Human nature, being what it is, finds people and places and even things that are more important, or exciting or treasured than others. It happens. So if this exciting news about ROBERT DWYER being named Marketing Director of WCNC, NBC in Charlotte, sounds a little over the top – just live with it. Mr. D is in the favorite category for several reasons, one being that he graduated from Ferris State in Big Rapids, Michigan. Anybody know that the Bulldogs have an amazing tennis program? Yep, they sure do. Not that Rob was enrolled in the tennis program, since he was focused on TV production. A man with an artistic eye, he ran his own freelance biz after producing and designing for Color Bars, Inc. before going south to Orlando where he honed his art at the WB station, WKCF. The WOFL operation in the Big O is where he spent time doing creative and getting the Promotion Manager slot before taking the Senior Director of Creative Services job at The Golf Channel. He moved north to handle Director of Marketing and Audience Development for Fox affil WHNS in Greenville, SC (the station is right smack dab on I-85) and now he’s off Billy Graham Parkway in the city named after Queen Charlotte. All so very exciting. Yes, there’s more but you get the idea he’s got a plum spot and he’ll shine. Well Dunne! Rob.
New Orleans folks…seems that this weekend might be mighty dicey. Water coming down from the sky, down from up north and up from the Gulf might be a bad combo. Lots of weather and news to cover, but….
Think About This: “Do not be dismayed by the brokenness of the world. All things break. And all things can be mended. Not with time, as they say, but with intention. So go. Love intentionally, extravagantly, unconditionally. The broken world waits in darkness for the light that is you.” ~ L. R. Knost
