It was a beautiful day in Indianapolis on Wednesday. A balmy 68 even with a cloud cover. Such was the weather for CLYDE BECKER, who is starting his third week as Creative Services Director at WTHR, the Dispatch NBC affiliate in the Hoosier State capital. He’s making the move east from Albuquerque, where he was heading up on-air promotions at Reelz Channel. Lots of you know him from his days at KDVR in Denver. So glad to hear all is well. A big Well Dunne! to you Clyde.
Can you really resist reading What Business Can Learn from Organized Crime? From the Harvard Business Journal no less.
You need to know about Kickstarter. Shout out to KOB’s VINCE GARPARICH who told me about this a while ago.
Think About This “It is for us to pray not for tasks equal to our powers, but for powers equal to our tasks, to go forward with a great desire forever beating at the door of our hearts as we travel toward our distant goal." ~ Helen Keller
Just beingwithin driving distance of family is a major perk that lots of you share as one of the reasons you move to another market for a promo job. Such is the case with KEVIN OLMSTEAD, who has traded Louisville, Kentucky for Albuquerque, New Mexico. He’s the new writer producer at Hubbard’s KOB TV, NBC in The Duke City. ($5 Starbucks card to the person who can tell me how that nickname came about…no fair Googling). A native of El Paso, he’s now just a little ways up I-25 from his hometown. While in L’ville, he was at FOX 41. CSD VINCE GASPARICH is thrilled to have him on board. Well Dunne! Kevin.
