MILE HIGH'S MARLBORO MAN RIDES INTO SUNSET IN DENVER
After "more than two decades" at Mile High Stadium, the
city of Denver has "snuffed out" a sign featuring the
Marlboro Man, according to Alan Snel of the DENVER POST.
The city had received $265,000 a year for the Marlboro ad
space, but it was removed because of Denver Mayor Wellington
Webb's "opposition to tobacco." Snel reports that the city
is now selling space in the stadium to the Broncos, who have
bought five panels for $57,500 annually, and are free to
market the space for future ad revenue (DENVER POST, 9/17).
