Published January 5, 1996
The AZ Office of Tourism, which ran TV spots during broadcasts of the Copper Bowl from Tucson and Fiesta Bowl from Tempe, reports big response from a toll-free number shown in both. Sara Hammond reports in this morning's ARIZONA DAILY STAR that the three-minute "infomercial" about the state that ran during ESPN's December 27 Copper Bowl coverage generated 6,546 calls, with the 30-second spot during Tuesday's CBS Fiesta Bowl coverage generating 500 inquiries (ARIZONA DAILY STAR, 1/5).
