MICHAEL BROUDER has a new job but is staying in the same city – always good news for those who are not particularly thrilled with the act and art of moving. Mr. B is the new Creative Services Director at WTHR, the Dispatch owned NBC affil in Indianapolis. He’s making the switch from Tribune’s stations, WXIN – FOX and WTTV – CW in Indy. His background is very interesting, and includes Director of Marketing and Network Presentation for Fox Sports Net out of Atlanta and Director of Creative Services at WGN in Chicago. He’s a Midwest guy and that’s the best. Well Dunne! Michael.

Chicago’s MDs are busy today with both NICK SANABRIA and SUE BERG getting better and better thanks to medical advances. Like all great Well Dunne! Talent, they are only out a few days and then back to the mic! And if you’re wondering what MELANIE HAYNES is up to…well, she’s in front of the camera again! Doing a new film. More on that to come…

Any of you game to spend $18.50 for one (1) movie ticket for the new Tom Hardy film? Told the reason for the high price was they had recently installed leather seats in the theatre and put in a new sound system. Hmm, wonder what marketing classes they attended to come up with that.

Back home again in Indiana. It’s a song sung before the start of the Indy 500 race…and it’s also the theme for LINDSAY BLEDSOE’s latest career move. She’s returning to her home state after a job sojourn in Milwaukee, where she did cool TV promo work for WTMJ, the Journal station in The Cream City (has to do with brick color, not cows or cheese). She’ll be hitting the Indianapolis scene where she’ll be taking on the promo topical duties at FOX for CSD MICHAEL BROUDER. The Valpariso U grad will no doubt love being in the Crossroads of America. Well Dunne! Lindsay.

For all you who struggle to find the perfect candidate for your open slots, there’s hope. Here the tale of one such match from Fox59 (WXIN) in Indianapolis, where CSD MICHAEL BROUDER found JEFF FIELD. Let’s let Michael speak for himself: “I am very happy to let you know that Jeff has joined the FOX59/Indiana’s 4 team in the newly created position of On-Air Promotion Coordinator.  He comes to us from Tribune’s regional creative services department in Chicago where he worked in a similar capacity, but now with the added benefit of being close to his alma mater, Indiana University! Since arriving at the beginning of the month, he hasn’t missed a beat promoting two of the top CW and Fox affiliates in the country!” A big Well Dunne! to Jeff.
