More and more TV marketing people are taking their talents and decamping the frenzied station-side gigs and finding new ways to make money and still be creative. Yes, it not only can be done, it IS being done. Take LOWELL BRIGGS for instance. Lowell has an amazing and impressive background in TV. He’s been a Video Journalist for CNN, worked in news in Portland, Maine, Boston, Providence and Raleigh before discovering his creative side (which was always there) and moving to marketing for stations in Birmingham, Alabama, Hartford and Fox in Boston. He’s now pivoting and will be Senior Marketing Manage for Avid. And he won’t have to move…they’re in the Boston area. Great to see talent find new ways to bloom. Well Dunne! Lowell.

It’s about 100 miles from Hartford, CT to Boston…not all that far to drive. One can even commute, although I can’t imagine the traffic on the I-84 to I-90 trip. Whatever, the trip is the next step in LOWELL BRIGGS career when he decamps his slot as CSD at NBC’s WVIT in Hartford to take the VP of Creative Services slot at FOX’s WFXT in Bean Town. Lowell is bringing a fabulous background, including in-depth research and news experience, from such markets as Raleigh, Birmingham and Boston itself, where Mr. B once worked at New England Cable News. He’s even worked as a VJ at CNN and been on-air as a reporter. Very Cool. The Kenyan College grad must surely know his way around Boston and will be hitting the ground running first part of August. A hearty Well Dunne! Lowell.

Dee-troit City’s FOX affil has added MIKE CARLONI to their creative team. Actually, that should read RE-added Mike, who got stuck in that “Downsizing” thing awhile back at the station. Mike is officially writing and producing now (and no doubt editing) for KEITH STIRONEK in Motor City. This is a very exciting event – his rehiring has made Keith very happy, excited and confident about his team. Well Dunne! Mike.
