Trying new things is how we grow. Trying something new and deciding it’s not what you wanted it to be then changing back to something is a major lesson and one that shows the solid character of a person. Classify JEREMY MOORE as a solid character; knowing yourself is a key to a happy life. Jeremy has been wrangling the creative for Terre Haute’s WTWO and WAWV, NBC and ABC in the Wabash Valley. He did a great job, but he really liked being Operations honcho better. He had that job before taking on creative. So the good folks at Nexstar have let him post his now open Creative Services Director slot while he can attend to the operations of the duopoly. It’s a solid operation with a good GM, a super sales guy who used to handle creative (shout out to TIM SANDERS) and a good ND. Wow…hit them up for the slot. You’re welcome. Well Dunne! Jeremy.

I know we should all be biting our nails in anticipation of the Oscars this Sunday, but the buzz is pretty flat, imo. However, MANNY THE MOVIE GUY (former CSD Manny De La Rosa) has his predictions. Click here.
Over at NBC in the Desert, Marketing and Creative Services guru MATT PARISE is going to be watching tennis courtside while his station is the media sponsor for BNP Parabas tour stop. Nice. Well Dunne.

It takes a lot of guts to bet on your own talents. And there’s nothing more rewarding, even when the rewards can be a bit tight monetarily. Creatives in entertainment marketing have all the know-how, verve and knowledge to make an amazing impact on their own. The latest intrepid soul to shake things up is BRAD CRUM, now doing business under his own banner: Brad Crum Creative. He’s got it goin’ on in all mediums, so hit him up for work that will definitely work. He will, indeed, miss the good folks at FOX DC where he’s been promoting both their stations. Brad’s background includes time at CBS Network in LA. Yeah, he’s that good. Well Dunne! Brad.
Cinco de Mayo…what a great excuse to bring attention to two of the best Spanish/English voice talents you could use….Liliana de Miguel, who lives in Mexico City and translates like someone who works at the University, which she does….and Chris Smith who lives in Houston AND DF (which is how the folks in Mexico City refer to themselves). Don’t get stung with bad talent or bad translations. Happy Cinco…or as MANNY DE LA ROSA would say, Cinco de Manny!
Our own Promo Cowboy, BARRY FITZSIMMONS, who is amazing on so many creative levels, has finally gotten his marketing Podcast going (someone writing this might be a guest one day….) and you should check it out. Click here. And it’s a good one with BILL HARTNETT…another major favorite!
Have you noticed the A-listers who are voicing spots…not appearing on camera, but voicing? God bless Ken Levine, one of my favorite writers (imdb him) and his take on why this is NOT a good idea and why you need to rethink voice choices. Of course, you should think Well Dunne! first, but you know that already because you’re fabulous….
