“I’m leaving paradise.” STAN MELTON JR sure knows how to perk up a person’s ears – starting a phone call with a very good promo line. The paradise of which he speaks is San Diego and his slot as Creative Services Director of Scripps’ KGTV, the ABC affiliate in a market with the beach, mountains, desert, perfect weather, foreign access and La Jolla, among other things. What would lure Stan away from such perfection? The call of home and the desire to make his family happy. Contrary to what Tom Wolfe has to say, Stan et familia are going home to Washington DC. Not just to their city home, but Stan is going to be Creative Services Director at WJLA. Yes, he had that job at one time. Wonder if they kept the business card template. He’ll be working with Promo Manager BONNIE WOOD as well as a few new creative faces. Stan’s son is growing up fast and all his friends as well as extended family will be welcoming the Meltons. He sounded happy about DC but hates leaving the station and the beach. Yes, his house on the beach is up for grabs, as is his old job. A great big Well Dunne! for the uber-creative and ever charming Stan.

When in search of a promo producer, there’s a lot of talent to be found in news editing bays in your very own newsrooms. PHIL KRAFT, who is crafting promo gold for KGTV under CSD STAN MELTON JR in San Diego is one such former news editor. RANDAL GAGE, CSD for Hearst’s ABC affil, KOCO, in Oklahoma City took the same clever route to solve his open producer slot and has brought JESSICA CHALKER out of the WFAA Dallas news editing booths to his operation. Jessica is a grad of North Texas in Denton, which is conveniently on I-35 north from Dallas to OKC. She’s worked at several I-35 markets, like Austin and Waco where she was a photog and editor. Excellent news all round. Well Dunne! Jessica.

Down Tampa way comes word from a fave, LARRY DOYLE. He’s wrangling the creative at Gannett’s CBS affil in St. Petersburg (across from the dog track…location deluxe imo). Larry has tapped DAN TROTTER to be the 10 News Social Media Manager. Dan transitions over from the News Department. Bet he loves the creative side even more. According to Larry, Mr. Dan does a fantastic job! Well Dunne! Dan.
