... AND THE NEXT ITEM, A BEAUTIFUL OLYMPIC LAPEL PIN
Published March 27, 1995
ACOG signed on home shopping network QVC as a licensee in early March to produce "at least nine hour-long, Olympic-themed sales pitches." The first of the shows, which aired on March 7, was very successful selling out its "entire inventory" of Olympic lapel pin sets "before the show aired." And, although neither QVC or ACOG would release sales figures, both parties "profess delight over the relationship." The network plans to "pick from hundreds of products" produced by some 80 ACOG licensees and 42 USOC licensees for each of its programs (Melissa Turner, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 3/26).
