Sometimes, one can find themselves in a familiar spot, but realize they have grown from the time they left until the time they returned. When JIM HART looks back at the adventures he’s had since he left being CSD at Scripps’ KNXV in Phoenix, he’ll have a lot to ponder. Today (Monday) marks his return to the ABC affil as head of marketing, and he has put a lot of mileage on his life’s odometer. He’s been consulting the marketing efforts of one of Scripps’ syndicated shows and launched it. That alone would be enough, but no…Jim went to exploring in Europe where he walked The Camino in Spain. If you don’t know what that is, look it up and you’ll agree it’s an amazing journey on many levels. So glad to see Jim back in the Valley of the Sun and happy. Well Dunne! Mr. Hart.
Remember when watching the Super Bowl was a one-screen event and you had to wait to see not only who won the game but wait to view all the cool adverts in it? Today’s multi-screen world has given a lot of pre-play to the $4 million ads as well as all kinds of buzz. More bang for the buck. In pre-game coverage, it seems that touching the heart spots are back – perhaps one will be akin to the famous Mean Joe Green spot that always lands in the Top Commerials of All Time list.
It’s been a tough week for a lot of you…the gates to the Rainbow Bridge section of heaven have swung open. Sadly, CHARLIE VAN DYKE, ANDREA LAIGN, and Well Dunne’s MIKE BRATTON have all lost their dogs. Sending all of you condolences.

Think About This: “The world is full of love that goes unspoken. It doesn’t mean it is felt less deeply or that separation eases a cleaner wound. It’s beauty and it’s pain are in its silence.” ~ Jess Williams for BBC’s Call the Midwife series
