If you read yesterday’s post, you know that Scripps’ KGTV in San Diego has a fabulous new animator/editor. Well, they also have a new Marketing Director, who is equally as talented and fun as the aforementioned animator.  Who did they find? She was right there at the station all along – they named Promotions Brand Manager LEILA STILWELL to the post. Hurray – a promotion!  She began at the ABC affil as a Writer Producer and worked her way up, successfully handling being a Sr. Writer/Producer, Supervising Producer and the title she had. A California girl down to the blonde hair and attention-getting smile, Ms. Leila also worked  for Hearst’s KSBW in Salinas. Yes, she also went to school in the Golden State. Let’s hear it for a very happy-sunshine creative. Well Dunne! Leila.

San Diego is just a few miles down I-5 from LA, so the same palm trees, ocean side living and California laid back lifestyle remains the same. So its all good for ANDREW BIDWELL, the new nightside Topical Producer at Scripps’ ABC affil KGTV. His first day is today, if you read this October 12.  Up in LA Andrew was involved in lots of fun entertainment producing for E!, where he hit red carpets as well as edited, researched and handled social media. He spent time doing talent relations for Oprah and even did some things with TMZ. Andrew will be welcomed heartily by Promo Manager LEILA STILWELL who’s wrangling the creative now that STAN MELTON is back in DC. It’s all great. And with that we say Well Dunne! Andrew.
