When a CSD promotes a producer with the words “greatly deserved’, it’s a doubly good thing. Good for the person getting the promotion and good for the CSD (and company) for nurturing talent. While they might not be able to read this because of the horrific ice storm forecast for their market, the good folks at Scripps in Kansas City have promoted ROBERT HESS ll to Promo Manager of NBC affil KSHB and independent KMCI.  He’s been a Senior Producer for CD RANDY THURMAN, and obviously did a fantastic job. Bob, as he is known, is a grad of the University of Nebraska at Omaha and has a Masters in Communication fro University of Central Missouri.  He started in promo over at WDAF in KC where he was also a shooter and an MMJ, so he knows the news side of the coin. Great big Well Dunne! Mr. Hess.


If you aren’t a fan of RAY RICHMOND’s writing, then a suspicious eye is cast upon you. Ray is great – knows the biz and has written for Variety and The Hollywood Reporter and he’s funny and on target…yes, this is a fan talking. While you read this, if you’re in the LA area, open your scheduler and go to January 16. Now for 7:30 pm, put free reading at Lounge Theatre on Santa Monica of Transition, Ray’s play about the meeting between Obama and Trump. It’s going to run for 5 weeks starting in March, but this reading is free and I bet hilarious. Do it. Be the first. NBCU’s JORDANA HOUCHINS is gonna be there.

Week number two is being very good to NYASHA SINCLAIR, the Sr. Promotions Producer at WTTG/WDCA, the Fox/MyTV duop in DC. She’s working for the very talented MIKE HENRY. Ms. Nyasha is a firecracker and so much fun, and I hear she’s a very savvy marketing talent, too. Hailing from Queens, Nyasha’s first intro to TV was at MTV. What a cool way to kick off a career. She comes over to FOX from writing and producing in the promo department at TV One in Silver Spring. Big Well Dunne! Nyasha.

Let’s find ways to support media folks who are reinventing themselves. Take RAY RICHMOND for example. Ray is a fabulous LA-based writer who you might have read in Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, on Nikki Finke’s Deadline site and he was the LA Daily News TV Critic. What clever way can Ray take that writing and turn it into house payments? By doing fortune cookies, of course. Fun, original and even personalized fortune cookies. Check it out and make your friends happy at the same time. http://www.smartestcookies.com/

Think About This:  “As little children, we are completely authentic. We never pretend to be what we are not. Our tendency is to play and explore, to live in the moment, to enjoy life. Nobody teaches us to be that way; we are born that way. This is our true nature before we learn to speak.  ~ Don Miguel Ruiz
