Some of us change jobs and move across town. Some move across time zones. Some move coast to coast. And SOME of us take the word ‘Adventure’ and go whole hog, choosing to take a very different path indeed. CRISTINA ROMENTO, who has lately been doing a fab job producing promos for Scripps’ “The List” in Phoenix, is packing up and moving to Thuwal Saudi Arabia, which is right on the Red Sea across from where Egypt ends and Sudan begins. Go on…Google it. She won’t be doing TV per se, but she will be using all her marketing talents to the betterment of the world, introducing inventions and startups on behalf of KAUST Official, which is King Abdullah University of Science and Technology. Cristina has longed to work overseas since she was little and this opportunity came along at just the right time. There’s going to be so much to share along this venture…can’t wait to hear all the details. On behalf of the TV peeps on this side of The Pond, a very international Well Dunne! Cristina.

Is there a prettier city in the spring than Atlanta? OK, Paris, but I’m talking domestic. Yes, Atlanta and their peachtrees in full bloom win the eyes and hearts of anyone who loves gorgeous. The timing of Atlanta in the spring is going to work out perfectly for DAVID TALLARICO. David is the new Promotion Manager at CBS’ WGCL, or as they brand themselves CBS46 and Peachtree TV (see, Peachtree is big business there). After not just one but two periods at WJAC, the Johnstown PA Sinclair NBC (once as producer and then again as CSD), David will bid adieu to Pennsylvania. He’s a PA boy with a degree from University of Pittsburgh and time as a producer at WPXI in The ‘Burgh. . Best of luck with your new job, David, and you’ll love working with your boss JEFF HOLUB. Well Dunne!

Job Alert – WXYZ Detroit has two (yes 2) open Producer slots. Come work in a dynamic news market for a fabulous company (Scripps) and one of my favorite CSD’s around (DAVE BAUMANN). This is not a paid ad…I mean it when I say it’s a great opportunity.

Well Dunne! Talent’s MELANIE HAYNES isn’t just fab behind the mic (and she is – click her name and give her a listen) but you’ll have the opportunity to see how she shines in front of the cameras as well. She’s just finished shooting an episode of SALEM, a new series for WGN.  Details on when it airs will be made yours in advance so you can set your iCal reminder. Well Dunne! Melanie!
