Two Dates and a Name
Two Dates To Know: The Ides of March and May 20th ...
The former date is the deadline to nominate someone for membership in the Cable TV Pioneers. The latter is the night of the annual – this will be the 46th – Pioneers’ Dinner opening the annual NCTA show in Boston.
info on nominations, the rules, regulations and process you can send me
a note or more directly ask for a packet by emailing email@example.com or call Les Read
at 516-944-0444 ... leave your name, call back number and and the name
of the person to be sponsored. The candidate must have at least 20
years of direct involvement with cable and has made a ‘significant’
contribution. Also, only “complete, neat, clean and legible”
applications will be accepted ... by mail only (no faxes or emails) and
MUST be in Les’ hands NLT the Ides of March.
we got some nice, some odd and some funny suggestions following last
week's musing on what to call this expanded business we’re all now
involved with. One in particular caught my eye as PR guru Bob Gold – taking the opportunity to trumpet landing Echostar as an official client – suggested “Ergenometry – after Charlie of course, or Ergemetrics or heaven forbid: ergendia.”
Heaven forbid, indeed!
after a raft of other suggestions (videomania?), I realized we had
inadvertently named it all when we started this company just over 20
years ago: Media Business or MediaBiz!•
