Let’s start on the far west coast and work our way eastward this week, shall we? Seattle is pretty much the farthest west without leaving what the Alaskans call The Lower 48. And the soon-to-be FOX station currently Tribune (at least as of this writing….things change so very quickly Toto) has a new hire. Say hello to SCOTT KRAGELUND, now aboard Q13/JOE tv/Portland’s CW triopoly. Hmm, are all three going to FOX? Anyway, Scott is a TV guy who calls Spokane home. Yes Spokane home to the Spokane Indians baseball club. Scott has a sheepskin in broadcasting from Washington State U and went to work first as an intern then as a morning news show director at ABC affil KXLY. He loves punching live shows and did so for Q13 before taking a Redmond-WA based tech job as Video Production Manager. Like a lot of the tech companies, it shone brightly before losing sparkle and now, he’s using all the great experience to return to his old Seattle stomping grounds as their Creative Services Writer Producer. He gets to call SYD RUBIN boss and they all work and play well with former promo pro now GM PAM PEARSON and Marketing Honcho BRENT AYRES. Well Dunne! Scott!

Death is a part of life. We all know that. But when someone dies…the feelings we experience are as different as our fingerprints – all the same but all different. In the last few days, the Pearly Gates have swung wide open, as my cousin used to say. On Monday, the lovely SYDNEY RUBIN lost her dad, who passed away in Florida. Ms. Syd has been flying from Seattle, where she works for Tribune’s Q13, to south Florida to do her best to sort out all the is involved with aging parents. Kudos to the fine folks at Tribune (yes, talking about you GM PAM PEARSON and CSD BRENT AYRES) for being supportive and understanding. Please include Syd, her mom and sister and her father in your thoughts.

Seattle calling…with news that a local Washingtonian has taken the Director of Marketing and Creative Services slot at Tribune’s Q13/Fox, JOEtv and Portland’s CW. Welcome back – yes, he was at the station once before – BRENT AYRES. Brent was down in the Bay area of Cali where he was Sr. Manager of On-Air Promo for NBCU at CSN Bay area and CSN Cali. His creative is known to the good folks in Seattle because he was there in the promo department a few years ago. The Western Washington U grad started his TV career at KOMO working on a talk show. Well Dunne! Brent. His GM/boss PAM PEARSON has a background in TV creative, btw, so her choice is a real plus for his talent.
