The road from Austin to Houston is one every UT student knows like the back of their hand.  In the spring it’s lined with bluebonnets…in the fall it’s crowded with avid Longhorn fans. Along the way you pass through Blue Bell Ice Cream’s Brenham. Must check to see if they upgraded the route, but it was a lovely trip. Making the Austin to Houston drive will be NATALIA EGAN, who is trading in her slot as Marketing Director of NBC affil KXAN in the Texas capital for the CSD slot at Graham Media’s KPRC, NBC. Natalia will be the newest member in the newest building…they just rebuilt KPRC and they will have only been in for about 2 months when she arrives June 5. Wanna bet they’ll still have boxes in closets? The Hartford, CT lady, who was born in Mexico City and is bilingual, got her start at WVIT and has been at KXAN for several promotions. Let’s hear it for Natalie…a Texas-sized Well Dunne!

If you read this on Thursday, May 25, don’t miss out on NBC’s Red Nose Day, a project from the most wonderful RICHARD CURTIS and Walgreen’s which follows up on the fabulous characters from my favorite movie, Love Actually. Open your wallets and your hearts – help put a dent in child poverty (God knows we need to all pitch in together now more than ever).  It will be a lark! Dibs on Bill Nighy. Well Dunne Walgreens, Richard and NBC!

One little word means a lot. Especially when the word involves a job title (and compensation to reflect the ever more exciting little word in that title one would expect). NBC’s SCOTT CHASTAIN, a proud Aggie (see Texas references) has a new word in his title: Executive as in Executive Vice President Affiliate Marketing and Development.  Heretofore he had been Sr. VP. Scott’s a hardworking guy who most everybody knows…well deserving to the max. Yes, he’s the same Sott Chastain who is PROMAXbda co-chair. So in chorus let’s send him a major Well Dunne!

JOHN MILLER has long been known to be a marketing leader, a man from whose brain (along with VINCE MANZE) sprang “Must See TV”, the sparkling and effective campaign done when he was EVP of Advertising for NBC. For the last several years, since 2011, John’s headed up the NBC Sports Agency as CMO. He’s now gotten a new and exciting title within the NBC family – CMO of NBC’s Olympics. Add to that being head of the NBCU Marketing Council and John’s exhibiting his talents and leadership in wonderful ways. He’s well deserving of all good things that come his way.
