I’ve been experimenting with using Prezi as a new presentation module alternative to the typical Powerpoint presentation you see so often in the business world. This presentation was oriented towards political, using our basic media kit, but adding in some political statistics and information. Take a look, and let me know what you think!
Here is the Florida Communication Group Research Department’s Key Economic Indicators report for the Tampa Bay market in first quarter 2010. We are definitely seeing some nice indicators of improvement across the board. Home sales, automotive sales and retail sales are showing growth, while the Tampa Bay unemployement rate is down slightly from the highs of the last two months.
Unemployment rates continue to be high in the Tampa Bay market – ending the first quarter with a 12.7% rate. However, that 12.7% is down about 1/2 a percentage point from highs of 13.2% seen in January and February of this year.
Total home sales are on the rise, up by 18.5% in Hillsborough County
Number of Homes Sold in Hillsborough County
Taxable retail sales were down for the 1st quarter by 2.6% in the Tampa Bay DMA and by 4.5% in Hillsborough County. However, one positive trend was retail sales for March 2010 which showed a slight increase of 1.7% in both the Tampa DMA and in Hillsborough County – the first monthly increase in more than two years.
Each year, WFLA partners with All Children’s Hospital to air a weekend-long telethon. The 2010 All Children’s Hospital Telethon this past weekend was one of the biggest celebrations in their 27-year history.
In these difficult economic times, WFLA helped raise
for All Children’s Hospital, a testimony to our combined talents, platforms, hard work and dedication. There is no one in the country that can annually put on 22 continuous hours of television for 27 years as professionally and flawlessly as we can.
Since 1984 we have raised almost $74 million dollars for All Children’s Hospital and year after year we are constantly honored as one of the top producing markets for the Children’s Miracle Network.
