It’s so exciting when you spot talent when they just begin a career…then watch when they grow and hone that talent. It’s like watching a gorgeous flower bloom. Then when something great happens to them, its even more thrilling than normal. Let’s point to one up and coming talent named JENNY DOLPH, who TERRY KOWALSKI discovered when the two of the were doing that promo thing in South Bend Indiana. Not that she was a newbie…Ms. Jenny had gotten a degree from Purdue and had done production and promo and web editing at such places as WLFI, WSJV and Gray Interactive. She calls herself a ‘Jen of all trades’. When Jenny stepped up to Pittsburgh as News Brand Producer for WTAE in Steel Town, she was doing super work. CSD TRACY ACCORD OLIVER was a super boss, and Jenny hates saying goodbye, but she’s off to Columbus, Ohio to work for LARRY WATZMAN at WBNS. Love watching this flower bloom! Well Dunne! Jenny. She starts Dec12, beating Santa to the holiday punch.

Lovely to see ANNIE ROHRS get promoted. She’s now Director Public Relations at CBS Interactive, upped from her role as Sr. Manager. She’s done communications for NFL and Yahoo as well. Well Dunne! Annie.

Producers are harder and harder to find. So when one has need to replace a Producer, it’s always good news when the difficult task falls into place quickly. It did for LAUREN RIDGLEY, CSD at Hearst’s ABC affil WISN in Milwaukee. She lucked out and has replaced JON HELM (who moved to Hearst’s WTAE in Pittsburgh as #2 to CSD TRACY ACCORD OLIVER – you read about it here) with someone who is already sitting at his new desk. Producer DAN COAD is a Midwestener, hailing from Rockford, IL originally. He comes to WISN from Scripps/Journal’s WTMJ in the same market. At WTMJ., he was involved in a variety of projects, promo and commercial production. Dan has been into TV promo since his days in college at Illinois State. There, he was Creative Services Manager for the school’s TV-10 News…a title they created for him and woke up to the importance of marketing. Good idea TV-10. Dan also worked in his hometown at Gray’s CBS affil WFIR. Let’s start spring out with an enthusiastic Well Dunne! Dan.

Something to ponder. Phoned a media outlet in London and was treated with such intelligent warmth and friendliness, they garnered a ‘fan for life’ as well as a receptive business partner. Happened not once but several times with UK and Irish outlets. How long has it been since you could say the same for a media call on this side of the Atlantic?
