A long, long time ago, there was a TV series called Ben Casey. Every week, it began with the symbols and the VO intoning ‘Man, Woman, Birth, Death, Infinity’. Today seemed like a Ben Casey Day.
While dealing with a cancer diagnosis, FORREST CARR used his humor to blog about the pain, progress and daily grind of the disease, bringing the reader from laughter to tears with the turn of a phrase. He was a News Director who became an author. He loved sharing his opinions, outlooks, and ideas. Sadly, Forrest left us today, cancer taking yet another talent. Those who read his work or worked with him have all said he will be greatly missed.
SHAD SELBY, who has done TV promo work in Sacramento, has a new little boy so fresh, he still has that adorable little blue hat on. The yet-to-be-named bundle of joy had a rough entry, but after the medicos checked him out in all possible ways, while mom and dad were on pins and needles, the Good To Go words were uttered and, as if on cue from an angel, outside the NICU a rainbow appeared. Well Dunne! Selby fam…all our good thoughts are coming to you.
Down in San Diego, former promo pro RONN KILBY is wrangling the creative video kids for a Boot Camp for video production pros. Check out the details and get yourself going to rake in an early bird discount. Well Dunne! Ronn

Enthusiasm is such a powerful state of mind and behavior. I hear that enthusiasm is running over in the new writer producer at CBS’ KOVR in Cali Capital Sacramento. Coming onboard the creative team headed by CSD DREW FOWLER is SHAD SELBY (great name btw) who is making the transition from an ad agency environment to the station-side. Shad, who hates to admit it but his first name is the name of a fish, hails from Pasadena, Santa Barbara and Lake Tahoe. Three fave locales. He was Creative Director at Astone/Crocker/Flanagan and was producer and director for all the TV and radio spots at the Sacto agency. He’s in good hands…when I talked with him, he was getting writing tips from Promotion Manager DON SMITH. Great station you have there, Shad. Well Dunne!
Hurray for JOHN MILLER of NBC and his new slot. Read about what the NYTimes has to say about it all. Well Dunne! Well Dunne!
Oops…for quite some time now, I’ve listed a CSD open slot at WDSU down in New Orleans. Not true. And it was definitely not what the REAL CSD wanted to see at all. No kidding. Our most sincere apologies to BILLY PILGRIM, who is heading the creative efforts at Hearst-owned NBC affil in the Crescent City. Seems the confusion stemmed from a old web page listing the opening, and WD!TB checks open jobs via the web. Billy, I’ll buy the Hurricane next time I’m in town.
Happy belated birthday to WTVD’s CURTIS MILES! You never look any older. How do you do that?
