A lot going on in the Carolinas. Good thing WSOC has NIKKI OOSTRA onboard as a promo producer. She was most recently at Nexstar’s WNCT in Greenville NC where her CSD, the uber-talented MARC MORRISTON, was thrilled with her. You can’t hold a muy-talented person back, and Nikki made the switch to the ABC affil in the Queen City. Queen Charlotte people. Look her up. Big statue at the airport. Nikki has a background as a Director of newscasts, which means she is cool under pressure. She’d recently worked at WPDE in Myrtle Beach, at WSPA in Spartanburg, and at WACH in Columbia. All South Carolina. She calls Coal City, Illinois home. Again, Google it. She’s super and fun and we all say Well Dunne Nikki.

The very week she begins as an official promo producer, NAOMI PIECE has a hurricane to deal with. A Major hurricane to be precise. As they say in the south, bless her heart. The young marketing pro was studying journalism and landed an internship at WNCT, the Nexstar CBS/CW duop in Greenville, NC. Greenville is about an hour and a half from the ocean, but Florence might muscle through like a member of the Russian mob to rough up eastern NC. Back to Naomi…she was doing the news internship and on her last day, she sat with CSD MARC MORRISTON (a favorite!) and his crew. She fell in love with TV marketing, and when she went back to college (either UNC Pembroke or East Carolina – she went to both) she focused on marketing and promotion. How terrific. She’s new but is fitting in like a vet. Naomi, you’ll have a great story to tell. What a way to begin! Well Dunne! and best of luck to you Naomi!

Seventeen years since the towers fell. Americans, in those 17 years, have forgotten how unified we were then. They’ve turned on the media. Turned on truth. Turned on ‘those people’ whomever that may be. Let this 9-11 anniversary be a time to reconsider the divisions and wonder if all the days of living since that perfect September morning in New York might have brought about a different result. As Gandi said…be the change you want to see.

Sometimes, a good producer arrives on your doorstep thanks to their spouses new job. Yes, follow the thread here. When NIKKI OOSTRA’s husband got transferred to Greenville, NC, it was the perfect timing for Marketing Director (and major favorite) MARC MORRISTON, who was on the hunt for a talented marketing producer. As you no doubt have surmised, NIKKI is now on board at the Nexstar owned WNCT, CBS. She has a background as a Director of newscasts, which means she really is cool under pressure. She’d recently worked at WPDE in Myrtle Beach, at WSPA in Spartanburg, and at WACH in Columbia. All South Carolina. Love to see creative solutions to promo producer problems. Now it’s time for PROMO BOOT CAMP!! (blatant self promotion). Nikki, Marc’s team is a great place to be. Well Dunne!

So much going on…so little desire to do anything that isn’t “summer-related.” Luckily, AARON BEVILL doesn’t feel that way. He’s the new Creative Services Manager for WNCT and ENCT, the CBS and CW affils in eastern Carolina, namely Greenville. It’s a promotion…love hearing about promotions. Before he was tapped for CSM, Aaron was working nights as writer producer, which he did so well he won an Emmy for his work…only the fifth golden statue in the history of Greenville TV which led to the stations winning their first CBS Eye on Excellence Award for promotion. Aaron is a grad of Eastern Carolina U and loves basketball and his new baby. He also knows how to fix yachts. Yes, he can fix yachts. Now how many can list that on a resume? Sounds like this is a great year for Aaron and the stations. CSD MARC MORRISTON is very proud of the whole thing. Well Dunne! Aaron.
