Good Morning from Mid-Michigan.
Red Wings Win! WCSX/Detroit offers up a great LOCAL piece on their website - celebrating the NHL Stanley Cup win by their local heros.
Another great example of relating to the local community. Check out the spread here.
Caught: Last night (by accident), CNBC's "The Business of Innovation" - and Mel Karmazin. Video clip here. Mel just one segment of a great hour; even IBM's commercials were wonderful (their spotlight on Harley-Davidson was classic). IBM Harley clip here (on right menu).
Mel's segment focused on the Sirius satellite effort to put video in cars.
While watching, I couldn't help recalling in my mind that Mel wanted nothing to do with one innovation: internet streaming during his days running CBS/Infinity. Props to Harve Alan for posting the video clip.
Dave Martin: A great post on management well worth your time this morning. Here.
Review: As noted here Sunday, our area here in the midwest suffered severe weather three nights in a row...Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I was in a casual conversation yesterday about the efforts of our local broadcasters with storm coverage. The television stations were staffed and generally got a A.
Radio - with one or two exceptions - not so good. While all passed on the EAS alerts to their audience, few did anything else as they were on auto-pilot - the voice-tracked on-air voices unable to relate. Total disconnect. Another missed opportunity at a time when the audience neded you the most; sending the message that "you can't count on us."
More later as the day permits.
