Death is a part of life. We all know that. But when someone dies…the feelings we experience are as different as our fingerprints – all the same but all different. In the last few days, the Pearly Gates have swung wide open, as my cousin used to say. On Monday, the lovely SYDNEY RUBIN lost her dad, who passed away in Florida. Ms. Syd has been flying from Seattle, where she works for Tribune’s Q13, to south Florida to do her best to sort out all the is involved with aging parents. Kudos to the fine folks at Tribune (yes, talking about you GM PAM PEARSON and CSD BRENT AYRES) for being supportive and understanding. Please include Syd, her mom and sister and her father in your thoughts.

When it comes to living in the most exciting, ideal US markets, KELLY DONNELL wins. Kelly is trading in the temperate seaside beach-y perfect San Diego for the adventuresome, outdoorsy energy of Denver. He’s the new Creative Services Director of Tribune’s KDVR, Fox in the Mile High City. He’s transitioning for Tribune, which is where he was in San Diego – at the Fox affiliate. The Florida Gator by education really has lived and worked in the best cities: Honolulu, New Orleans, Chicago, NYC, San Francisco and Tucson. Come on…those are fabulous places. He’s a lucky man. And a talented one. A great big Rocky Mountain Well Dunne! Kelly
Remember last December when B&C named Cleveland’s MICKI BYRNES the GM of the year? Well, Ms. Micki did it again and nabbed the GM of the year for the Tegna chain. She’s a former promo pro who is obviously one fab leader at WKYC. Does that give any of you big chains any ideas? No? Why the heck not? Yeah, you know who you are…
The gates of heaven have been swinging wide open of late. Word comes via RONN KILBY that voice talent DOUG PAUL has passed away in the Atlanta area. If you want info on the memorial, etc, please let me know. Doug had a one-of-a-kind sound and you have all heard him on the many promos he did for networks across many decades. God bless you, Doug.
And yes, there was no WOMAN WRITING done yesterday. It was a day without…

Adventuresome, confident and adaptable – all hallmarks of those who, as BARRY FITZSIMMONS has dubbed, are Promo Cowboys – those who venture forth, town to town, to do creative work. Unlike some career choices, TV marketing doesn’t offer a career path that generally allows upward mobility without changing locations. But for those who love what they do, jumping into a new market…a new city…learning about different people and yourself at the same time. It’s all exhilarating. SYDNEY RUBIN is about to venture forth and embrace Seattle, where she’ll be News Brand Manager for Tribune’s Fox affil KCPQ. She’ll be working with Director of Marketing and Creative Services, BRETT AYRES as well as GM PAM PIERSON, who has a background in markting. It’s gonna be a lot of fun…and Seattle is going to see some amazing work thanks to Ms. Syd. And yes, she’ll still be available for Topical Boot Camps! It’s all good. And she’s the best. Heartfelt Well Dunne! Syd!
