This week on our Under The Influence Summer Series:
Advertising Alumni

This week, it’s the final show of our 2018 Summer Series.

In this episode, we look at famous people who began their careers in advertising. Many of the people who have gone on to shape popular culture, cut their teeth in the world of marketing. From Dr. Seus, Salman Rushdie and Bob Newhart, to Sir Alec Guinness – yes, Obi-Wan Kenobi himself – they all spent their formative years writing copy.

Each learned some valuable skills on their way to the top. And their stories are remarkable.

Tune in Mondays at 7:30pm and Saturdays at 11:30am on CBC Radio One or subscribe to our podcast.

Hope you’ll join us.
