What do you do when you’re a Buffalo Bills fan (in addition to being a native of Buffalo) and find yourself smack dab in the middle of Super Bowl Winner territory Pittsburgh? Not sure yet, but it’s the spot that STEVE PATRICK is in thanks to his new job as Assistant Promotion Manager at Hearst’s ABC affil in Steel City, WTAE. Steve’s been at the new job for about a month now, having moved down from the aforementioned Buffalo where he spent 8 years at CBS affil WIVB. CSD SHERRY CARPENTER says great things about him and he’s thrilled about his new station and new city. Steve’s background is an exciting one – he spent 10 years in New York City working at ad agencies and a great post house. Gotta love a guy who loves to write. So people, add him to our Faves List! Well Dunne! Steve.
Too bad Sprint didn’t take the boatloads of cash it paid out for some bangin’ TV spots (seen last night during HOUSE and 24 on FOX) and put that cash into customer service. Marketing is, after all, a whole effort, and no matter how good their on-air spots are, their customer service is so dreadfully bad, anybody who signs up will quickly sign off. Yeah, I’m a FORMER Sprint customer.
Think About This: “Our ordinary mind always tries to persuade us that we are nothing but acorns and that our greatest happiness will be to become bigger, fatter, shinier acorns; but that is of interest only to pigs. Our faith gives us knowledge of something better: that we can become oak trees.” ~ E. F. Schumacher
