This and that…starting with a Well Dunne! going to Z Space Creative’s GLENN ANDERSON and ANTHONY FERGUSON, whose work for Cox’s WFTV in Orlando garnered all involved a recent Suncoast Emmy. The WFTV set was a Z Creative work. Niiiice. They worked with WFTV News Director MATT PARCELL. Big thanks to KATHRYN MOSHER-BOULE for the info.

Cancer has robbed the world of another creative. Robbed the world of a friend, a husband, brother in law…of a unique presence. We are all the less for it. WILL HARRIS has passed away, adding another notch to the unrelenting numbers that cancer claims as its own. For the last four years, Will has been Creative Services Director of Cox’s FOX affil in Tulsa, KOKI. Along the way, he’s done marketing, creative and producing for Cox stations in the Northwest, and did amazing work at KTVU in Oakland in the SF market. He attended Norfolk State U and called Virginia Beach home. So many lives will miss him.

It’s a small world after all. Did you know there are two WILL HARRIS’ who do TV promotion? And they both have worked in Seattle? The Will Harris who is the focus of today’s column is a grad of East Carolina U who is now the Promo Manager of Sinclair’s KOMO TV, the ABC affil in the aforementioned Seattle. Will got promoted in January. He’s worked his way up the ladder at KOMO first as a producer, then specialist and now the PM title. Excellent. Along the way and before decamping the SE, Mr. Will did promo at Hearst’s WXII in the Greensboro-High Point market. But wait – there’s more. This Will (the other promo Will Harris is CSD at Cox’s Fox affil in Tulsa and was Promotion Manager in Seattle at KIRO – reread first sentence) has a sideline that is very fun. He’s a comic book expert who blogs about the vast and growing fan base of comic books, including films with comic bases as well as conventions. It’s called comicsblend.com. Check it out but first say Well Dunne! Will Harris.

It’s hard to leave the gorgeous Monterrey area of California (think heaven with amazing golf) but when a great market and a great opportunity comes around, well, one has to box it up and move. Such is the case with ED EVEREST, who is the new Creative Services Director of Hearst’s WTAE in Pittsburgh. Ed decamps his Hearst-owned KSBW TV where he was CSD and where he recently helped launch Central Coast ABC, a multicast channel situation. He begins his new chapter and the trek across the Rockies come late June. Ed has a degree from Indiana U and has worked doing promo magic in Augusta, GA. When you see him at the PROMAX Station Summit, make sure you give him a high five. Well Dunne! Ed.
