KOAM ad appears to take shot at KSN
"Accomplishment...more than just experience."
That's the tagline for KOAM's latest promotional ad featuring anchor Dowe Quick, who has been a fixture at the station for more than a quarter of a century. The ad mentions the honor recently awarded Quick at the Kansas Association of Broadcasters Convention, where he received the Sonny Slater Award for outstanding service to his station and community. The ad also mentions that Quick has received the prestigious Edward R. Murrow Award for broadcasting excellence.
The ad seems to be directed at the recent KSN advertising trumpeting the experience of their anchors Jim Jackson, Tiffany Alaniz, and Gary Bandy. The Jackson ad notes that he has covered more than 65,000 stories, which is accurate only if you equate reading stories with covering them.
