What would bring about vacation interruptus? A new major move in market #2, which happened thus causing VI. And bringing about the news that lovely ADRIANNE ANDERSON has been tapped to be head of Creative Services for LA’s KTLA. She’s a VP in fact. Sweet. The Hofstra grad has held some pretty impressive titles, like Director of Design and Promotion for WCAU in Philly, then Director of Creative Services for KYW in the city of brotherly love. She moved to LA to be VP of Creative Services for the FOX Television Stations then added VP Marketing Telepictures and Warner Bros TV. Now she’s taking MARSHALL HITES old slot now that he’s head honcho for the entire Tribune chain creative efforts. A big Well Dunne! Adrianne.

Whew…that was close. KHOU’s DALE LOCKETT sent a picture showing the horrible Houston flood waters nearly lapping at the station’s front door. They’re located near a bayou. Sidebar: It’s so upsetting to see such devastation and recognize the places.

I’ve known MARSHALL HITES for quite some time, and he’s absolutely super. Yes, his name does sound like a Cleveland suburb (a joke that he doesn’t always find as funny as I do) yet he’s absolutely an A-1 guy in every sense of the word. Just yesterday he got a wonderful push up the ladder with Tribune, who named him SVP, Marketing and Creative Services. That title means he’ll be overseeing all 42 of Trib’s stations. Best yet, he gets to stay in LA, which I know makes his wife and son very happy. Mr. H has worked at WKJS in Jacksonville, WFLA in Tampa, KCAL/KCBS in LA and has been helming KTLA’s marketing since 2011. And to think it all started in his hometown of Augusta, GA. A big hug goes along with this Well Dunne! Marshall.

Happy birthday to the best young(ish) Irish-British actor around, SHAUN EVANS. I predict, in time, he will be the kind of classy actor that is spoken of in comparable terms as Olivier and Gielgud. C’ya in London.

Making the move from Sunset Blvd to Burbank is JORDANA HOUCHINS. She’ll be leaving KTLA where she’s been doing that creative writing and producing thing for MARSHALL HITES and will be joining the lovely WENDY MCMAHON’s creative crew over at KABC. Jordana started out as a news producer at FOX in Seattle and then made the switch to promotions at one of the top shops in the country, KING. The U of Washington lady also spent creative time at Fox Charlotte. Well Dunne! Jordana.

Don’t you just love it when someone you’ve known ages and ages ends up getting a great job? Yea…it’s so rewarding. The inspiration for this is MARSHALL HITES, who has been tapped Director Creative Services and Marketing at Trib’s KTLA in LaLa Land. Marshall has been in LA a long time, having helmed the marketing efforts at KCBS and KCAL. He’s a Georgia boy by birth who earned his promo stripes in Florida in Jacksonville and Tampa. Did I mention he’s one of the good guys? Yeah, he is. Well Dunne! Marshall.

ELLEN DAVIS, who gets a gold star for being the most prompt person to reply to inquiries ever…well, Ellen is now Creative Director at SmashPoint Creative Works up in suburban Connecticut. The NYC girl will manage on-air for Maury, Jerry Springer and Steve Wilkos. The Umass grad has been freelancing in The Apple and her portfolio is tres impressive with work for NBC, Comedy Central, Lifetime, BBC America, Nickelodeon and HBO to name a few. Well Dunne! Ellen.

It’s the High Season down in Palm Beach, darlings. And word from CSD HEATH MYRICK is that he hired a Graphic Artist for ABC affil WPBF. Already at the keyboard is PATRICK JOSEPH who made the switch from the FOX affil in PB. Heath is thrilled that Patrick teaches music and 3D animation and has his artwork in galleries all over Florida. Wow – take a gander at his paintings. http://www.patrickjoseph.org  Well Dunne! Patrick and Heath.

Best wishes and good healing thought going out to Well Dunne! Talent’s BILL HARWELL down in Austin, TX and to the better half of FOX5 DC’s MIKE HENRY.
