Here’s a few of yesterday’s headlines:
Making The Case For Brand Building Through Hyper-Targeting – commentary via MediaPost
Okay, it’s a bad joke and a horribly inappropriate title, but then again, when have I been known to be politically correct…
The Federal Communications Commission turned down Banks Broadcasting’s request to declare KNIN as a “failing station.” This makes Journal Broadcast Group’s bid to buy the station and combine it with KIVI Channel 6 impossible. For that matter, it means KNIN won’t be merged into any other Boise TV station for the time being, either.
So what does it mean for agency folks? In a nutshell, it is, and is going to be business as usual for now. If you’re in the local media buying business, you’ll still have to buy KNIN apart from other stations. If you use local television stations for broadcast production, you’ve still got the same number of resources available to you.
Recently found on the Boise Craigslist:
Junior public relations position. Drive, energy and commitment to succeed more important than direct PR experience. Will train. College degree, writing skills required.

Alas, the month of November will come and go without a Coffee Morning (well, at least not one that has been scheduled through here).
Given the schedule of the past few months, this month’s Coffee Morning would have fallen either this Friday or next Friday. And since there isn’t anything scheduled for this week, and next week will be the day after Thanksgiving, November is just shot.
So, what should we do? Try and schedule something on a Friday morning early in December? A different day of the week? I’m all ears. Leave your thoughts and suggestions in the comments.

challenging you guys to help round up 40 turkeys! Bring a frozen turkey to Drake Cooper this Friday am and we will take them to the foodbank
Helping out the Idaho Food Bank is a worthwhile cause, so I’ll bite. If you’d like to get involved, here’s what you need to do:
- Take a frozen turkey to Drake Cooper’s office, at 416 S. 8th St. in Boise on the morning of Friday, November 21st.
- Enjoy the coffee and donuts that they’re providing as an incentive.
Their goal is 40 turkeys, but I think this crowd can do better. 50? 60? 100? Who knows. For those of you who have wanted to see the new Drake Cooper office space, here’s a chance to do it.
And, for those who are outside of the Boise area, or can’t make it on Friday, you can still get involved (although you’ll miss out on the Friday morning treats). Just order one online by the 20th and have it delivered to them.
