What do you say about a talented protégé whose work you’ve admired for many years…when that person announces they are retiring. How can that be? Retiring? Yes, it’s true…retiring. Using the “R” word is JIM ROTHSCHILD, currently Station Manager of legendary WRAL in Raleigh. Jim is a St. Louis man who has two stations on his resume: KMOX (now KMOV) and WRAL. That, my friends, is what is known as totally solid. Perhaps there’s a short stint at KTVI in St. Louis, but that’s just foggy memory. Hearing he’s retiring is dispiriting. Some people are like Atticus Finch…they’re always there. Jim is following the lead of current WRAL GM STEVE HAMMEL, who is handing in his GM biz cards and using the “R” word himself. April is when Jim steps away. Between the two men there is approximately 80-plus years of experience. Be impressed. There aren’t cap letters or colors to indicate how sincere and deep this is: Well Dunne! Jim.

Think About This:  “Despite what you may believe, you can disappoint people and still be good enough. You can make mistakes and still be capable and talented. You can let people down and still be worthwhile and deserving of love. Everyone has disappointed someone they care about. Everyone messes up, lets people down, and makes mistakes. Not because we’re inadequate or fundamentally inept, but because we’re imperfect and fundamentally human. Expecting anything different is setting yourself up for failure.”  ~  Daniell Koeke

Last week in Raleigh, the WRAL TV family were on hand when a brand new US citizen was sworn in. SHAN ZHONG, the Lead Designer at the Capital Broadcasting operation, was born in China…Nanjing to be precise. He came to the states to be an art student and decided the US was the place for him. After earning his Masters Degree in Computer Arts from Memphis College of Art, he quickly became a paperwork expert in order to stay stateside. That was 15 years ago. It all came together when he passed his citizenship test and was sworn in. And yes, I bet those of us born here would have a struggle with those 100 questions about our country. Shan has worked at WMC in Memphis before CSD SHELLY LESLIE grabbed him and she couldn’t be happier. Looks like a very happy group that Shan works with. On hand were WRALers BILL BURCH, STEVE LOYD, RANDY MEWS, STACIE HOLYFIELD, JAY YOVANOVICH, DEBBIE TULLOS, STEVE HAMMEL, Shan and Shelly.  Well Dunne! Shan.

Now, off to the very opposite side of the country – Oregon. L SCOTT WELLS is very excited about his new slot as Sr. Writer Producer at KEZI in Eugene. It’s the Chambers ABC affil in Eugene, home of U of Oregon which no doubt makes it a very fun place to live. Mr. W has been in the Portland market for years, and will still be close to family. It’s a win-win situation. Everybody is happy. LOVE that. Well Dunne!

A day late but still sincere – birthday wishes for Well Dunne! Talent’s CHUCK MATTHEWS. Have you given Chuck a listen? Just click on this name and then click on his demo. Yeah, he’s got a very good voice and you should consider him for your next choice.

Blogging the Super Bowl commercials from promo pros. Yep, that’s what is on the table. Gonna be fun. Sure do want one of the Invitees, but there’s a strong chance she’ll be at the game. How cool is that. Let me know if you’re interested!
