JOHN MILLER has long been known to be a marketing leader, a man from whose brain (along with VINCE MANZE) sprang “Must See TV”, the sparkling and effective campaign done when he was EVP of Advertising for NBC. For the last several years, since 2011, John’s headed up the NBC Sports Agency as CMO. He’s now gotten a new and exciting title within the NBC family – CMO of NBC’s Olympics. Add to that being head of the NBCU Marketing Council and John’s exhibiting his talents and leadership in wonderful ways. He’s well deserving of all good things that come his way. John is not retiring and rumors to that effect are just not true. Well Dunne! John. Olympic Gold for you.

Taking John’s place as head of NBC Sports Agency is JENNIFER STORMS. She’ll be making the transition back to entertainment from being SVP of Global Sports Marketing for Pepsi. Jenny has a winning track record from her days prior to Pepsi when she held various marketing positions at Turner in Atlanta where she was SVP of Sports Marketing and Programming. She’s a Northwestern grad who deserves a cheering Well Dunne!

It’s only four blocks, but it’s a new office, new station, new job for ALLAN SNYDER down in Little Rock. He’s been tapped to be the Promotions and Marketing Director of KATV, ABC in Arkansas’ capital. Which is just about four blocks from his former job, CSD at NBC affil KARK. He really knows the market; worked at the FOX affil there as well. Sending out the best Well Dunne! to Allan. 

Speaking of the best, kudos to Well Dunne! Talent’s MITCH PHILLIPS, who won the Best VO Demo Reel award this weekend in NYC for – what else -his new demo, which you (yep…you) can hear by clicking his name and face on the new, improved and highly entertaining new Well Dunne! website — but ya gotta wait tip Monday. Wait all weekend but you can do it. So let’s applaud Mitch and admit this is a not too subtle commercial for Mitch’s deep booming voice. Well Dunne! Mr. P.

So you think that great ideas are going to keep you on the upward trajectory of your career? A Princeton professor has a different view and it’s a must-see article (thank you VINCE MANZE and JOHN MILLER for the must-see part of that….)

Milton Berle, TV’s first true star, was known far and wide for his huge…memorabilia collection. Which is now being auctioned off.
