Yes, it’s election day, but we know that. Boy do we know that. Let’s relax today, allow the people to vote. What we’ll do head north…to Alaska. It’s what CHRIS HUSSEY has done now that he’s ensconced as Marketing Director of Dinali Media’s KTVA, CBS in Anchorage. Yes, he will see moose, as JOHN RICE did when he was in the 49th state. Hopefully pix will be posted. Chris, who has a degree from University of Wisconsin at Superior, is a wordsmith, who has been a freelance writer as well as a TV promo guy. He learned TV marketing at KBJR Quincy Media’s NBC in Duluth where he was Promo Manager as then CSD. He’s marketed newspapers, written about gaming, done podcasts and was a fitness instructor. He comes from his slot as Marketing Director of Quincy’s KWWL, NBC in Waterloo, Iowa. Well Dunne! Chris!

How’s this for a way to start a new year: watching fireworks explode over snow-covered mountaintops – and in the background, shining through, the Northern Lights. Yeah – one of those perfect life moments stored in the permanent memory section of your soul. This is how JOHN RICE started 2016. John is doing what most of us say we want to do – he’s changing it up and seeing what happens. Repotting himself is the phrase that comes to mind. In this case, changing it up means a move to Anchorage, Alaska from Charlotte, NC. It’s 4,335 miles according to Google maps, and if you would want to drive it (not in winter) the trip would be the basis of a documentary. John is the new Director of Marketing for Denali Media, the company that owns and runs several stations in the largest state. In his new role, he’ll be visiting and exploring The Last Frontier, including Sitka, recently named one of the prettiest small towns by Travel and Leisure. John’s main office is at KTVA, CBS, and from the sound of things, the place is gorgeous – all the latest equipment and even an award-winning Devlin Design news set. Alaska is an exciting difference for Mr. Rice, who’s a Texas boy with a degree from UT Austin. He’s done production (including documentaries) and headed up marketing efforts since he got that diploma. Call letters on his resume include KHOU in Houston, WCNC and WBTV in Charlotte. Join me in celebrating a very exciting chapter in John’s life adventure. Well Dunne! Mr. Rice.
