With all eyes on Florida and Irma, it seems a little shallow to talk about people with new jobs in TV marketing. But in reality, it’s not. A job is crucial…even though one is cautioned not to let it be part of ‘who you are – it is. A good job can make life better. A bad job can make even the happiest individual miserable. So while we watch the hurricane and send wishes and prayers to all the Floridians…to the friends and colleagues who are helping by broadcasting much needed information…we’ll carry on. Turn the spotlight on those whose smiles and hopes are fresh and whose future is rainbow hued.


KENNY LAWRENCE is now President and GM of Nexstar’s WJHL, in Johnson City, Tennessee. At one time, he was a marketing pro with CBS TV Distribution and at CBS Atlanta. He announced that he’s hired STEVEN WALLACE as his new CSD, so one surmises Steve must have a killer reel and all. Mr. W will be coming to WJHL from ABC affil WTVQ in lovely Lexington, Kentucky. Steven got his promo chops at WFAA in Big D…one of the best. He’s done work with agencies, etc. Well Dunne! Steven. Thanks Kenny.

Zello is an app that let’s you use your cell as a walkie-talkie. It was indispensible during Harvey in Houston so you Florida peeps might want to consider downloading it now. Well Dunne! Talent’s MITCH PHILLIPS, who is in the Fort Lauderdale area, is mpvoice for those who want to connect.


Going to be a long weekend…no matter where you are. Fires all over the west…dust storm in Phoenix, Houston still reeling, and there are 2 Atlantic Ocean hurricanes. God bless each and every…xo


Think About This:  And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through – how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.”  ~ Haruki Murakami

Tenacity. Real tenacity. Not a lukewarm effort accompanied by tenacity rhetoric. It’s amazing to behold and asks that we look at our path to see if we exhibit tenacity, and in what degree. Let’s hold up someone who has it, with a capital “T”. Meet JIM SHOWERS, who is the new CSD at WJHL, Media General’s CBS in Johnson City, TN. If you’ve ever been to the mountains of NC, TN and VA, you know how absolutely gorgeous it is. Jim came east with a Masters degree from Washington State U and started his TV career producing commercials for cable in Twin Falls, Idaho. Again, gorgeous country. He jumped in the marketing pond in Pocatello and then landed at KOAM in Joplin, before it was hit by the tornado that tore it in two. He found his way to Casper, Wyoming and ended up running A/V for the University of Wyoming athletic department, a job he loved. Cutting to the chase, he wanted back into broadcasting (the lure is like a siren call) after being in real estate and he ‘started at the bottom’ doing Topicals for Media General in Spartanburg. Give yourself a gold star if you know that’s WSPA, CBS. When the opening in Johnson City popped up, he found himself in one of the prettiest parts of the USA. And that, as previously stated, is tenacity. A big Well Dunne! Jim.
