Excuse the light posting, as the year end media onslaught shows no sign of slowing down:
After about an hour at Bloomberg — I literally jumped back into the booth to comment on the breaking Altria news — I go back to my office before running to the Nasdaq for a quick hit at NDTV. Then a meeting at UBS — a pal there took me to a terrific lunch at The Modern, the new restaurant adjacent to MOMA.
Back to the office, where I have a 40 minute conversation with Business Week — big surprise coming next week! Then off to Forbes for a quick year in preview video.
Mind you, this is on top of the WSJ on Monday and on Wednesday, Barron’s on Saturday, Reuters Tuesday, and Kudlow last and this week; Noah Blackstein was on tonite — I was sorely tempted to mix it up with him again!
Total compensation for this PR onslaught: $0.00
That’s right, you don’t get paid diddley for any of this stuff. With a bajillion people willing to do this for free, none of the channels need to pay for any of this; Hell, half of them do not even provide transport.
I am whupped. I better get a helluva Xmas bonus this year to cover the millions of dollars of PR I generated for my employer.
I am so tired, I am actually rooting for a transit strike so I can stay home Friday . . .
Security will take me down at nearly all of those establishments. Maybe we can trade places.
But, as you said, your firm gets a lot of attention, right? More publicity, more business–it’s all to the good. Then again, it might mean you have less time for blogging, though that’s another story…
