Taking the rap for spelling slip

Just when you think you’re really famous… You boast a huge global network of 60 offices in 30 countries with billings of over $2bn (£1.25bn). And yet, just to bring you down to earth, there’s always someone who remains to be enlightened.

I refer, of course, to your news story in last week’s issue – “Mediacom boss to launch Starcom Direct”. Diana Rhodes did indeed work with us on the media side and best of luck to her new venture.

It will come as some surprise to even her, however, that she worked for WWAV Wrap Collins Media. Stan Rapp clearly has some work to do on his profile.

Oh well, perhaps the Wrap was a Freudian slip. After all, we always have everything covered at WWAV.
