Did you spend Labor Day putting away summer clothes…or vowing to buckle down and help the children do their best in school this year…or did you help neighbors stack their household goods in their front yard…or help those in shelters as they tried to find their way to a different life? Perhaps you prayed for rain in Burbank and prayed for no rain via Irma in Florida. The last week has seemed like a year’s worth of events…of disbelief, of empathetic suffering, of unsure futures and anger at it all. Or did it leave you with that numbness that comes with overload? Whatever this last week brought you, perhaps it let you understand the deep kindness and care that is at your core…at all our cores.

 

Cincinnati is where JEFF PAULUS now calls home, and he’s using his creative talents for the folks at FOX affil WXIX in the city where they claim the best ice cream in the country. Jeff is a man who knows how to do so many things, which means he’ll be having fun in promotion. He’s handled promo and even run the department in Lima, Ohio at WLIO…and the man knows how to punch a newscast. Do we say that now…punch a newscast? Or is that like tape..we know what it means but it isn’t really what happens. Perhaps it needs to be changed to ‘did you get those pixels’ instead of tape. Jeff wrote and produced for legendary WBNS in Columbus. Glad to see his gifts being put to good use. Well Dunne! Jeff.

 

Are you an ambitious young promo pro who wants to run their own department but needs some solid work on their reel and a mentor that will guide? BTW, this is one amazing mentor. There’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with a non-crazy station in the upper Midwest where you would not only be appreciated, but groomed to be an excellent CSD. Contact me for details.

 

Saw the most interesting promo on Free Form…a promo that is a text on screen. With their target demo, it seems a terrific idea. Well Dunne! Free Form.

Let’s face it…no matter what, the desire to return home (despite what John Donne had to say about it, and he spelled his last name wrong…) seems to bring about decisions that turn our lives onto different paths. DOM NARDO is returning home…to Ohio, where he’s taken the Marketing Manager slot of Raycom’s WXIX, Fox in the Queen City. Dom is a grad of Ohio University where Rufus the Bobcat is the mascot. He was in Cincy at one time as CSD of WCPO, the Scripps ABC affil. Where’s he been lately? Up in Buffalo NY heading up the creative efforts of WIVB, the Media General CBS there. No doubt he’ll have a blast being home again…he starts Monday. Let’s all give him a big Well Dunne! Dom. 


The London Times has totally revamped, rebranded, re-graphiced and just plain changed every last thing about their website. Pity. It now looks like everybody else. Mentioning it since change for change’s sake is NOT good marketing. Carry on.
