As wonderful and fun and important marketing entertainment and news is….there’s a lot to be said for using those skills and talents in other areas. Areas where human needs might be served in a more basic way. When PAUL MONTGOMERY left heading up the creative at Indianapolis’ ABC affil WRTV, and the opportunity field was wide open, he was drawn to an Indy based concern. Christel House International stood out and after doing some freelance work for them, he was just named Director of Marketing, Public Relations and Content Management. Paul’s a Ball State grad who began his TV journey at CNN and then worked his way through all the promo slots at WRTV. Always did great work. Know he will help them immensely on their mission to lift children out of poverty. A heartfelt Well Dunne! Paul.

Total fave BONNIE BARLAY has a Shout Out, so listen up: “Working with PAUL MONTGOMERY and SETH KEEVER at RTV6 in Indianapolis was a tremendous opportunity. Those two are such pros and always have a positive get-it-done attitude. Also love working with E.W. Scripps Company, where I spent quite a few years myself."

Think About This: Even a dollar given to the earthquake relief effort makes a difference. You live a very sweet life if you’re reading this…you have a computer, electricity, food, shelter….you are considered very rich by the mass majority of people on the planet. You have a few extra dollars. Bypass your Starbucks and instead do something that will start your day better than any coffee could. “There for the grace of God go I”

Moving one’s career ahead is such an exciting endeavour. Yes, everyone everyday moves their career along, taking steps both big and small just by keeping the lights on. Certain forward progress is noted with new cities, new duties, new titles. One young lady moving ahead is now the Assistant Creative Services Director for CSD PAUL MONTGOMERY at Scripps’ ABC affil WRTV in Indianapolis. LINDSAY BLEDSOE is the lady in question and she’s making the move from Indy’s WXIN where she handled topicals. Ms. Lindsay has worked doing promos at WTMJ in Milwaukee and is an Indiana girl, born there and holding a sheepskin from Valpariso U. No doubt we’ll be seeing great things from her. She started Monday and from the sounds of it, will be working days not nights. Well Dunne! Lindsay.
