Love is an amazing thing. One of the many attributes is the way it has of drawing us to places that are quite different than what we are familiar with. Like enticing a south Texas lady to move to Portland, Maine. Now before we go any further, Portland is F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S. Art, the ocean, lighthouses, golden trees in the fall, lilacs in the spring, smart people (the current Governor being the exception of course) but come February and March, it’s not Texas-like. That didn’t deter NIKI TURNER from making the move from San Antonio to Portland, following her heart and her hubby to a new city. That was six years ago when she arrived, just two weeks after CSD MATT EARL began at Hearst’s ABC affil WMTW. So, fresh as he was himself, he knew a good thing when he saw it and Matt snapped up the freshly arrived Niki, who had honed her promo chops at KSAT in the Alamo City. A grad of Trinity in SA, Niki was just upped to Assistant Creative Services Director from writer producer…and the story has a happy ending. She sounds so delighted – it makes your day! Well Dunne! Niki.
Bravo and Well Dunne! to everybody at Raycom Media and their fabulous live show benefitting the Louisiana flood victims. The money keeps coming in and it’s past the $800,000 mark. Harry Connick Jr and Randy Jackson hosted and the one and only Aaron Neville sang, among other great acts. Everybody take a bow and don’t forget to keep supporting the good folks who were actually washed away.

Wow… Designer Tom Ford’s NYC Fashion Week runway show was live streamed Wednesday night. Ask yourself…do your newscasts have this kind of accessibility? Looking at lots of station websites and live streaming isn’t as widespread as one would expect. Tom’s people are available for questions if needs must.
