Good Question About Gray Clip Sales

Mark Kraft from Columbus News Clips asked a good question recently so I wanted to pass along this point of clarification. Our Gray license does require we charge no more than $99 for clips where the client was referred by Gray. This maximum charge does NOT apply to any other clients, though - just those referred by Gray.

Some Final Thoughts

I wanted to let everyone know that Doug Funk's father passed away yesterday morning. We appreciate your patience with NDS Support over the next few days. Our thoughts are with Doug and his family during this time.

I realized while talking with an affiliate yesterday that I neglected to mark my 30th anniversary in this industry! On 9/1/85, I opened VideoFile in Cleveland, Ohio. As with most people who've been around a long time, I've had several comings and goings over the last three decades (including 3 different last names!) but I'm a news junkie at heart, as I know many of you are, so I guess this business is just in my blood. Thanks to those of you who have put up with me for 30 years - I guess you're stuck with me now!

Hope everyone has a safe, happy and LONG Labor Day weekend!
