All you folks west of the Mississippi are no doubt able to read this and your email. Don’t know how many down east can say the same.  There will surely be Newsroom stories from Hurricane Sandy. Gives one pause about the ability to control our lives.

The pre-Halloween picture is none other than KTVT CSD DAVID HERSHEY and his entire clan, all decked out for trick or treats. VERY cool, David. 

MARK CUBAN is the keynote speaker at NATPE 2013 in Miami coming up this January. Mark is a dynamo on a podium, so that’s another plus about NATPE.

Take note – if you break away from extended NBC Nightly News to run one of your syndicated shows, you can NOT say that news is your stations #1 priority.

It’s a promotion and it’s a VERY long distance and it’s exciting and….it’s ERIN MARTIN’S news. She’s trading her title of Promotion Manager at WFTV and WRDQ in Orlando for a promotion to Seattle’s KIRO, where she’ll be Promotion Manager at this CBS affil. It’s all a Cox family move…all stations are owned by them. Ms. Martin is going 2,550 miles across America after 7 years in O-town. The Detroit native is going to fly, along with her dog and cat, for an Oct 25 start date. She’ll be working under CSD MATT LAWS and is thrilled to be joining a great team. She’ll be greatly missed by her Orlando CSD BOB ST CHARLES, but he’s thrilled for her. Besides the extra work in November, Erin is looking forward to exploring the Great Northwest and the gorgeous city, including the local wineries. Note to  Seattle – play up the winery angle in addition to the ownership you have on the coffee situation. Congratulations and Well Dunne! Erin.

Yes, that means there’s an exciting opening in Orlando!

Welcome to Well Dunne! Talent goes out to BILL HARWELL, who calls Austin home. Bill has that friendly ‘guy next door” sound, and he delivers projects so fast, you won’t believe that in real life, he’s a laid back pro. Give Bill a listen and remember him when you need that perfect voice for a project.

Are you keeping up with the fabulous streaming video that NATPE is doing? I was blown away when I “attended” a panel discussion called Stop Whining and Sell Your Show. I was one of 31,000, btw. Now I’m totally hooked on NATPE’s offerings. Next up is a Sept 24 session called Building the World — Multiplatform and Transmedia Storytelling. Check out details here.

You know how cool those LA food trucks are. Well, the latest, greatest is…wait for it…The Bacon Truck!  Follow it on Twitter

Think About This: “If love is an action, how do you express self-love? Self-love starts with having the courage to be who you are, regardless of what others might think. It is about having the courage to live your dreams, to do what makes you happy in life, so that one day you won’t wake up saying, "I wish I had." Self-love is about self-care, making your health a priority. Self-love is revealed in your willingness to stay focused on the things you say are important. It’s about having the courage to set boundaries and protect them.” ~ Francine Ward
