The email came in a a few minutes before 5:00 pm from Reporter Jason DeRusha of WCCO -TV , our CBS affiliate.
He had seen my post about Black Friday Ads on Blogher -- the network of women blogs that where I am a contributing editor and Jason wanted to chat. Then he wanted to do an on air interview. Did I mention that (a) my hair was a mess (b) my office was messier than usual and that is beyond comprehension for some and (c) I had to be on a webex facilitation at 5:50.
When Jason discovered I lived downtown he didn't think that my time crunch was an issue. He, the cameraman and the intern arrived at 5:30 and we were done by 5:45.So here it is, Jason's story on Black Friday Ads with me as his "marketing expert.
Besides the fact that he didn't mention the name of my blog, or Blogher and that my name is actually pronounced e la na ( like sha na na) rather than e lay na -- I thought his story was great.
Check out his blog he has a lot of info on Black Friday ads.
