*** And much, much more!

*** My friend, Bob Young, passed away on Saturday. He was the Deputy Commander of the Naval Media Center, a friend, a father, a brother, and a husband.

This is from Gordon Hume, currently the CO at NMC:

Naval Media Center Team, Shipmates and Friends,

It is with great sadness that I report to you that our Deputy and Shipmate, Mr. Robert C. Young, lost his battle with cancer this morning, Saturday, June 30. Final arrangements are pending, but we expect the funeral to be held on Friday evening, 6 July, in Frederick, Maryland. We will get full details out as soon as they are available.

After a full career in the active duty Army as a broadcast engineer, Bob came to a then, fledgling Navy Broadcasting Service in 1986. He managed the engineering operations of 20 broadcast detachments worldwide and oversaw the rapid deployment of mobile broadcast detachments to Saudi Arabia to support Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm, and later to Haiti and Somalia.

As Associate Director for Engineering, Bob revolutionized Navy shipboard life by bringing live satellite radio and television to ships on every ocean. That single accomplishment, four years in the making, immeasurably improved the quality of life for Sailors at sea and took every ounce of cutting edge engineering expertise, contracting persistence and political diplomacy that he could muster. It has been rumored that when word of the innovation reached the fleet his telephone rang off the hook and Admirals changed their schedules to meet with him.

Over the past several years, Bob has been Deputy Commander of Naval Media Center. As the continuity and corporate memory here at NMC, Bob is largely responsible for solid foundation upon which we have built the outstanding reputation for quality and mission accomplishment that NMC enjoys around the Fleet and among the services.

But Bob was much more than just a great engineer and Deputy, he was a trusted confidant, valued advisor and above all, a great friend. He will truly be missed.

I am profoundly grateful for having had the opportunity to serve with Bob, a man who not only served our great Nation with honor for over 40 years, but one who has left an indelible stamp on the Naval Media Center and on the lives of literally millions of Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, their families and countless others that continue to serve.

Please keep his wife Allie and his entire family in your thoughts and prayers.

CAPT Gordon Hume, USN

Commanding Officer, Naval Media Center

Assistant Chief of Information, Internal Information (OI-4)

*** One Paragraph Pitch:

For the past 3 months I have been submiting to every single PR/Communication position I can get my eyes on. Entry level positions are extremely hard to come by in New Jersey or New York and without knowing anybody, it is extremely difficult to get your foot in the door. I often wonder if hiring commitees or others in charge of hiring remember what it was like trying to get that first job. Results and experience are priorities and I understand that is the best way to find the perfect fit for a position. There just has to be a point where someone is willing to give you that shot. When you show up to an interview well dressed, well spoken and well…doing everything to the best of your ability it is extremely discouraging to know that your at the most extreme disadvantage having limited experience. I would of loved to have taken an internship while in college but working for no pay just wasn't an option as I worked several jobs just to pay tuition and rent. I did serve as the spokesperson/PR coordinator for a grass-roots student organization called “NJNEWSWATCH” while attending Rutgers University. At “NJNEWSWATCH” I compiled media contact lists and pitched story ideas to local newspapers. My call to action is to see if anyone in the NorthEastern United States (preferably New York or New Jersey) is willing to take a chance on a young man who is looking for the opportunity to prove himself in the PR/Communication field. There really is no chance because I am a fast learner and enjoy working with the media. I have an overzealous work ethic and great interpersonal skills. Also, I am extremely versatile because I speak, write and read three languages fluently (English, Spanish, Italian). My PC skills are as great as they can be as I have been working with Microsoft Office programs for over 10 years. I am available ASAP and resumes are available upon request.

*** Ned and Mike “blogged” the IABC conference in New Orleans. You can read the postings (which are still be posted, sort of) at www.nedsjotw.com. Mike still doesn’t know the conference is over.

As for me, I have more reporting to do, and will post some in this newsletter and the rest at www.nedsjotw.com. I particularly want to share details of my tour of the city with Geraud Braud on Wednesday before I flew north to Chicago.

Flights everywhere were messed up on Wednesday. I saw Mike at the airport because his flight to Washington was cancelled. I saw Dr. Negussie Teferra at the airport because his flight to New York was delayed due to power outages. I saw people heading through Dallas whose flights were delayed by rain and flooding. Flights to Chicago were late if not cancelled. Barb Gibson was worried about her connection to London. Don’t worry, they told her. Everything is delayed getting out. When I finally did get to Chicago, the airport was crowded with people sleeping on cots.

*** About Ned and his “Can’t Wait” postings:

Spare me the spam.

*** More about the “Can’t Wait” postings:

Hi! I appreciate your emails and figure if I can't read them or don't want to read them, I can delete them. Besides, we signed up to receive the job announcements on our own, you didn't force us! Keep up the good work!

Lisa Rhyne

*** How many is too many?

I get emails from TheLadders.com almost daily. Do you think Marc Cenedella listens when people tell him “to limit”? Don't limit anything. 'Delete' works really well.

Suzan French

*** Delete button:

Ned,

It's too bad there are such blowhards on this list! Sheesh! I know I have a tendency to get my panties in a twist over silly things, but for god's sake, there's this little thing called a “delete” button that when pressed, makes things you don't feel like reading go away.

If these people have the two minutes it takes to kvetch at you over e-mails that allow you to continue this great service you provide to us FOR FREE, they certainly have the 30 seconds it takes to trash the offending stuff.

Most of the non-JOTW communications you send out don't really pertain to me, but I always read them, in the off chance they will relate somehow to my life, or someone else's (if I were to, say, press that other button called “forward”).

Ignore the tightwads, Ned, and keep on doing what you're doing! I've thanked you before, I'll do it again. You, and the JOTW, rock!

-Signed, anonymous, as I don't any of these uptight people turning their anal-retentive ire at me!

*** From Buddha:

Are you still sending 'War & Peace' length emails, lord, it is such a chore to erase them with MicroSoft Windows Eraser TM. Please label them:

“Ned's JOTW message that feeds his kids and keeps the computer running but you can Erase TM right now if you are too busy to read.”

I would love to come to the IABC meeting but unfortunately my boss wants me in the office on the 12th. If you would like a call in guest (ala Donahue) let me know we'll work out a routine.

*** Why is Shonali going to the Playboy mansion?

she's going to teach Hugh Heffner how to “google” the internet for information, troll the internet for dates, and interview him for an upcoming Playboy podcast! Or maybe she entered a PB swimsuit contest and won and going to the Mansion is her prize!

Renee Adler

(Guess why Shonali is going to the Playboy Mansion and you can decide what she will wear. Renee is the first to guess. How about the rest of you?)

*** Why do they call it freelancing?

Ned, please post this to the next issue of JOTW. Once again, thanks for everything that you do.

I've been approached to do some freelance writing on an ongoing basis:

specifically press releases, a blog and a newsletter.

I was wondering if anyone knows what the general market rates are for these services, or where I can find the rates.

Thanks,

Sachin Shah

(I'll post. But we must be careful. Pricefixing is not legal.)

*** After the IABC Conference, Geraud Braud took me on a personal guided tour of the parts of New Orleans you don't see between the airport and the hotels. We saw the Lower Ninth Ward, St. Bernard's Parish and Lakeshore. We saw homes that had been washed away. We saw homes with holes cut into the roof where people tried to escape from their attics. We saw homes with high-water mark “bathtub rings” midway up the second story. We saw people working in one home, and stopped to talk to them. They were volunteers from the First Baptist Church in Victoria, Texas. They were all older than I am, and they were all working hard in the high heat and humidity, shoveling mud and debris out of the house so they could pull the plaster and flooring out and rebuild the house. The refuse being discarded was all ruined, but I could see what it was, and that it represented a home, a family, and a story.

The people helping to clean it out were essentially strangers. And while these volunteers were in New Orleans, they were staying with strangers. But in a disaster like this, are we not all affected. And is anyone really a stranger? (I have a few pictures, and will post them this week.)

We had lunch at Rocky and Carlos in St. Bernard Parish, across from the Chalmette Refinery. We each had a big plate of shrimp and baked macaroni and cheese. The sign says it all: “Ladies Invited.” (http://www.bestofneworleans.com/dispatch/2002-09-24/restreview.html)

I arrived at O'Hare about four hours late. The terminal was full of people sleeping on the rows and rows of cots. I grabbed one of my two bags pretty quickly, but the other was taken off the belt and stashed somewhere without me ever seeing it. I'm lucky I found it. Then I had to wait for the Thrifty van. I saw many Hertz and Avis buses go by, and Budget, and National, and Alamo. But no Thrifty. It finally did arrive about 25 minutes after I came out. When we arrived at the counter, far from the airport, there was one person working the desk, with a trainee watching. It took about an hour to get my car.

*** Here’s the first prize donated for the JOTW Survey:

Captain,

Here’s a lead for next week!

20.) Marketing and Promotions Director, WRMF, West Palm Beach, FL

The Marketing and Promotions Director is in charge of creating and maintaining a “larger than life” image of the radio station in the listener’s mind through the marketing and promotional vehicles decided upon by the strategic team of the radio station. These vehicles may include, but are not limited to: outside advertising, events, station remotes and appearances; street stunting opportunities; on-air promotions. It is also MAPS Director’s job to assist the sales department in identifying opportunities for station revenue, and executing these opportunities through radio station assets such as remotes, promotions, and Web site (or other NTR vehicles). This dual role demands an individual who can balance the revenue needs of the station with the commitment to product excellence. It also demands an individual who can execute the short-term tactics and long-term strategic marketing efforts of the station. In all activities of the Marketing and Promotions Department, the MAPS Director will work closely with the Program Director and/or General Sales Manager

The MAPS Director’s immediate supervisor is the General Manager.

• Strategic team: The MAPS Director is a member of the station’s strategic team. The head of the strategic team is the Program Director. The MAPS Director is an integral part of this team, and will attend all meetings and monitor sessions of the Strategic team.

• Station appearances: Any time the radio station appears in public, it is the MAPS Director’s job to ensure that all elements related to the appearance are excellent. This includes, but not limited to station vehicles, station personnel, remote broadcast signal, games and prizes.

• Clients: The MAPS Director must be sensitive to the needs of both sets of station clients: listeners and advertisers. In the case of station advertising clients, the MAPS Director should have the ability and experience to meet with clients, help Account Executives solve client problems and meet needs, and execute promotions that help build the client’s business and the radio station’s relationship with the client.

• Advertising: The MAPS Director has full charge of the execution of any outside advertising campaigns of the radio station. The station’s Strategic team will decide upon the development of the message. The MAPS Director will then oversee the creative process, as well as placement and follow-through to ensure that the station’s advertising goals have been met. For the purpose of this job description, advertising will be defined as television commercials, outdoor (billboards), direct mail, Internet/station Web site, listener e-mail letter, fax network letters, and any other mass communication with listeners or potential listeners. The goal of any campaign will vary depending of the goals set out by the strategic team, but in every event, the campaign should be designed to attract new listeners, retain and increase TSL with current listeners or build strong loyalty with P1 listeners.

• Station Promotions: the MAPS Director is in charge of two distinct types of station promotions: sales-driven promotions and programming-driven promotions. Either of these promotions must meet standard criteria to be part of the radio station: the promotion must benefit the client and have listener benefit. If there is no listener benefit, then it does not meet the criteria.

• Station Web site: The MAPS Director will create and execute a plan to build a database of listener e-mail addresses that will allow the radio station to market directly and often to its P1 audience.

• Budget: The MAPS Director will create and maintain the station’s Marketing and Promotion budget.

• Station Promotional Vehicles: The MAPS Director is responsible for the maintenance of all station promotional vehicles (such as remote van, truck, RV slot machine, etc.) and the training and supervision of the drivers of all station vehicles.

• Staff Development/work environment: The MAPS director will build a team of individuals in the department that are dedicated to excellence in client (audience and advertising) services.

• Sales meetings: The MAPS Director should attend all regularly scheduled meetings of the sales staff.

• Promotions meetings: The MAPS Director will conduct weekly promotions meetings with PD, GSM, and other members of the Marketing and Promotions staff.

• Implementation of the station’s Marketing Model.

• Develop annual Marketing Kit/Plan with specific dates to maximize sales and community opportunities.

Cancer Treatment Center of America (CTCA) is a growing national network of cancer hospitals located in Philadelphia, Chicago, and Tulsa, with an outpatient clinic in Seattle and a new hospital currently being built in Phoenix. Cancer Treatment Centers of America has the only holistic, truly integrated cancer care model in the country that specializes in treating cancer patients with the most advanced, comprehensive medical treatments. These treatments include traditional surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, combined with scientifically supported complementary medicine such as nutrition, naturopathic medicine, mind/body medicine, psychological counseling, physical therapy and spiritual support to heal the whole body.

This holistic and integrative model puts the patient and their family at the center of its care while utilizing the highest quality and service standards. Its what we call The Mother StandardSM – treating our patients with the same love and respect that we'd want for our mothers, fathers, sisters, or other loved ones. And what the outcomes are showing is that the holistic, Mother Standard approach greatly improves patient quality of life.

Our success is measured not only by the continued rapid growth in the number of patients we treat, but also in our patients success in winning their fights against cancer. CTCAs vision is “to be recognized and trusted by people living with cancer as the premier center for healing and hope.”
