News and Sports Links – February 10, 2011

The Midwest is more than agriculture these days, thanks to Silicon Prairie News.



I’m working on two posts that is providing some challenges for me.  So while I’m hammering them out, here are a couple of news and sports links that raised a few eyebrows, if anyone noticed.

  • Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reports that the Baltimore Orioles are returning to powerhouse WBAL-AM 1090 radio in Baltimore after four years on the FM side (105.7 The Fan).  Add that to the St. Louis Cardinals’ return to KMOX-AM 1120. Does these moves signal that major leagues teams are returning to stronger AM stations that has helped their brand and popularity over the decades?
  • Lately, I’ve been reading Silicon Prairie News, a website that covers entrepreneurship and the new creative class in the “Silicon Prairie” (Omaha and Des Moines).  A new addition to SPN has been their Prairiecast shows, hosted by Geoff Wood and Andy Brudtkuhl.  This week, Alexander Grgurich of Foundry Coworking and Michael Ferrari of Smarty Pig were the guests.  If you want to know more about entrepreneurship and start-ups, SPN is the go-to site.

Mike Shannon and the Cardinals are returning to powerhouse KMOX radio.



Speaking of  Huff Post

As if Arianna needed the money.  She was already loaded before she created the vastly large news aggregate site.

Finally, Pete Jones of the popular Des Moines is Not Boring stops by Tony Lemmo’s new place, Gusto Pizza.   Pete’s verdict?  Well, I’ll let you read and decide for yourself.

That’s it for now, but enjoy Gusto’s viral commercial that had everyone talking prior to opening.

Get some!
