Ah, 30 Rock. Home of NBC and WNBC, the NYC iconic Christmas tree, the winter skating rink and the site where the lobby holds a spot in art history (google Rockefeller, Diego Rivera and Lenin). Love the place. I bet JACK POORMAN loves it as well, especially now that he’s the Manager, News and Digital Promotion at WNBC as of yesterday, if you’re reading this on Tuesday the 19th. Jack’s no stranger to the Peacock Net…he’s been freelancing with MELISSA CRAWFORD’s Creative Team since June. He’s produced and directed a number of outstanding spots for WNBC including our StormRanger launch spots that ran in the Rio Summer Olympics; the TV Everywhere spots that are currently on-air; and he created New York Live’s new brand spots with Sara Gore and Jacque Reid. Before coming to New York, Jack was the coordinating producer for The Weather Channel’s “AMHQ with Sam Champion.” He also was the production manager for the Visual Effects Society Awards in Los Angeles, as well as, a marketing writer/producer/editor for both Cozi TV and KNBC. Well Dunne! Jack!

It’s the perfect…no the most perfect… time to be in New York City. Christmas tree going up at 30 Rock, ice skating, window shopping, more lights than ever. When KEITH MORAN shared that he was the new writer producer for VP MISSY CRAWFORD’s creative team at WNBC, the idea of how lucky he is was the first thing that popped to mind. Keith is going to be promoting the largest local TV investigative unit in NYC while working with Missy and Promo Manager PHYLLIS OHNEMUS. He calls it hitting the promo home run. His first spot dealt with their chief investigative reporter going to Europe to follow the NYPD anti-terror program. As if he needs more to be ideal, his hometown of Schenectady is just two plus hours north. Keith has moved from Chicago, where he was a promo producer at the FOX/CW duop for VP STEVE DONALD, who Keith says gave him his first big market. Niiiice. Mr. Moran has also worked doing promo and production in St. Louis, Indianapolis, his hometown at WRGB and in Albany. Can’t wait to see you soon, KM. Til then a big Well Dunne! Keith!

As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, it’s time to enjoy what might be the funniest TV episode – ever – the Turkey Promotion epi of WKRP in Cincinnati. “As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly,” is a line so classic, nothing more needs to be added. We all have stories about promos, events, shoots, people that did something silly…and it’s time to wrangle them in one place. Enter the brains of Topical Boot Camp, SYDNEY RUBIN, who is collecting antedotes, stories, and even folk tales of promo mishaps. What Fun! Share with her and we’ll all have some great laughs. Yes, names will be changed if requested to protect the guilty or easily embarrassed.
Time to rethink your voices for your stations…lots of contracts expire end of December. The only choice is Well Dunne! Don’t think otherwise.

New York – Market #1. Over at WNBC, the marketing division has a new #2 in the form of the lovely PHLLLIS OHNEMUS, recently promoted by the one and only MISSY CRAWFORD, VP of Creative and Marketing. Love hearing from MC and this is what she told us about Phyllis: Phyllis is a creative force with over 15 years of experience writing, producing and directing television campaigns. She’s known for creating fantastic work and she does it with confidence, enthusiasm and a smile. Phyllis has worked for WNBC since 2005, and as a full-time member of the Creative Services team since 2011. Her background also includes producing creative campaigns for LXTV and Fox 5 in New York. Before that she was Director of Marketing at Clear Channel Entertainment in Philadelphia where she oversaw marketing campaigns for Broadway touring shows. In her new role, Phyllis will supervise the Creative Services team. She will oversee image campaigns, news topicals, I-Team promos, POPs, billboards, print, radio, cable and social media. She’s studied at Arizona State and Temple. Now this is the most interesting part – she’s been an elephant rider, trapeze artist and dancer for circuses here and in Mexico. Coolness at the epitome of coolness! Wanna hear more about that. In the meantime, let’s have a Big Apple Well Dunne! for Phyllis.
