Tragedy in Dallas

I watched it all unfold last night on WFAA's live stream through their app.  Senseless tragedy.

News stations are often called upon to produce a spot or spots following an event like this.

Here are two entirely different approaches, both effective... produced mere hours after this horrific shooting.

A Personal Announcement

After 7 great years here in Sacramento, I am moving on.

Beginning July 18 - I will be the new Director of Marketing for KENS-TV in San Antonio, TX.



This is a station and market I am all too familiar with.  I worked there from 1998 - 2001 and fell in love with the city and KENS5.  I'm thrilled to be going back. 

The move will put us much closer to my mother, father, sister and brothers - along with many friends and extended family.

I will follow in the footsteps of three great former KENS CSDs who taught me a ton as I was growing up in this business - Allen Lansing, Dale Lockett and Stan Melton.  All great guys.

I will be leaving behind KOVR/KMAX in Sacramento.  Truly one of the best places I have ever worked.  From General Manager Kevin Walsh's guidance and creative freedom to the very best staff in the country -- I will miss this place.  I have never had the honor of working with such a talented team and I know they will prosper long into the future.  Seriously the best.

Sacramento has been a great place to call home and raise our son.  I'm excited to introduce my wife and Henry to San Antonio.

More to come as I embark on this next chapter.  And hey - if anyone knows of a good Promo Manager or producer -- send them my way!   donsjr@hotmail.com
