Severino 'Tricks' Book Goes On Sale
October 26, 2009 at 12:01 PM (PT)
JON QUICK, former colleague and longtime target/sidekick of the late EMMIS-INDIANAPOLIS VP/GM TOM SEVERINO, has written a new book, "Tom Tricks," which chronicles his boss' pranks and adventures before he lost his battle with lung cancer earlier this year.
"Tom was many things -- a devoted family man, an innovative leader and broadcaster, a compelling story teller," EMMIS Chairman/CEO JEFF SMULYAN said. "As hard as he worked, he always had time to relax and enjoy life. One of his true loves was practical jokes. He delighted in keeping the office mood light, and truly embodied EMMIS’ 8th Commandment: Have fun -- don't take this too seriously."
Net proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated in TOM’s name to The Riley Children’s Foundation/Cancer Unit in INDIANAPOLIS. The book will be available in mid-NOVEMBER, and the web address for pre-orders is www.tomseverinobook.com.
