‘The Hat’ is back. If you got that email and work at CBS’ KOVR in Sacramento, then you know it’s the way the station welcomed back PAUL KRAMER, now Promotion Manager under CSD DON SMITH. Paul wrote and produced at KOVR before heading across town to be Creative Services Production Manager at FOX affil KTXL. The San Francisco State University grad also worked at American Zoetrope – yep the Coppola and Lucas film studio. What did he do there in his seven years? He did just about everything. And how did he get the moniker ‘The Hat’? By wearing the same one. Easy question. A big Well Dunne to you Paul.
Abilene, Texas is just down the Interstate from Sweetwater, home of the big rattlesnake roundup. Yeah, not on the Bucket List, but interesting nonetheless. When the brave and bold KAREN YARBROUGH (KTAB’s Creative leader) showed up at said event, just this last Friday, she showed more chutzpah than anyone else I know in TV when she skinned a rattlesnake…yes, she really skilled a rattlesnake. Perhaps a belt or the start of a great purse? Amazingly Well Dunne! Karen.

It was a red letter Thursday for JAY YOVANOVICH. He’s been named Promotion Manager at WRAL in the Raleigh-Durham market. Yep, THE WRAL.

Jay.

Think About This: "This is the first step toward understanding the process of real, lasting change: simply knowing with certainty that you can do whatever you need to do. This understanding has a dual edge: On the one hand it increases your confidence and dignity. On the other hand, it places full responsibility on you if you fail to make the change you set out to make. But this is a good thing, not a guilt trip." ~ Bo Lozoff
