Heading to a new job and much better weather is one of the best around, J.R. VANWASSENHOVE. Unashamedly a favorite. He’s taking the Promo Manager slot at Graham Media’s WKMG, the CBS station in Orlando. Extra bonus points for those who know that WKMG stands for Katherine M Graham, the female media exec who really knew what leadership meant. She was amazing. If you don’t know about her…google it. Better, read a book about her or, if needs must, watch The Post and marvel at how much Meryl Streep looks like her. Back to our man J.R. who left a sweet slot at one of the best TV shops around, WBNS in Columbus. He had a great boss (talking to you LARRY WATZMAN) so why did J.R. leave? To take care of his dad who fought a very brave, very long cancer battle. As a matter of fact, J.R. has made several decisions based on family needs…and that makes him what Midwesterners call ‘good people.’ J.R. is one of those amazing Full Sail creative who has put the magic in work for Fox Sports South, WXIA in Atlanta, and WLWT in Cincinnati. WKMG CSD KYM PEOPLES has gotten tres lucky and all good things are going to happen. Shout out to HR person deluxe DONNA ANSLEY. BTW, J.R., the Big O has grown like mad since you were last Winter Parking but you’ll know your basic way around.. . Well Dunne! J.R.

Think About This: “Teach them the quiet words of kindness, to live beyond themselves. Urge them toward excellence, drive them toward gentleness, pull them deep into yourself, pull them upward toward manhood, but softly like an angel arranging clouds. Let your spirit move through them softly.” ~ Pat Conroy, Prince of Tides

Think About This: “It is now highly feasible to take care of everybody on earth at a higher standard of living than any have ever known. It no longer has to be you or me. Selfishness is unnecessary. War is obsolete. It is a matter of converting the high technology from weaponry to livingry.” ~ Buckminster Fuller
