Here’s a great little story from Tim Marren in the US&J blog …
Well, apparently we ticked off some people associated with the Molson Canal Concert Series here in Lockport by listing the concerts in Thursday’s paper. Aw shucks.
From David Ulrich via e-mail: “Since you did not wait until Friday per your email we lost the front cover of Gusto – circulation 250,000.”
Tim goes on to explain that the concert organizer, Kathy Paradowski, had sent the list of bands to all the media … except the Union Sun. So when the US&J got it – thinking they were being burned by Paradowski – they ran it.
What Tim didn’t know is that Paradowski hadn’t sent that list to WLVL either.
But they wanted the Buffalo News to get first dibs.
Tim Marren and I were two of this concert series’ biggest cheerleaders … and the organizer wanted to hand deliver a scoop to the Buffalo News, which, to my knowledge had not promoted the idea of this concert.
I wonder if this is what we’re in for?
Fortunately for the US&J … Mayor Mike Tucker shared the list with them … and fortunately for WLVL, we had an interview with Tucker scheduled for 6:30 this morning … and he dished to us.
I just think this Paradowski is strange … wanting to put Lockport on the Map … and ignoring Lockport’s two media outlets while doing it.
