Nice interview Andy

Andy’s interview on Atlanta & Company was really well done. He talks some about the NYCBSA and what he does with Creative Loafing, etc. Anyway, check it out for yourself.

    does anyone know if this interview or the like are being paid for by Creative Loafing? I remember hearing how Atlanta & Company relies on paid content …unscripted advertorials/interviews where people pay a couple grand to be on there… and since they just did Hollis and the interview i saw was a lot about the Loaf, I was wondering if this was part of a deal. I’m guessing they’d disclose it if it was so I’m assuming it isn’t.

    I found two mentions of this in the AJC… here and here.

    Daniel – Thank you. You’re very kind for not mentioning how slouchy I was. I’m so getting a back brace next time I go on.

    My understanding is that most Atlanta & Company guests pay to be on the show. For example, I think there was spot by Harry & David after I was on. I’m guessing they paid for that. But it’s just a guess. I didn’t ask.

    There was no money or bartering involved in my appearance. I didn’t pay. CL didn’t pay. I wasn’t paid, either by the show or by the events I mentioned. I can never accept money or gifts promote an event. Darned ethics!

    The producer of Atlanta & Company contacted me directly and never spoke to anyone at Creative Loafing. I’m a freelance writer, not an employee of CL. I informed CL that I was doing the show, so they knew, but they had nothing to do with it.

    Obviously, ATL&Co. called me because of what I do for CL and I’m happy to mention to CL often since they give me the ink and paper. But it wasn’t a advertising thing.

    You should e-mail Hollis and ask about her arrangement. I suspect that they just had her on because they like her. She’s a great guest — really energetic and funny.
