What happens in Vegas does not necessarily STAY in Vegas, contrary to popular belief (and the branding line for the Vegas Tourism folks). For instance, STEVE PATRICK is taking pix at the Station Summit and this is the place to check it out. For instance, here is SHELLY MATTHEWS of WCBD/Charleston and DAN FLAXER of WSAV/Savannah putting their plans together for a fact-based and fun few days.
Meanwhile, while the CSD’s are convicting (my new word or one heard in Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?) a new Marketing Manager is unpacking and acclimating himself to his new city. The man with the new city and title is ROSS LYTLE, Marketing Manage of WSPA and he’s emptying boxes in Spartanburg, SC. Ross is a Texan, hailing from Houston and he’s making his way south from being at WBKN in Youngstown, Ohio. He got his start in North Dakota and is a very impressive writer! Ross, you tear ‘em up and keep in touch. Well Dunne!

Think About This: "But sometimes, unexpectedly, a quiet moment finds us and we drop down into the life we have beneath all the rushing and the trying and the endless daily details, sinking into the fertile soil of the sometimes neglected inner life, where the seeds of remembering what matters are planted. What comes from that place when we give it half a chance flowers in our lives and the world, creating unexpected changes in the direction of our journey and offering unanticipated blessings to us and those around us." ~ Oriah Mountain Dreamer
A promotion is what made this June extra special for ROBBY THOMAS at WNCN in Raleigh, NC. He’s been named Director of Marketing for the Media General NBC affiliate. After arriving in February, Robby’s been hard at work doing the promos and when STEVE PATRICK went to WHEC, Robby got the nod and stepped right into the head slot. Well Dunne! Mr. T.
Speaking of Mr. Patrick, he’s the Well Dunne! Talent blogger at PROMAX Station Summit. When you see him, say ‘cheese’ and we’ll wrangle his thoughts and pix for posting.

What does Albuquerque, New Orleans and London have in common, besides being unique locales on the blue marble? The three cities have (or will be) home to ETHAN EDWARDS, who begins his slot as Assistant Promotion Manager at Hearst’s ABC affil KOAT in New Mexico just in time for the July 4 holiday. Fireworks in the desert sky…excellent. Ethan was born in Portland, Oregon but was raised in Smithfield, VA (home of ham and a super gorgeous Inn). He interned at CBS in London during the Gulf War and his first job in the biz was a nightside assignment editor in Greensboro, NC at WFMY. He’s going to be a big asset to KOAT’s CSD DOUG DONAHOO. And he’ll be missed by CSD BILLY PILGRIM at WDSU down N’Awlins way. Well Dunne! Ethan.

Going to the PROMAX Station Summit next week in Vegas? Then keep your eyes peeled for the Well Dunne! stringer, STEVE PATRICK. Sure, he’s there to learn and to present at the Ellen hoo-ha, but he’s been kind enough to take pictures and send them back for this very blog. Steve is now with WHEC in Rochester, so hunt him down if he doesn’t find you first.
