Ready to take on a great new job as well as the daunting traffic in Atlanta is RICK SNYDER who is the new VP of Creative for Fox O&O WAGA. Isn’t that JEFF ZELLMER’s slot you ask? Well it was, but Jeff has gotten a promotion to handle regional creative management duties, so that led to Rick’s focus of WAGA itself. Very cool…growth in a time of no-so-much. Mr. S is vacating his Director of Creative Services role at ABC affil WKRN in Nashville. The Elon University grad has a long track record working with FOX. For instance, he got his first TV station job producing promos and doing graphics for Fox affil WGHP in High Point (home of furniture) and then graduated to VP of Creative for WBRC in Birmingham. Again Fox. Then down in the Big Orlando, he repeated the VP Creative role for WOFL. He tore things up in a great way as VP for Speed Channel in Charlotte. So there ya have it…he’s the ideal candidate for Atlanta. See ya Rick before 2019 dawns. Everybody, a big and hearty Well Dunne! Rick.

Looks like Hurricane Florence is headed to the coast of NC and SC and VA. Best hurricane tip shared by a lifelong hurricane alley resident is this: Fill zip lock bags with good water and throw in freezer. They will keep foods cool when electricity goes away and can be used as drinking water after they melt. You’re welcome.

It’s mercury retrograde which means it’s a time of redoing, rethinking, and returning if you put store in the stars and their influence on our earthly doings. As if on cue (see how that happens – the universe knows!) WKRN CSD RICK SNYDER shares that his new Topical Producer, ERIC PERRY, is a station returnee. Eric worked at WKRN as a news photog a while ago and is now tackling the perfect transition to marketing by doing topicals. Excellent. (Did you say that to yourself like Keanu Reeves would say it? Yeah, you did…) Eric is a Western Kentucky U grad who studied broadcasting and production and got his start in TV at WKYU in Bowling Green before becoming a news shooter in Nashville. He’s also been a Video Production Coordinator at Thrive Creations where he honed his creative working with clients. Rick is a great boss and the Nashville ABC affil is already lovin’ Eric. Well Dunne!

The glam and excitement of Las Vegas has another devotee – WILLIE GARRETT. Mr. G is heading west to Vegas to head up the NBC affil in Sin City, namely KSNV. Come the end of November, Willie will depart Omaha, where he’s been wrangling creative for Journal’s KMTV, the CBS affil, for the last few years. Omaha has a ton of fabulous qualities as well as Warren Buffet, who lives in the Big O fulltime. No doubt Omaha banks are thrilled. But as great as Omaha is, The Strip and all it encompasses is another matter. Willie has a great track record that includes WGBA in Green Bay, WDJT in Milwaukee and WSNB in Lincoln. No stranger to Vegas, Willie worked at Journal’s KTNV, so he’ll know his way around. A big Well Dunne! Willie.
Condolences to promo pro RICK SNYDER, whose father passed away this weekend. It’s been a very difficult time for so many of us, losing loved ones at a fast clip. Prayers and good thoughts to Rick.

Boy, things are heating up in Houston, and it’s not just the weather. We’ve already spilled the story about KELLY LAMBERT heading to NBC affil KPRC as Brand Manager. Now we’re adding MICHAEL PENIX as Promotion Manager at the Post Newsweek station. It’s a homecoming for Michael, who was doing promo producing across town for TOM ASH over at ABC’s KTRK. That was before he went to Columbia, South Carolina where he headed up the creative department for Gannett’s WLTX in SC’s capital. Other stops along the way for the University of Oklahoma grad include KFOR in OKC and KTUL in Tulsa, his hometown. He should get to know Tulsa native and Well Dunne! Talent voice MARK DRISCOLL. A big Well Dunne! Michael.
Thought your Monday was not up to snuff? Try being RICK SNYDER over at the Speed Channel. Let’s just say it isn’t often one gets to say your week began with a naked man breaking into your offices. Details here.
Speaking of not being up to snuff…GoDaddy had to be taken to the woodshed for their problems with something about advanced hosting of the Well Dunne! Talent site. Thank heavens for the best IT person ever, BRANDON ANJELENO. He nearly had the phone growing out of his ear – that’s how long he had them on the phone to finally get it straightened away. Hugs and Well Dunne! Brandon. GoDaddy – not so much.
