John Wayne

So I’m watching one of my favorite John Wayne movies, “The Shootist” which also stars a Richie Cunningham looking Ron Howard. It’s one of only a few John Wayne movies in which his character dies, the other one I can remember is “The Cowboys”. It started me wondering what other actors had their character die […]

I Got the Job

I had planned to get up early this morning for a 6 am men’s Bible Study in Hernando, but since I didn’t hit the sack until around 1am, the study group was well on it’s way to the closing prayer when I finally opened my eyes. I would have slept later, but Trey was in […]

A New Year, A New Job

My wishes came true. The weather was rotten and I was able to get a lot of work done today on the video project for the church. I also had another wish come true. I got the phone call today. The Memphis company I’ve been interviewing with for the past month called to offer me […]

Coming to a Newspaper Near You

This was an interesting day. I had what might be my last interview with the Memphis company. It was unlike any other interview I’ve ever had because the person asking the questions was actually at Rockefeller Center in NYC. A tele-conference interview.

The future of local tv?

Ran across an interesting article or opinion the other day from Terry Heaton. (tip of the hat to Peggy Phillip for the headsup) Terry was a news director at the competition when I was an anchor/reporter in Huntsville, AL. He now runs a consulting business in Nashville. His thoughts were good for me since I […]

Good to hear from good people

Email is supposed to make communications easier and much more efficient, but it’ll do nothing if we don’t use it. Case in point: Last night I sent out e-mails updating people on everything that’s happened to me and my family in the past 6 or 7 months. When I hit the “To” button to address […]
