Richmond, Virginia’s WWBT, NBC, has a new Manager of Audience Development. ASHLY RICHARDS has been in her new office since Sept 24. She started her TV career in Richmond as the research director and marketing associate for WRLH, the FOX affil, before going to the CW in Virginia’s capital where she handled social media and special projects. She elevated the CW Richmond Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages to rank among the most “liked” CW affiliate social media pages in the country. Ashly also coordinated and helped manage all CW Richmond sponsored-events including Virginia Comicon and Wizard World. She wrangles three children under six which is amazing in and of itself. Talk about a together lady. And, she’s been on the job while her CSD ERIK CANDIANI has been on another of his memory-making vacations. Well Dunne! Ashly.

Think About This: “When I say it’s you I like, I’m talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed.” ~ Fred Rogers
Adventures come in all sizes and shapes…and they present themselves at times when we sometimes don’t expect them. Enter attitude. With the right attitude, they become life changing and joy producing. Yeah, that does sound a little over the top, but it’s actually true. ERIK CANDIANI has the right positive attitude as he embraces a new adventure that sees his family become trés modern. Bi-coastal actually. Mr. C is headed from the west coast to the east coast. Adieu VP Creative at KTVU in the Bay Area and Aloha to Raycom’s NBC affil WWBT in Richmond, VA. GM KYM GRINNAGE and he got along, to quote Forrest Gump, like peas and carrots, which leads to ERIK’s new role wrangling the creative staff in the city where they know the value of southern hospitality. He’s been CSD or VP Creative in Minneapolis and Denver plus was at KTLA in LA as well as KOVR in Sacramento. This will be an adventure – east of the Mississippi. Erik is a writer who turns out screenplays and has more energy than one can summon on a normal day. Great to hear it’s all going to be magnolia-covered and happy as soon as he drives all the way across the country. Now THAT is how you get the pulse of what’s going on. Huge Well Dunne! Erik.
