TONY PIERCE isn’t in Kansas anymore. He went to college there…at Washburn where he studied Marketing. He worked in Kansas as Production Manager – twice – first at Topeka’s WIBW then at KTMJ. He was Promotion Manager at Scripps’ KSHB in Kansas City. But now he’s moved to Florida heading up his first Creative Services Director job at Scripps’ WFTX, FOX in Ft. Myers. Trading sunflowers for palm trees. Most gorgeous market for a very busy guy. Well Dunne! Tony.
More good news, which the people affected by the recent tornadoes in the southeast are going to love. You know about WDAM’s Pine Belt Strong telethon, which also had a big hand from Jackson, Mississippi’s WLBT, Biloxi’s WLOX and Memphis’ WMC. Another Raycom station, WALB in Albany, GA held a one day phone bank that raised more than $202,000. Called Rise Up for Recovery – Give for South Georgia Tornado Relief. The telethon is ongoing…which means you can go online and continue to donate. CSD JIM BERNHARDT of WALB says it all goes to the Red Cross to help get people back on their feet. Bravo and Well Dunne! to all the hard work that helped raise $585,000 so far!

Joining the ranks of Manager as well as The Promoted, we have TONY PIERCE, now Promotion Manager of Scripps’ KSHB in Kansas City. Tony has been turning out creative gems for the NBC affiliate as part of CSD RANDY THURMAN’s team for the past three years. Before that, the Washburn U grad (marketing) became a whiz at production, serving as Production Manager of Dimension X Designs in KC. In Topeka, he hit a hatrick of Production Manager slots at Fox affil KTMJ, CBS affil WIBW and NBC affil KSNT. The aforementioned Randy was most enthusiastic about Tony, which is like putting gold stars on his chart. Well Dunne! Tony.
Who is Bob Liodice? He’s President and CEO of the Association of National Advertisers, who got together in Dana Point, CA recently. And he stated that Marketers might be getting too caught up in chasing the latest technological innovations instead of focusing on the core purpose of brand building. Well Bob, come sit next to me.

TONY PIERCE is the newest member of the KSHB creative team. He’s a preditor who isn’t all that nuts over the word, but loves his work. Throwing his skills and background into producing and editing, Tony has moved over from the Production Department at the NBC affil in Kansas City and has been doing that creative thing since the first of March. A Topeka Kansas native, it was his wife who brought him to KC after he worked at FOX in the Kansas capital. He’s lovin’ KC. Well Dunne! Tony!
Interesting change. Sleuth, the detective/crime cable net owned by NBCU is changing their name to Cloo TV. One would think Slooth might have been another choice. Of course, owning the name Cloo must make somebody proud if not a VP.
Every worry about getting your laptop or phone lifted? Cute article about how high tech is making that highly impossible.
