I love those make nice statements the PR people at Dish and Direct, as well as those of the station groups put out. They merely select the appropriate word group, i.e, “We’re very pleased to announce….”; “We look forward to a long and mutually rewarding relationship that allows our audiences in xxx markets to continue to enjoy award winning, top rated local news…”. I could go on. I think you all ‘get’ it! Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays…
