Street Crew

There seems to be a new push in television today to get viewers to share their pictures, video, etc with local tv stations. I know CNN uses this but I'm curious how it works on the local level. Will people really take the time?? or are some so geeked up about it - they send stuff all this time?

Here is a nice promo from WBIR about their "street crew"...

Salary Survey


In an effort to help the fine readers of IDOPROMOZ... I'd like to start a dialog on salaries in television promotion.

It all depends on market, station owners, etc... but lets use the anonymous response option - and give out some details on what people make in this business.

Creative Service Directors
Promotion Managers
Writer/Producers
Art Directors

Any info would be great. Be general if you feel you need to. I think it would be very helpful to all of us... the more of us who participate - the better!

Give details such as:

POSITION:
MARKET SIZE:
SALARY:

Microsoft: I'm a PC

Microsoft's answer to the "I'm a Mac" spots... pretty cool. Great take on the competition's ads.



What happened to those Seinfeld ads? Word is - they've been pulled. Microsoft claims they planned that all along.

Right.

I do think this is much better than Jerry's spots.
