If Howard Stern is the self-proclaimed “King of All Media,” well, then I must at least be a Duke. Maybe an Earl.
Okay, how about Court Jester?
Reason being is that exactly one year after leaving the newspaper biz to try my hand at public relations, I’m embarking this week on yet another media adventure.
I’m joining the cast of Mad Men.
Okay, not really.
But on Tuesday, I am beginning a job as a writer for a suburban advertising-marketing firm. My new company bills itself as agency of innovation, and being the innovative sort myself, I’m excited about the opportunity.
I look forward to embracing this realm of the media industry. Particularly so, because in many ways, it’s my final frontier.
As I wrote back in May after my 15 seconds of fame on E! THS Investigates, I’ve now worked for newspapers, big and small, both in print and online. I’ve written sports, features and hard news. I’ve been a reporter, an editor and a columnist. I’ve done PR, been interviewed on TV (not only for E!, but a Polish television station, as well — long story), had my own radio segment and published a book.
Oh, and yeah, I also blog.
Once I get the hang of this advertising-marketing thing, I figure that when it comes to meida, I literally will have just about done it all.
Except for movies.
Still need to get one of those under my belt some day, I suppose.
Who knows, maybe if Mad Men ever goes to the big screen, I can be an extra.
Then again … maybe not.
