  • My dad, both my sisters and I all worked on college newspapers. I worked on one during a not-so-great time in the economy. Granted, we were on the Vanderbilt campus, but the retailers and major national advertisers who bought space on our pages weren’t: and what we had trouble with more often than not was finding space for the news amongst the ads. We sold the heck outta that paper.

    My dad was the business manager of the same paper in the mid/late 60s and has many amusing stories about selling ads for a college paper. Let’s just say, the man’s a natural salesman.
