Self promotion…

There was a time when doing a good job was enough to get noticed and get ahead. No more. You have to do a good job and tell people you’re doing a good job…often to the extreme. It’s true in almost every endeavor. Look at any of the news and/or entertainment vocations. For example in 30 minutes of news, how much of it is used to promote what is “coming up” or how well the station believes it has covered earlier stories? This is true in the print-media, radio and television. For me as a long-time WSB-Television reporter, sports and its athletes are the most irritating. But then, I’m among those who believe that if you hit a home-run, or run into or make a spectacular catch in the end zone, act like you’ve done this before.
