Class, open your notebook and let’s begin. Anybody know what ‘carriero’ means. Open your Italian app. Yes, you reading this over your morning coffee. It means cartwright. Maker of wheels and carts. Very good. Yes, that’s correct. We now know something fun about WIVB’ newest Creative Services team member, JAMES CARRIERO. He’s a native Buffalo man who has his degree in communications with an emphasis on production. James comes to his first TV job from being Creative Director and Content Producer for Black Horse Videography. He’s worked at several prodco’s and even worked on a political documentary. He sounds like a real find for CSD STEVE PATRICK. Best thing is his video blog, says the ever cool Steve. Need to get that link and will share with you. Well Dunne! James. Very cool.
Why yes, that was KOAT’s DEILIA WILLIAMS sipping a drink in the restaurant scene on Better Call Saul. The woman is amazing in so many ways and is now officially cool. Officially.

Think About This: “The quality of mercy is not strained; It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven Upon the place beneath. It is twice blest; It blesseth him that gives and him that takes: ‘Tis mightiest in the mightiest; it becomes The throned monarch better than his crown: His sceptre shows the force of temporal power, The attribute to awe and majesty, Wherein doth sit the dread and fear of kings; But mercy is above this sceptred sway; It is enthronèd in the hearts of kings, It is an attribute to God himself; And earthly power doth then show likest God’s When mercy seasons justice.” ~ William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice Act V1 Scene 1
It takes approximately one hour and fifteen minutes to make the drive from Buffalo, NY to Rochester, NY. 76 miles. Of course that doesn’t take into account weather or heavy traffic. And that’s just one way. Make it a round trip and that’s 2 and a half hours a day. Each week that means 12 and a half hours a week. 650 hours in a years time. That’s 81 days if we buy into the time frames we’re using. That’s how much STEVE PATRICK is going to get back when he makes the switch from CSD at Hubbard’s WHEC in Rochester to CSD at Nexstar’s WIVB in Buffalo. Seems the wife wanted to live in Buffalo and his love kept him on the road back and forth. Steve’s just that kind of great guy. He’ll be returning to WIVB where he was a Producer and Political Editor back when LIN owned the station. The Fordham grad got into the world of TV marketing and promo at WTAE in Pittsburgh then ran the creative at WNCN in Raleigh back when it was NBC. His WHEC GM is a great one as well, so that was a hard decision to make. But all those hours in the car…gonna be a new man with time on his hands! Big Well Dunne! Steve.

Think About This: "Let us not deceive ourselves or live in a silly illusion about our
creativity. Creativity is a choice. (In theological terms, it is grace and
works operating together. It is an option to live a life with grace.)
Creativity is not a particular gift given to certain people only. It is a
personal choice and a cultural choice, An individual choice and a family,
professional, and societal choice, and at this time in our history it is a
species choice. We choose whether to let creativity flow or not-in our
educational systems, our media, our politics, our economics, our religions,
our very psyches. In theological terms, it is a matter of letting the Spirit
in, the Christ in, the Buddha nature in." ~ Matthew Fox
