Growing up in the Midwest near St. Louis offered many insightful life lessons. One was experiencing all four seasons. In the depths of winter, nothing was more enticing than the thought of sun shining through palm trees in Florida. The Cardinals had their spring training camp in St. Pete, and the stands were full of baseball fans who rather gleefully basked in the warmth while commenting on the frigid temps back home. Some of the most fervent winter avoiders were able to work and live in the Sunshine State, and one such Midwesterner is GAYLE BEATTY. Ms. Gayle is heading to Orlando, where she’ll be working with VP Creative CHRIS FRIEDRICHS at Fox’s WOFL as a writer producer for the combo stations, WRBW and WOGX. Gayle is no stranger to Florida – she’s worked for TV operations in Sarasota at WWSB where she was CSD as well as in Tampa where she was Promo Manager for WFTX, the Scripps’ ABC. The SIU Carbondale grad got her start in TV at KSNW in Wichita as Marketing Coordinator and Promo Producer and was lucky to work with DALE LOCKETT at KHOU in Houston. She’ll be celebrating a Disney Christmas for sure. Well Dunne! Gayle.

Think About This: Hold on to what is good, even if it’s a handful of earth. Hold on to what you believe, even if it’s a tree that stands by itself. Hold on to what you must do, even if it’s a long way from here. Hold on to your life, even if it’s easier to let go. Hold on to my hand, even if I’ve gone away from you. ~ Pueblo Indian Prayer
She’s starting on Thanksgiving Day…it’s auspicious to pick such a memorable day to begin a new chapter. CHRISTINE VARGAS is doing just that – picking Thanksgiving, when she starts as News Promotion Manager at Tribune’s FOX affil in San Diego. I bet they’ll have pumpkin pie (at least) for her, eh? Christine is coming over from CBS affil KFMB in SD where she started as Promo Coordinator and was upped to Topical then Senior Promo Producer…shows good work and an eye that her former CSD, MIKE STEWART, had. Very excited for her. Well Dunne! Christine.
Listen up folks in the DC area. Well, more specifically one particular area, namely Gaithersburg, Maryland. Tomorrow (Tuesday Nov 7) is election day and the talented JIM MCNULTY is running for City Council. Do we need to tell you to vote? OK, then – GO VOTE. For him. The University of Scranton grad started his creative career (yes, he’s a TV creative!) at WYOU in Wilkes-Barre, PA and honed his creative promo chops in DC at WJLA, WRC and WBDC before catching on at Discovery Home/TLC and working at any number of creative leadership roles for the behemoth media co. Now he’s the owner of his own shop – Wurdsmith Creative. He’d be a super councilman! So Gaithersburgers…get out there and do the citizenship thing. Well Dunne! Jim.
Worry not…none of the WRAL promo folks were injured in the fire that broke out at their Raleigh studios on Friday night. Good news indeed.

Some people think 13 is an unlucky number. Not so. For instance, this upcoming November 13 is going to be a good one for ADAM DEPAUL. It’s the day he starts as Promotion Manager at WOFL/WRBW/WOGX in Orlando. He’s taken on the #2 slot behind VP/Creative Services CHRIS FRIEDRICHS and Mr. Adam will be developing and executing promotion and marketing concepts for on-air, social and online as well as overseeing and executing client commercials, community events and event-driven promotions. Cool. The Jacksonville FL native was most recently a writer producer at Hearst’s WPBF in West Palm. The Full Sail grad (and that school is am-az-ing) was also a Sr. Producer for WMOR in Tampa. Yes, that’s a Well Dunne! for Adam!
Think the hiring process in the US is wonky? Take a look at how truly bizarre it is overseas. Thanks BBC.
