SECONDS OF LIMELIGHT: One thing leads to another for Chris Hundley, owner of Limousine Connection in Los Angeles. After he was quoted in an Associated Press article about high gas prices that went viral, he got a call from NBC to do an interview for its Feb. 27 edition of NBC Nightly News. Hundley appears for a few seconds in a report on rising gas prices and how they affect fleet and delivery businesses. He told LCT that he hosted an NBC News crew during the day which shot some footage of him and his vehicles in North Hollywood, Calif., where Limousine Connection is based.
While just a brief clip, such exposure for an operator goes a long way in establishing credibility and authority -- some of the best P.R. for a business. And NBC Nightly News is the top-rated evening newscast in the U.S., with more viewers than comparable newscasts on all the 24-hour cable news channels. -- Martin Romjue, LCT editor
