Don’t you just love Philadelphia. Besides the cream cheese, Philly is home to outstanding food, historical one-of-a-kinds, gorgeous neighborhoods, quaint and expansive shopping, an active arts life, and great people. From the Main Line to the sketchy neighborhood where Anthony Bourdain found a to-die-for Thai soup place, Philly rocks. When you call it home, you never really wander, even if you don’t live there for years. Some of us are lucky enough to be able to find a job that allows creative expression AND is in Philly. That brings us to HENRY VAZQUEZ, who is a Philly man and is returning to the City of Brotherly Love at the end of the month. Sadly, his talents and leadership skills will be lost to the world of TV but he’ll be joining a former TV marketing pro in his new slot. Henry’s going home to be Creative Services Director for the Philadelphia Freedom Valley YMCA, working with former NBC CSD LAUREN BACIGALUPI. It’s been five years since Henry got to do day-to-day there, and his wife is going to be much happier now that they’re no longer splitting their zip codes. Henry has a stellar TV marketing background as VP Director of Brand and Digital Development at Hartford’s WTIC, CSD at Vegas’ KLAS, and Promo Manager at WCAU. The man has interned at Paramount through the WGA and written all kinds of marketing for the folks in Philly TV. He even has an MBA…he reads all the time. Yep, he does. Obviously a favorite, let’s all shout Well Dunne! Henry.

It’s cherry blossom time in DC. Despite the snow, the cold and the general wintery weather hanging on, it’s still cherry blossom time in the capital and that means spring is not far behind. Beneath the cherry blossoms at the FOX station, there’s news to share. BRAD CRUM has been named Promotion Manager for WTTG, that’s FOX5. He’s making the switch from inside the building where he was head of Promotion and Advertising for WDCA, the MyTV affil. Brad is a Stanford grad who has worked at CBS Network in LA as well as for XM Satellite Network where he was Director of Branding and Marketing Services.
Taking Brad’s slot at WDCA is COSMO LOSCO. Gotta love the name Cosmo. That’s him in the adorable picture. The Philly native began his career at WPVI in Philly under the direction of VP Creative, LAUREN BACIGALUPI, who Cosmo credits with getting him into the world of TV Promo. He then worked for the talented JOHN BALDWIN at WGAL in Lancaster before joining DONNA WILSON’s creative team at WRC in DC. Cosmo’s been a promotion producer at WTTG and WDCA most recently. BTW, his picture gets him gold promo stars. Well Dunne! Brad and Cosmo!

Think About This: To think that we need sadness or outrage to motivate us to do what’s right is insane. As if the clearer and happier you get, the less kind you become. As if when someone finds freedom, she just sits around all day with drool running down her chin. My experience is the opposite. Love is action." ~ Byron Katie
