It all started in Lubbock. Yep, in the near-Panhandle of Texas where LARA RICHARDSON had her first TV job. She coordinated Promos for KJTV and then jumped to USA Broadcasting in Miami where she added Writing and Producing to her repertoire before getting bumped to Director On-Air Promos. From there it was on to NYC to be Senior Writer Producer for Oxygen before catching on with Discovery where Ms. Lara held a series of well-earned titles like Supervising Producer for TLC, Creative Director of History Channel and VP Creative TLC. In 2012 she was tabbed Senior VP of Marketing for Discovery out of their LA offices then just recently her title was again promoted to Group EVP Marketing Discovery, Animal Planet and Science Channel. VERY nice Lara. She graduated from high school in Puerto Rico and Washington State University. A kind hearted soul, she volunteered for the Red Cross after Katrina, and, in true creative style, turned that experience into a documentary. Well Dunne! Lara.

Now, let’s face it…finding a place where the ND doesn’t believe they are marketing pros…where the GM understands the marketing process and you don’t have to convince them it’s important…where your direct boss is one of the best, nicest and smartest ladies in the business (and she cooks too!) … in a big market, well, that’s pretty rare. And that’s what this job is. So my little puppets…let’s find the right person!

SHANNON POWELL didn’t’ go very far to find her new office…it’s in the same beautiful town of Augusta, GA; she’s just leaving her Marketing director slot at Gray’s CBS affil WRDW to become Marketing Director at Raycom’s FOX affil WFXG. The University of Florida grad hasn’t just done cool jobs at WSB and WXIA in Atlanta. She’s a master chocolatier. That’s right – the lady is an expert at truffles and even went to school to know everything chocolate-y. To say this is a sweet lady is, well, too cliché. But c’est vrais! Well Dunne! Shannon.
Another cool lady has a new job and hasn’t had to travel far to report for duty. LARA RICHARDSON is now the SVP of Marketing – Creative for Discovery Channel. She’s been the VP of Creative for TLC, one of the Discovery channels, where she was at one time a Supervising Producer for TLC/Discovery Home Channel. Other creative stops along the way include Creative Director slot for History Channel and History International, Director of On-Air Promotions for USA Broadcasting, a Senior Writer Producer slot at Oxygen. She began her career in Lubbock, TX at the Fox affiliate as a Promo Coordinator. Impressive Lara. Well Dunne!
Congrats to Well Dunne! Talent’s NIKKI STANZIONE on becoming an Aunt. The new little type is going to grow up to be as pretty as her Aunt.
