The CONUS investment will finance the completion of Phoenix TV's major TV services centre in London's West End.
Rick Bayles of WTN/London Comprods, who probably visited as many WTN bureaux as anyone at WTN over the years, tied the knot with Masha (formerly of WTN/Moscow) on April 1st. And for Rick, that's a better souvenir of WTN-paid travels than most of us have had.
