Graciousness is not an adjective that one often hears in describing a city. Instead, words like ‘Bustling’, ‘Growing’, ‘Fast-paced’, even ‘Picturesque’ are used – but ‘gracious’…not so much. One such city that can be described as gracious is Charleston, South Carolina. Home to The Battery and hometown to Rhett Butler, Charleston has a rich history, an elegant look and a social structure full of house parties and debutantes. It’s going to be the new home of JEFF WINGET, who is taking the Creative Services Director slot at Raycom’s WCSC, CBS. Jeff is making the change from St. Louis where he handled marketing, promo, art and the like for KSDK as the Director of Marketing and Promotion. The Utah State grad was at Salt Lake City’s KSL Director of Brand Services before hitting The Lou. Jeff begins Monday. The city is decorated for the holidays…and it couldn’t be a better time to be there. Well Dunne! Jeff.
Think About This: (a personal favorite…) “To touch someone with kindness is to change someone forever. Because for everyone you touch, you also reach everyone they will ever know. And everyone they will ever know. And everyone they will ever know. And so, for the rest of all time, your kindness will be felt, in waves that will spread, long after you move on.” ~ TUT, Notes from the Universe

One of the best things local television can do is be part of their community; spotlighting outreach programs to help when needed, highlighting outstanding actions and people via recognition, trying to make sense when tragedy strikes as well as bringing comfort. Down in Charleston, after the murders that made the world shake its head in dismay, Raycom’s WCSC stepped up and produced a series of image spots reinforcing the city’s strength in never allowing a tragedy to define the good people of The Palmetto City. CSD DANI DUDEK wrangled her producers, KRISTIN LEE, SAMANTHA HIGGINS and MAC FAIL along with her Graphics talents DEMONTRE PARISH and STEVE RADFORD. The CBS affiliate used on-air and social media, focusing on the strengths of Charleston’s people coming together. Click here to see them and check out social’s hashtag #standwithcharleston. Well Dunne! everybody. Thanks Dani.
PROMAXers…have you checked out that guitar at Stephen Arnold Music’s suite? Really? Well do it! Signed by Les Paul, it can be yours if you sign up. Winner will be chosen Thursday (today if you’re reading this via your email) so don’t miss out. And check out the Guitar Legends while you’re there. Give Stephen a Hi Ya’ll for me while you’re at it.
Take a gander at three fun favorites…MARC MORRISTON of WNCT in Greenville NC, STEVE PATRICK of WHEC in Rochester, and DAN FLAXER of WSAV in Savannah. Having fun.
Adore RUSSELL BRAND? For sure. Then it’s good to know a new documentary about him is on tap, and the good folks at illuminate over in Studio City have contributed to making it top drawer. It’s all in the post, which illuminate Prez TAL FIALA said was a blast. Put Brand: A Second Coming on your To Watch list and put illuminate on your give ‘em a call list as well. Well Dunne!
