It's hard to beat Super Bowl Sunday


We got the beats

Another tradition of the Super Bowl is what happens when the teams take a break. Millions of people tune into the Super Bowl each year just to watch the commercials. Madison Avenue ad executives have elevated the commercial to an art form during the Super Bowl. This year a single 30-second spot during the Super Bowl will cost more than $4 million, and that’s just for the air time.

One commercial to look for this year is an advertisiment for Beats Music. A couple weeks ago The News published a story about Goshen native Ian Rogers, who over the past two decades has emerged as one the most revolutionary thinkers in the music industry. Rogers, a 1990 Goshen High School graduate, is the CEO of Beats Music, a streaming music service that launched on Jan. 21 and is backed by Dr. Dre, Jimmy Iovine and Trent Reznor. Ian was a good friend of mine in junior high and into high school. I have never met anyone who has a greater love and respect for music than Ian. Therefore, his success is no surprise to me.

Expect some prominent Beats Music commercials during this year’s Super Bowl. And check out the service on your smart phone or tablet at beatsmusic.com. It’s outstanding. I’ve been on since the launch and am blown away by its impact on my life. Follow me @wanbami71
