Change is what keeps the planet going. Life is change. Every cell…every atom…every everything is changing constantly. When change stops, so does life. So change is good. Up in Portland, Maine, MIKE MARSHALL is about to make a change. After 40 plus years of being in the TV biz, he’s going to turn off the office lights, close the door and see what new adventures life will bring that don’t revolve around ratings and sweeps. Mike is an amazing guy who is currently Vice President of Programming and Marketing for Tegna’s NBC affil WCSH in Maine’s most lovely city. He walked in the door of WCHS in 1976 as Production Director after spending a year at WABI in Bangor as a director. He’s had a series of jobs and titles at the station, each one indicative of his talents and leadership. Above it all, he’s a gentleman.  And he’s gotten to work with one of the very best News Directors ever – MIKE REDDING. Can’t wait to hear what Mr. Marshall dives into next…it will no doubt be well worth watching. Well Dunne! Mike.


Think About This:  You start dying slowly – By Pablo Neruda

You start dying slowly
if you do not travel,
if you do not read,
If you do not listen to the sounds of life,
If you do not appreciate yourself.
You start dying slowly
When you kill your self-esteem;
When you do not let others help you.
You start dying slowly
If you become a slave of your habits,
Walking everyday on the same paths…
If you do not change your routine,
If you do not wear different colours
Or you do not speak to those you don’t know.
You start dying slowly
If you avoid to feel passion
And their turbulent emotions;
Those which make your eyes glisten
And your heart beat fast.
You start dying slowly
If you do not change your life when you are not satisfied with your job, or with your love,
If you do not risk what is safe for the uncertain,
If you do not go after a dream,
If you do not allow yourself,
At least once in your lifetime,
To run away from sensible advice…

A Christmas Story is set in northern Indiana, but in true Hollywood fashion, Ralphie’s house in the iconic holiday movie is actually on the west side of Cleveland. Perhaps TOM DUSKA will have time to drive by and see it when he isn’t doing his creative thing for Scripps’ ABC affil, WEWS. Tom is new to Cleveland – just finishing up his first week on the job as part of CSD DAN COYLE’s promo team. Tom’s official title is Multimedia Marketing Producer so he’ll be doing a lot of varied fun things with an emphasis on late news. He’s been working for WICU/WSEE, NBC and FOX in Erie, PA, handling technical and creative roles.  Originally a photojournalist, Tom later transitioned to graphic artist, eventually moved into promotions/production, and also worked as a technical director. Man does it all. I think it would be cool if he took a selfie at Ralphie’s – or took the whole promo team over there for a selfie…yeah? Yeah!  Well Dunne! Tom.

Have to share a gorgeous and touching holiday promo done up at Tegna’s Maine operation, Portland’s WCSH and Bangor’s WLBZ. By clicking here, you can see the spot conceived and written by MARK PARENT, Promo and Production Manager in Bangor, and edited by Creative Services Coordinator SAMANTHA HAMMOND. News Director MIKE REDDING was so moved by it, he posted it and said he was proud of a station that respects and welcomes all. MIKE MARSHALL, VP of Programming and Marketing at the stations is proud I know. Well Dunne! one and all.



Well Dunne! Talent’s KELLY PIDGEON is multi-talented. Besides his amazing voice, he’s a musician. Take a moment to listen to Boats Against The Current’s latest. (IQ points awarded if you know the name reference).
