  "The number of radio airings was pretty phenomenal, ranking up there with our larger announcements with 3500 hits on stations across the country. This was due in large part to Kim Gordon's fine presentation and spokesperson skills... The TV tour also performed well, with 42 airings on roughly 30 total stations. I think you'll see from the enclosed tapes what a great job Kim did in getting in our product messaging and sticking to the plan of seamlessly weaving in our messages unobtrusively as part of the story. In some really notable cases Kim did an excellent job of leading the interviewers back to the subjects she wanted to discuss when they strayed."

Jennifer Chu, eBay Inc.

"This mornings SMB satellite television tour was a success. Kim Gordon connected with 15 stations and conducted a generic interview for wider distribution. Kim was even smoother than on the radio tour, consistently working Nortel Networks, Unified Networks, and the 800-number into context that will help promote segment use. Highlights included crisp interviews with CONUS All News Channel, stations in Los Angeles, Boston and Detroit, and a great live interview on the "Minding Your Business" segment on the Indianapolis Fox affiliate.
