Getting a bump up the management ladder…let’s hear it for the lovely RONDA WHITE, whose title and responsibilities are now under the Marketing Director banner at the CBS and indie duop in Phoenix, KPHO and KTVK. She comes to the ‘corner office’ by working and learning about TV at the one and only WFAA in Dallas. She’s an Oklahoma Sooner who knows how to wrangle a brand and brand stations. She spent time at her competition KPNX as Brand Manager before following BLANCA ESPARZA PAPP, who recently got upped to Station Manager at Meredith’s operation. Very Well Dunne! Ronda!

Between haboobs, which are dust storms for those who thought otherwise, there was some great news out of the one and only Phoenix. RONDA WHITE took a new route to work, got new business cards, a new office and a new job with a new station, dust be day-umed. Always so much fun to write about Texans. She’s a Dallas lady who lived in Richardson and got her degree from Oklahoma U (how did she survive TU-OU weekend?). She rose through the ranks at WFAA, smartly choosing the promo department and before heading west she was Promotion Director down on Young St. Taking I-20 west she joined KPNX as Executive Producer – Social Media and was named Brand Manager for the NBC affil owned by Tegna. She’s been at Meredith’s KPHO and KTVK a few months and sounds like she’s not letting any haboobs dim her smile. Well Dunne! Ronda.

Think About This: “There’s a trick to the ‘graceful exit.’ It begins with the vision to recognize when a job, a life stage, or a relationship is over — and let it go. It means leaving what’s over without denying its validity or its past importance to our lives. It involves a sense of future, a belief that every exit line is an entry, that we are moving up, rather than out.” ~ Ellen Goodman
