Hitting Sarasota Sunday – tornadoes. Starting at Sarasota’s WWSB Monday – GAYLE BEATTY. No need to guess what major story will be the focus of her first day’s promo efforts. Ms. Gayle is heading up the marketing for the Calkins-owned ABC in one of America’s most gorgeous cities. Yes, despite the tornado problem, which is extremely rare, Sarasota sits on the Gulf of Mexico and reminds one of Monte Carlo. After a stint as Promo Manager for Scripps’ WFTS, ABC in Tampa-St Pete, Gayle is taking the Sunshine Skyway south, maintaining her desire to keep palm trees in her life. The Benton Illinois native has a degree from SIU Carbondale and her first ‘real’ TV job was at KSNW in Wichita. She headed south to Houston after that, working and producing at KHOU, KHBW, and KIAH.  Gayle is creative and persistent. Excellent. A very well deserved Well Dunne! Ms. Beatty.

Viva Jose! From the Creative suite to the Executive suite…it’s a wonderful journey. One that JOSE SUAREZ is on. He’s the newly named General Manager of KDVA, Telemundo in San Antonio. He’s coming over from Miami where he’s been Director of Creative Services and Programming for WTVJ, the network-owned NBC station in The Magic City. He’s no stranger to Texas, having worked in San Angelo at KSAN. Along the way, he’s honed his TV knowledge and skills at WSFL and WFOR in Miami, WUPW in Toledo and as Director of Digital Programs for the Telemundo Station Group. Well Dunne! Jose. Just in time to get ready for Fiesta!

Mistake that needs fixing – KSTP is looking for a CSD. Not what was posted. Sorry for that. Here’s the link. http://kstp.com/jobs/

Telemundo has named a new VP of Marketing for their network. MARIA ISABEL FIGUEORA will take the Miami-based job, coming over from VP of Marketing for Sony Pictures Latin America and Brazil. The University of Michigan grad has also been part of the Yahoo! marketing efforts. A bright and happy Well Dunne! Maria.


Creativity is when someone puts a whole new spin on something that we’ve all seen before. For instance, think about color combinations. Yellow plus Blue equals Green. But the folks at STEPHEN ARNOLD Music have taken this fundamental art fact and turned it into a stunning clear vinyl LP, full of their music, and it’s a sight to see.  Named ‘What’s Printed Here’, it’s a limited production item, but you should check it out as best you can. Kudos to Dallas’ Rucker & Co for their artistic contribution.


Oops…ERIK CANDIANI isn’t starting in Oakland at KTVU on November 12. Turns out his first date in the office there will be November 30. Everybody stand down and enjoy November and Thanksgiving.
