Thursday is getting a “This and That” treatment today. Just a lot of things happening and no time to talk and verify new jobs landed, like the two at Q13 (FOX in Seattle…that info is for tomorrow). So here’s a few items, a job and something for your heart…

Have you ever heard “the gates are wide open”? In an Irish household, the phrase was used when more than one person passed away in a short amount of time. At the moment, the gates are w-i-d-e  open and St. Peter must have gone high tech to process all the souls. Nexstar in Rochester’s ED CRONY has the greatest family. Send them your best thoughts and comfort…his two daughters and his lovely wife have lost their grandmother and mother. Well Dunne! Talent’s JOEY V’s father passed away earlier in the week on the west coast. And TIM SANDERS of WTWO lost his grandmother Wednesday.

Former Promo Pro MARTY SCHLESINGER, who now is the bicycle king of San Antonio (my title, not his…he’s too cool for that moniker) is on the mend from a health scare. But all is well and his sense of humor is totally mended.

Holy cow…a newly placed head of marketing – one with no TV experience – actually asked her staff what a Topical was. Yep, that sure did happen. OMG. I’ll never tell where.

This weekend, AMANDA FORD of WPTV in Palm Beach is getting married…as is former promo pro LAUREL PORTIE (The List, KTVT)  who ‘s tying the knot in Malibu. Happiness.

Job Alert – Retail / Promotions Producer KCPQ/KZJO/KRCW Seattle

Well Dunne for Thursday October 15, 2009

It’s a very exciting time for MARTY SCHLESINGER. After a fun summer of BMX bike instruction at a California camp (which is a male way of saying “I had such a good time it was like a spa”) he found himself whisked off to the offices at The Reelz Channel and he’s been there ever since. His new title is Director of On-Air Promotions for the folks who are TV About Movies. Of course, this means moving from Hawaii, where he helmed Hearst’s KITV for four years. He’ll be trading one kind of sand (Oceanside) for another (New Mexico variety) but seems very thrilled to be part of Reelz. Well Dunne! Marty. And btw, Mr. S celebrates his birthday on Friday and he has new wheels and a new supercool place to call home in one of the coolest parts of town. Yep, it’s an exciting time for him.

Another exciting time is being had by Well Dunne! Talent’s MARK DRISCOLL. Today, Thursday, Marko tells the SCOTT SHANNON story via podcast. Scott is the famous NYC radio guy and the podcast is from Bob’s book “Turn It Up!”. Lucky me – I got a preview and it’s great. It’s all part of American Radio Tales 1946 – 1996 (visit www.americanradiotales.com). Well Dunne! Mark.

Think About This: “When was the last time you embraced a situation that you didn’t like? Did you complain through the entire experience or did you run away from the situation altogether? If you did either, you missed a wonderful opportunity to be something that you’ve never been before. It just might have been that one thing that you had been wishing for.” ~ Les Brown
