Austin, Texas isn’t just home to UT and capital of the Lone Star State. It’s an amazing, vibrant city that loves music, bar-b-q, TexMex, SXSW…and Willie Nelson lives there. It’s where MARK WILLENBORG has been CSD (named changed to Director of Marketing) for KVUE for over 12 years, doing a magnificent job and being the greatest guy around. A gentleman – which is worth more than gold. Got word today from his GM, former promo pro KRISTIE GONZALES, that Mark is hanging up his TV hat so he can join The Wittliff Collections at Texas State University in San Marcos, which is just down the road from Austin. (yes, the outlet mall there is THAT good…) Mark will be marketing their archives of writers, photographers and musicians from Texas and Mexico including the afore-mentioned Willie, plus luminaries like Cormac McCarthy and Sandra Cisneros. THAT sounds muy exciting. Mark worked for two other operations under the Belo banner, KHOU in Houston and Texas Cable News in Dallas. He’s got a degree from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches. Nobody deserves a new exciting path, but TV will be the less for it. Well Dunne! Mark. BTW, he’ll be at KVUE until February 4…give him a Well Dunne! yourself.


Job Opening – Director of Marketing KVUE Austin (best News Director in the country MIKE REDDING!!!)

 

 

Job Opening  – Sr. Promo Producer KSHB Kansas City 

 


KEVIN KOLBE, who heads up the creative at FOX50 in Raleigh, is embarking on what seems like an ideal promo, only he’s not really doing it as a promo.  Kevin’s a big fan of Keifer Sutherland and 24, and when it was on (before Kiefer became The Lone Survivor), Mr. Kolbe teamed with uber-popular Raleigh market MIX radio man BILL JORDAN to do Two Guys Talking 24 vlog.  Now that 24:Legacy is coming, in an exciting new form but some some of the same characters, they’re turning on the cameras again and are going to repeat the fun. What a great promo…FOX folks you listening? They’ll be posting their vlog on Tuesdays….I’ll be there. Well Dunne! Kevin and Bill.

Austin, Texas is one of those ideal towns (traffic not included, of course) and people really hate to leave once they arrive. That made it easier for MARK WILLENBORG, Director of Creative Services and Marketing at Belo’s ABC affil KVUE when he was looking for an editor and a graphics pro. He didn’t have to look far. KASEY LANSANGAN is his new artist and  he comes over from a slot at KXAN. He’s also worked at WDTN and he did freelance work under the cool name Flying Tricycle. Sitting in the editing seat doing post production work is TYLER WIETHORN, who’s a Longhorn UT grad. He’d been at KEYE doing promo as well as doing animated textbooks (!) for Powerhouse Animation Studios. A double Well Dunne! to Kasey and Tyler.

Promo pro CHRIS SLOAN turned his marketing talents honed at NBC into a successful Miami-based company, 2C Media that produces dynamite promos for lots of other networks. Well Chris has also stepped it up and is producing shows as well. His newest effort premieres Tuesday night at 9 on the Travel Channel. Check it out, and check out the USA Today story as well. Very exciting and Well Dunne! Chris.
