WAPC and POP on WEAR for Call to Artists

     Sue Straughn - WEAR Channel 3


Tim Brooks represented the Wide Angle Photo Club on WEAR Channel 3 Dayside with Sue Straughn at 11:00 AM Thursday, May 5.  I believe there were some reruns of the spot later in the day.

In her usual amazing manner, Sue took me through questions about the Call to Artists as the channel displayed former POP winners and our URL.  Sue and WEAR have been great sponsors and supporters of the Power of Photography® Show & Exhibit for many years. 

We have had emails and increased web site traffic since the showing.  I have asked WEAR to provide us with a video of the clip.  Please send me any feedback if you saw the spot.  I may ask WEAR to have us on the week before the show.  I'm enjoying the Publicity position for POP and are looking forward to a successful show.
