Jacobs Media Honors Mr. Skin As 'Most Innovative'
August 22, 2014 at 5:00 AM (PT)
Each week, JACOBS MEDIA honors an "innovative" member of our business.
TODAY (8/22) they write, "The growth of the Internet has affected radio in infinite ways, including the creation of many unique partnerships. None is as interesting as the ongoing relationship between radio and MRSKIN.COM founder JIM MCBRIDE. It was CONFUCIUS who said, 'Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life'. JIM typifies that sentiment, building a multi-media empire powered by broadcast radio, while pursuing a path he is truly passionate about."
JACOBS CONTINUES, "You might remember MRSKIN.COM from the pivotal role the brand played in the 2007 JUDD APATOW movie 'Knocked Up'. SETH ROGEN’s character spends most of his time in the movie trying to develop a website that specializes in celebrity nude scenes, only to learn -- too late -- that someone got there first. That someone, of course, was MR. SKIN."
