Midwesterners are just the best. True…they are. Ran into a fellow Midwesterner who has been promoted to Creative Services Supervisor for Hubbard’s KAAL, the ABC affil in Rochester/Austin, Minnesota. MARY GOULD is doing her creative thing and loving it. A graphics artist at heart, Ms. Mary was Production Supervisor at the station before the bump up. Born in Wisconsin but raised in Chicago, Ms. Mary has lived and worked in Tulsa, Phoenix and St. Louis, where she was at KMOV. Her hubby is a TV photog, so I bet their house is full of great artwork. Well Dunne! Mary.
This is a mouthful – AYAKM. Anybody want to take a stab at what it means? Time is money, so let’s save both and just say that Turner Broadcasting owns this and it stands for Animation, Young Adults and Kids Media (AYAKM) Creative Group. Let me catch my breath… Mentioning it because SUSAN SHIPSKY is their new VP of Production, which is as interesting as that name. Well Dunne! Susan.

Think About This: "Ideals are like stars; you will not succeed in touching them with your hands, but like the seafaring man on the desert of waters, you choose them as your guides, and following them, you reach your destiny." ~ Carl Schurz
