Hug It Out...
December 5, 2008 9:14 AM
I can say I’ve seen it all. The first big component of TVWeek’s Road to NATPE coverage, our Syndication Roundtable, produced one of the biggest surprises I’ve ever seen in my survey of industry coverage: true fellowship between one of the massive TV syndicators and one of the upstarts. During the roundtable, Debmar-Mercury Co-President Mort Marcus gave CBS Television Distribution’s “The Doctors” huge respect for building ratings since it launched. His praise was so effusive that CBS TV Distribution boss John Nogawski got out his chair, walked over to Mort, and gave him a huge hug. Wow… I repeat, wow.
