Rob's Final Words to KNWA staff

This from a tipster:

This is a man that cares about his staff and that will do GREAT things at KARK!

"It has been an honor and privilege to work with you all. I liked coming to work here everyday (and I can't say that about all the places where I have worked). And I have learned a lot from working with you all. I know I am a better person for associating with you.

I am certain I will be back here at different times over the coming months. I will be talking with people at KNWA on an almost daily basis. By the way, my new cell phone number is --- --- ----. Call me anytime. If I were to offer any parting thoughts I would say this:

As a group of people working for KNWA; lift up your eyes and fix them on a place beyond the horizon. Don't limit your goals to ratings growth. Journey in trust, assured that the work you are performing is valuable for the community that you live in. Support each other. Respect each other. Laugh a lot. And while you must all be united in your efforts to grow KNWA's value, make sure you are also nurturing your own growth.

-Rob "

You really need to remove the cell #. How would you like YOUR cell posted on a blog?
Tacky.

From knowing Rob several years ago, his level of BS has grown tremendously. He sounds like a full-fledged corporate managerial goober.

I'll just remember the Rob of old... and raise my eyes to a point just above the horizon.

(sound of gagging in wastebasket)

I like the part where he says. "Don't limit your goals to ratings growth."

It's well known KNWA doesn't subscribe to the Neilsen book, because THEY HAVE NO RATINGS!!!

He wasn't done speaking and the station went off the air - how typical.

Attn staff please skip chapter 17: If You Shovel the BS Long Enough, Your Minions Will Eventually Believe It.

Oh crap. I thought I wasn't supposed to take my eyes off the ball. Now I've got to look just past the horizon!? Can we all just get on the same page with the managerial truisms?

Fight the good fight, keep your chin up, etc etc. How about - "save your job from the Nexstar chopping block by working long hours for no additional compensation, increase your productivity without increasing expenses, and whatever you do - do NOT question management. "

Rob - Please be prepared to enjoy FUEL. (I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP!)

"By applying FUEL to their business and lives, organizations and people can achieve the extraordinary! It sounds simple, because it is simple. One of the reasons that FUEL works is because it is easy to understand and apply.

Focus is where everything starts. What do you want to accomplish? What's your goal? What end result do you want to achieve?

Urgency puts everything into action, now. It is a call to action, and a call to eliminate things that distract from focus.

Enthusiasm is the drive that leads to success. Emerson said, "Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm." He's right! The FUEL systems show you how to put those words into practice.


Leadership is not just about title, it is really a way of life.

As people and organizations advance, they graduate to FUE3L!

Excellence is the goal in every endeavor and every product.

Execution of the system ties everything together."


This would be the patented FUEL system from rickrogala.com

Attn Staff:

In honor of our performance in July, we will be holding a breakfast buffet Tuesday AM in the conference room.

The menu will include "hash" browns and goose eggs.

Please plan on bringing your own tableware, as all of our resources are currently invested in the new Sports set.

The Mgt.

KARK needs a new sports set! The first move would be moving out Mark Rushing. He's the most boring sports anchor in history.

Why spend money on a set?

You ever seen a SMOKIN' HOT woman in grungy clothes? Well guess what? She's still worth watching!
