Hard work pays off…gotta believe that. And as proof, behold the new Promo Manager for FOX’s Memphis operation, ALISTAIR CLARK. His work has impressed his CSD, WAHEED ALQUASAMI, who wrote this about his new PM:  “Alistair has been our promotions producer for the past three years. During that time he has helped us launch many award-winning campaigns and has been a crucial asset to our department. I have personally seen Alistair flourish into a very effective writer and cinematographer.”  Well Dunne! Alistair.

 Down hard against the Mississippi in Memphis, the FOX OandO has a new Creative Services Director. WAHEED ALQAWASMI has been promoted from Promo Manager. But the real story is how the go-getter got from Amman, Jordan. For 13 years, Waheed called Amman home, then his whole family made the move, which according to the distance calculator on happyzebra.com is 6,634.4 miles, or 10,677 kilometers.  Now THAT is a move people. Waheed arrived speaking English with a British accent, but that soon was replaced with “ya’ll” when he went to HS. And it was in high school that he won his first Emmy. He’s been writing, producing and filming/editing documentaries and music videos, earning a nice IMDB page as well as the slot at Fox. Watch for some very good work coming under his direction. Well Dunne! Waheed.
