John Landsburg has been a strong resource in this market. A veteran PR guy with great access and great integrity enabled people in one part of media know what was going on in other parts of the local media. The market used to be 4 TV stations and maybe 6 radio stations or merit and the newspaper….Now, the market is enormous and it is easy to lose track of what is going on in terms of personnel and errors/gaffes/or outright lies. John and Bottomline helped keep everybody more honest.
He would not run away from a fight. Sometimes he was right, and sometimes he was wrong…but he was right a lot more often….
Good luck in SC….remember even after you are there for 20+ years, you will still be the new kid.
