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.
Job Alert – Writer Producer WKMG Orlando (work with a great team and KYM PEOPLES)

Heading to a new job and much better weather is one of the best around, J.R. VANWASSENHOVE. Unashamedly a favorite. He’s taking the Promo Manager slot at Graham Media’s WKMG, the CBS station in Orlando. Extra bonus points for those who know that WKMG stands for Katherine M Graham, the female media exec who really knew what leadership meant. She was amazing. If you don’t know about her…google it. Better, read a book about her or, if needs must, watch The Post and marvel at how much Meryl Streep looks like her. Back to our man J.R. who left a sweet slot at one of the best TV shops around, WBNS in Columbus. He had a great boss (talking to you LARRY WATZMAN) so why did J.R. leave? To take care of his dad who fought a very brave, very long cancer battle. As a matter of fact, J.R. has made several decisions based on family needs…and that makes him what Midwesterners call ‘good people.’ J.R. is one of those amazing Full Sail creative who has put the magic in work for Fox Sports South, WXIA in Atlanta, and WLWT in Cincinnati. WKMG CSD KYM PEOPLES has gotten tres lucky and all good things are going to happen. Shout out to HR person deluxe DONNA ANSLEY. BTW, J.R., the Big O has grown like mad since you were last Winter Parking but you’ll know your basic way around.. . Well Dunne! J.R.

Think About This: “Teach them the quiet words of kindness, to live beyond themselves. Urge them toward excellence, drive them toward gentleness, pull them deep into yourself, pull them upward toward manhood, but softly like an angel arranging clouds. Let your spirit move through them softly.” ~ Pat Conroy, Prince of Tides
HAPPY HALLOWEEN one and all.
Denver is not at all like Portland, Maine. One is a wonderful seaside port city and the other is a mile high vibrant one. They’re both great in their own way, but mountains and New England rocky seashores really are different. To choose to switch from one locale to the other denotes a spirit of adventure and daring – very exciting. Especially when you get a promotion in job title and responsibility acting as a catalyst. Such is the case with JENNIFER WOODRUFF, who has left Tegna-owned KUSA in the aforementioned Denver to run the marketing efforts of Tegna-owned WCSH in the aforementioned Portland. Her arrival was just in time for the gorgeous autumn New England is famous for. Back in Denver, Jennifer was producer and Designer for 9 News, as they brand themselves. She’s got a degree in Graphic Design and Media Studies from Colorado State and worked doing graphics for Transamerica before joining the TV world. Well Dunne! Jennifer.
MARTY WALL is joining Flex Creative as Director Business Development. Marty has written and produced for just about all the fab shows, syndications, studios, networks and cable nets and he sounds like the perfect fit for Flex. Well Dunne! Marty.

From the mountains to the sea. Okay, more precisely, from the mountains to Orlando, which is sorta half way between the Gulf of Mexico to the west and the North Atlantic Ocean to the east. Obviously a big change in terrain, which is what NICK JOSSENDAL is going to deal with when he decamps lovely Colorado Springs for his new job in Orlando. Nick is heading to KYM PEOPLES’ creative department at WKMG in the Big O. It’s the CBS affil owned by Graham Media Group. He’ll be sad to say goodbye to his current Marketing Director, the lovely SYDNEY RUBIN, under whose guidance he’s grown and bloomed. Nick has been a creative producer at KOAA, the NBC affil owned by Cordillera Communications. A grad of the Art Institute of Colorado, Nick has design skills as well as promo chops. His background includes media work for Altitude Sports and Entertainment, Municipal Services Group, Raecom Productions as well as freelance videographer gigs. The switch finds him in a top 20 market without those lovely mountains, but I bet he’ll keep blooming. Well Dunne! Nick!
Speaking of new titles, let’s hear it for TIM SANDERS, who is adding yet another new title to his business card. Earlier, if you remember, he was elected Alderman in his town, and now he’s been tapped to be the new Local Sales Manager of Nexstar’s WTWO/WAWV in Terre Haute, IN. Yes, he’s looking for a replacement to be Promotion Director since he starts his new job June 1.

Think About This: “The next time you find yourself stuck in a long line at an ATM machine, traffic jam, or supermarket checkout counter, resist your urge to react. Do not get frustrated. Do not become impatient. Do not get angry. The line is there to test you, and to give you an opportunity not to react. But if you do react, the situation controls you. The situation becomes the cause and you the effect.” ~ Yehuda Berg

The American dream is still alive and well, at least in Cincinnati. Take KIMHEART MOEUNG. He’s the newest member of the WXIX creative team. Let’s let Marketing Director KEVIN GORYL tell you more:
We just welcomed Kimheart Moeung to our staff as our new Marketing Producer. Kimheart is a recent graduate from Cincinnati State and came highly recommended from his professors. Kimheart got thrown into the deep end on his first day and could now challenge Michael Phelps in the Butterfly! We are in the process of launching 6 new syndicated shows; Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy, Rachael Ray, Ricki Lake, Jeff Probst and Insider. Plus we are launching a Saturday/Sunday Weekend News and extending our morning news an hour to 11am. So, Kimheart has been thrown into a number of projects from day one and has risen to the occasion each time. His first day was 7/27 and instead of meeting with HR, he was handed a camera and a camera car mount and sent out to shoot a few scenes of an image campaign. Kimheart is first generation Cambodian-American. His parents, Samon (Monica) and Sokhorn (Kevin) came to the US in 1985 from Cambodia. His girlfriend, Erin, and him had a celebratory dinner when he got the job, they’ve been dating for about two years.
Well Dunne! Kimheart and thanks Kevin.

Ouch…not only is Dish Network getting tons of flack about dropping AMC, but they were just named the #1 worst place to work in the US by the Wall Street Journal.
It’s important to think about all things, including sanitation. That’s why the BBC story on Bill Gate’s Reinvent the Toilet Fair is worth a click.
