Adorable RILEY SEXTON got a promotion. Tacos and margaritas all round. Riley is now Director of Affiliate Relations for Fox Broadcasting, so all you Fox folks are no doubt working with her now. She’s advanced in the Affil Relations department – Woohoo. She has station-side stripes from her promo days at KMSP in Minneapolis. She did an internship at Fox in San Diego and is a proud SMU Mustang. Well Dunne! Riley.
Any of you in the vicinity of Greenville,Delaware? That means you Philly people. Well Dunne! Talent’s TOM RICHARDS, who is an amazing musician, is going to perform Friday from 5 to 8 at Brew HaHa! which is worth the trip just to say you were there. Go for it Tom!
As if cancer isn’t enough, losing one’s hair while overcoming it is a kick in the shorts. Thank heavens for wigs. Alas, the good ones (even the not so good ones) are pricey. That’s when Cristal Schanes, who has Emmys and has been a hair stylist for SNL, Jimmy Fallon’s show and Spiderman 3 stepped up and decided that 20% of her products will go to a WIGwell Initiative which provides free custom wigs to women dealing with medical hair loss. Nice. So many good people doing good things.

The Lion King explains it all. It’s a circle of life. Back in the early days of TV, Ben Casey started with a simple chalkboard graphic of man, woman, birth, death, infinity. That’s it. All the rest are details. All the changes, the heartbreak, the love and tears…all the saying goodbye and saying hello, starting fresh and going into pre-programmed mode. It’s all the circle of life. This blog (someone get a new name puhLEASE) is about that, and you need to know that you are thanked, valued and even cherished for any time and or attention spent here.
Now a few quick catch-ups: Well Dunne! to RILEY SEXTON who traded her Manager, Platform and Affiliate Marketing slot for Associate Director of Affiliate Marketing for Fox Broadcasting Company in LA. The SMU grad did some great stuff for KMSP in Minneapolis before heading west.
Condolences to Well Dunne! Talent’s DENA YASNER and her significant other LOREN. Loren’s mother passed this week. Loren is the kind of son we all hope our sons will be.
GM CURTIS MILES at WAOW in Wausau has a new CSD, namely KRISTI SCHREIBER, a native Wausan (is that correct…Wausan?) who is totally slammed with the new job. But Well Dunne! Kristi.
Think About This: “Be kind and merciful. Let no one ever come to you without leaving better
and happier. Be a loving expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting. To children, to the poor, to all who suffer and are lonely, give always a happy smile. Give them not only your care, but your heart.” ~ Mother Teresa of Calcutta
