As a broadcast company, one of our primary responsibilities is to our communities.  We have established a website to help create a centralized alliance in Tampa Bay to educate the public on the most current and accurate information on the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico – Deepwater Horizon – as well as educate [...]


Consider where and when to multi-task

June 30th, 2010 2 Comments

Life for most of us today is all about multi-tasking. We’ve Blackberry-iPhone-iPad-Facebook-Tweet crazy. I just received this story via email. Made me laugh out loud. Sometimes we just need to sit back and focus on one thing at a time. The other stall: Traveling down the interstate and needing to use the restroom, I stopped [...]


Mayhem for Allstate

I love this campaign. I think these are powerful commercials that will have tremendous recall. Dark humor, but creative for this generally very conservative company. As the cliche says, “Accidents happen”. This campaign effectively illustrates that fact and also the message that still speaks to this brand, “Are you in good hands?” I applaud this [...]


The glass of water

Everyone is familiar with the discussion of pessimist vs optimist.  Is the glass of water half  empty or half full?  I recently read this analogy in an email.  It hit home for me.  I only wish I had the lecturer’s name so they could be credited.  A lecturer when explaining stress management to an audience, Raised a glass [...]

BP continues to blunder

June 10th, 2010 1 Comment

BP is run by eejits.  I just read that they decided to dump nearly one million gallons of chemical dispersants into the Gulf of Mexico in an attempt to lessen the affects of this horrible environmental disaster. But in truth, these chemicals are likely to effect much of the seafood that comes from the Gulf.   The [...]


It’s time to take that relaxing vacation, right?

Did you know that not taking regular vacations is actually bad for your health?  Researchers have linked regular vacations to increased longevity and lower levels of heart disease — as well as your career.   It’s common sense, you’ll just burn out if you don’t relax and recharge.  So, take some time off.  Put the crackberry [...]


Target hits the bulls eye!

June 4th, 2010 No Comments

Target hit the bulls eye when it coaxed renowned designers to produce fashion products for its stores.  This is just one of the adjustments they made to cope with the recession and will help them continue to build their successful brand.  Target’s strategy could be compared to that of TJ Maxx and Ross who sell [...]


How do good kids get drugs?

May 24th, 2010 No Comments

I recently read about parents at a local high school that are overwhelmed about the drug abuse in their school.  This isn’t an intercity school where outsiders might say, “Oh, well, I’d expect it there”.  This is considered a good school.  Good kids. Parents who care about them.  Then, why are many linking the deaths of two [...]

You’ve heard me speak positively about social networking.  It’s caused behavioral changes in our society and I think most of it is positive both personally and in marketing.  We are living in a 24/7 Digital world that we need to understand and embrace.   HOWEVER, there is a social network out there that scares the [...]
