Things are hot in Charlotte at the moment. You have the Panthers ready to take their nearly perfect season to the Super Bowl…and you have a new Promotion Manager and Senior Producer over at Cox’s ABC affil WSOC. TIM RICE is the man with the Promo plan having come out of NBC’s KXAS in DFW where he was Sr. Producer. The Washington State grad, now on the east side of the Mississippi, has worked all over the country so he must have adventure in his blood. From Columbia, SC (so close to Charlotte) to Yakima, Washington, he’s been creative and technical at the same time. Well Dunne! Tim.
Besides being mom to two absolutely adorable little ones, LACY LEVASSSEUR has been promoted to Senior Producer for WSOC. Yes, that’s her in the helicopter on a recent shoot. The Michigan State Spartan learned her craft at KESQ out in Palm Springs and then under the lovely LAUREN RIDGLEY at WISN in Milwaukee. Well Dunne! Lacy.

Despite the fact Dallas/Ft Worth is sitting in the middle of the tornado bull’s-eye, it’s still one of the best places to live. Today’s news comes from there from the one and only GARY WANN, who is the CSD at the NBC affil, KXAS in the Metroplex. He’s gotten some new faces and new titles to share. Already told ya’ll about TIM RICE. Also joining the team is TONY JORDAN who begins May 31 doing Topicals. He’s a national Emmy winner (like Gary himself) and has been at the FOX O&O in Houston.
But wait…there’s more! Getting a promotion to On-Air Promotion Manager is Texas lady KRISTAL MILAZZO, transitioning but still active doing sales projects while she expands her role on the day to day ops and the strategy focus. CARISMA RAMSEY moves from Writer/Producer to Sales Marketing Writer Producer and will be working with STEVE LEMONDS newly named Sales Marketing Photog/Editor. Whew…that’s a lot to report at one time. Well Dunne! Tony, Kristal, Carisma and Steve!

USA Networks don’t want you to just watch their fun shows (admittedly, fan of many here) but also to chatter with others who like them. Why, they’re even throwing in stars and producers sometimes, too. All at one time. Chatter, ya’ll.

TIM RICE has left the capital of South Carolina and has landed in the heart of the Metroplex, the Dallas – Fort Worth market, where he’s been picked up at NBC’s KXAS. VP Marketing and Brand Development GARY WANN hired Tim to be the Senior Writer Producer and Tim will spend most of his time in the Ft. Worth location. While in Columbia, Tim was the Media Operations Manager at Raycom’s FOX affil, WACH. Besides running his own creative shop called Thrice Creative, Tim has also been Marketing Manager at Augusta, Georgia’s WRDW having earned his producer chops at WLTX, WLTV and KTVH. He put in nearly five years as a Director at QVC. The Washington State grad will no doubt love being in Texas and perhaps he will take some of the rain from the East coast to the Lone Star State, which desperately needs some. Well Dunne! Tim.
