Leaving TV is something most everyone has thought of…some more than others and on some days more than others, too. If you can find a great slot that still uses the talents and skills TV promotion supplies, great. Such is the case with MATT HYATT, one of my faves who hails from St. Louis.  He’s been Creative Services Director at Meredith’s CBS affil, KPHO in Phoenix. Matt is one lucky guy…he’s going to Intel and staying in the Valley of the Sun, too.  All that creativity is going to be used for the internal Intel projects. TV will miss Matt, but he gets a big ol’ Well Dunne!

Job Alert – Matt’s CSD slot at KPHO.

Insight into HBO’s True Blood success in marketing. They failed to mention the shirtless males, which is quite a draw…but that could just be a personal thing.

Stand up to Cancer! That’s the headline today and a reminder of the importance of the show and it’s focus tonight. No excuses for missing it, since it will be on ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, Discovery Health, E!, G4, HBO, HBO Latino, MLB Network, Showtime, The Style Network and TV One and over 30 online streaming partners like AOL, Yahoo! and YouTube. 8 E & P/ 7 C. Well Dunne! to all the brilliant management behind the decision to air.

The highway between Phoenix and Tucson is well traveled. The 116 mile trip seems further than it sounds (think traffic and mountains) but ANDREW CALIENDO will not only be taking it when he wants, not because he has to. Andrew has taken the Promotion Manager slot at CBS affil KPHO in Phoenix. He’s going to be working with CSD MATT HYATT and my favorite Art Director CHRIS AYERS. Andrew’s been down wrangling the creative at KVOA, the NBC affiliate in Tucson. The Phoenix slot will be like old home week for Mr. C…he once worked there writing and producing. Well Dunne! Andrew.

Get a lot of rest this weekend. Monday will be the start of the new season, what with Martha Stewart unpacking for her new slot at  Hallmark Channel (I wish Martha would help me move…I bet she never  breaks anything and isn’t one of those people who ends up with boxes that never get opened) and Oprah kicking off her last season. There’s tons more, of course, so grab your vitamins and realize now is indeed the time to rationalize buying that 72 inch hi-def.

Topical promotion is a real art. You have to mix creativity with a major time crunch and news room people skills and do it over and over daily. It can be the most fun spot of all. Such is the case with the new Topical producer for NBC affil WOAI in the Alamo City, San Antonio. Texan BRIAN HAWES is now so close to the Alamo, he can stroll over if he wants. Of course, he has no time, since he’s doing Topicals. Well Dunne! Brian. And a shout out to CSD DAVID STOTTS who is looking forward to moving into his new house.

The moisture in arid Phoenix the other day was KPHO CSD MATT HYATT’s tears. He’s saying goodbye to TIFFANY WOODRUFF-HUBLER, his Promotion Manager. She’s been at the station for about 10  years and is going to make a switch – heading over the Scottsdale and a new job with GoDaddy. Yes, her slot is open and not only would you get to work with Matt, one of my faves and a St. Louis native to boot, but also an incredible Art Director CHRIS AYRES. Sorry Matt, but Well Dunne! Tiffany.

Now THIS is the way to travel. Hate packing? Yeah, not the best part of the trip. Put it in the hands of click here.
