Kansas City Awards Season Starts With Drastically Scaled Down Pitch 'Best Of' Issue
They're working with a skeleton crew at The Pitch but still managed to do and EXCELLENT JOB with this year's 'Best Of' Issue that's proudly being forwarded among local social media denizens.
Because nobody but retirees, hobos, manic-depressives and people too lazy to train their dogs take the time to look at the print edition . . .
Most readers don't know that this year's 'Best Of' offering from The Pitch is one of their smallest issues ever.
Don't worry, TKC doesn't fall into any of those categories, I'm painting
my mom's basement TKC GLOBAL HEADQUARTERS and I needed something cheap free for the trim.
But I digress . . .
Long, long ago there controversy about pay-for-play Pitch write-ups which only really mattered to the obsessive-compulsive types who have been left behind by the current media epoch where EVERYTHING IS A COMMERCIAL . . . Hell, this whole blog is nothing more than a promo for day when TKC leaves it all behind to sing the blues on street corners and walk the Earth like Caine from Kung-Fu.
But I digress once again . . .
The point here is that once-a-year advertorial is an old school idea and smarter publishing outlets are now immersed in native ads, digital interstitial eye candy and outright sponsored content.
Meanwhile, we still have some affinity for the Pitch prizes just to remind Kansas City of its movers and shakers before everybody with a mobile phone became the biggest celebrity in the world.
Of course the people and places category is our fave and there's no blogger reference wherein two nobodies compete with KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY which is now much more active, influential and AWESOME than the people who still read the Pitch.
Still, take a look at some notables who really do deserve recognition . . .
