Is Q101 Using Comment Spam to Promote New Show?

That question was asked by CK in a comment on an earlier post on the Steve Dahl- -Garry Meier reunion. An earlier commentator, “Jason” had posted a comment, “Have you seen” followed by a link to something about what’s wrong in Chicago. CK was miffed that the link was, apparently, merely a promo for a new program on Chicago’s Q101.

“Jason” registered with an email address that appears to belong to someone named Tommy King. Turns out, the director of marketing for Q101 is named Tommy King. So, what do you say Q101 GM Marv Nyran and Emmis Communications CEO Jeff Smulyan and– is sock puppet comment spam your new marketing tool?

  1. Sounds like this “Yes Sir” puppet “Tommy King” is a real creative marketing genious. Whats the next promo ? “Guess the Jocs favorite color”
