent word in English to describe a common emotion in Malaysia; affection, love, sorrow and pity all at the same time. It’s a word that we could use more often. It’s the word describing the news from Houston that TOM ASH is retiring. Tom is the Vice President and Director of Creative Services at ABC’s KTRK and has been for nearly 21 years. During that time, he’s been on top of bringing eyeballs to the sets from Galveston to Brenham and beyond; watching the city explode growth-wise. He even worked with the (infamous) Marvin Zindler, a legendary character whose antics inspired Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. Tom deserves to retire and answer to only himself and family, but TV marketing will be the less for it. As he put it: After 20 years at KTRK-TV and nearly 10 more at KPRC-TV…(and a few years at other TV stations along the way)…I’m retiring at the end of the month!  It has been a great ride.  I’m the luckiest promo guy ever to have worked in a great city, Houston, and at KTRK, the best TV station in the world.  And to have been a part of ABC/Disney, the greatest media  company ever.  I have no plans…been too darn busy to think that far ahead! Honestly talented creatives with a sense of humor, wit and generosity are not that easy to come by. Well Dunne! to an exciting new path, Tom.


Think About This: " What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.”  ~ Saint Augustine
