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!

And in this corner…northwest major market…hailing from Roseburg, Oregan and on her way up the ladder is – ding ding ding – NANCY MacDONALD. Could you picture the referee and feel the boxing concept there? Read it again and see if you do. OK, good. Nancy is the recently promoted News Brand Manager at currently-Tribune’s FOX affil Q13 in Seattle. She had been Creative Services Coordinator but got the bump in the last few weeks. Yeah, during the February book, so that means she was swimming in deep water off the bat. The lovely lady started out in TV as the Creative Services Production Assistant at KPIC in the afore-mentioned Roseburg. She confides that she doesn’t own a dog or cat, but has a Godzilla action figure on her desk. Alright alright alright! Did we mention she works with the amazing SYD RUBIN who wrangles News promotion there at KCPQ? Well Dunne! Nancy.
