Is Philadelphia the Rodney Dangerfield of Nielsen markets? I mean, does it get the respect it so honestly deserves? After all, it is the capital of American democracy – home to more history than a history buff would care to list. It’s got cheesesteaks – even a naked bike ride. Yet it seems to be the middle sister of markets…everybody likes it but nobody enthuses about it. I bet that will change once COSMO LOSCO settles into his new job at NBC in the City of Brotherly Love. As of October 6, he’ll be Promotion Manager at WCAU, working with VP MATT LAWS. Cosmo actually started his career at WCAU back in ’05 when he was a Production Assistant. He’ll be leaving behind the good folks at FOX in DC where he was Promotion Manager. Other TV marketing slots that were enhanced by his work include WGAL in Harrisburg PA and NBC’s WRC in DC. On all levels, Well Dunne! Cosmo!
It’s National Pizza Month. Behave accordingly.
