Cable Guy And Rob Miller Respond To Good Words About Hard Work
October 21, 2014
I have to admit that when I wrote the article about how our Industry, Radio, helped a young comedian named Dan Whitney, aka "Larry the Cable Guy," become famous, that I was flabbergasted when he responded to me personally via Twitter.
What I loved about his response was not the fact that he acknowledged that he had seen the article, but that he appreciated the fact that someone understood that his success didn't come by way of fluke, but by hard work, building one brick upon another brick, sometimes even causing heartburn, which makes his TV endorsements for Prilosec so appropriate.

"I have to say that it was very kind of you to acknowledge the efforts of the KTU team and for so eloquently recounting some of the best moments that were pillars in KTU's rebuilding and evolution process. …what KTU has done has been noticed by a few smart folks in the industry, including you.
KTU and Z100 have worked together to deliver an incredible one-two punch and it takes an incredible amount of discipline to keep both brands thriving, while holding off competitors. What keeps us going every day is that we love what we do and the dream of being successful.
Just wanted to say thank you for the nice article. Hope we can meet each other in the future."
P.S. That Superman pic you included with my headshot will haunt me for months to come.

I don't let my subjects know that I am writing about our shared experiences. Instead, I just write what I recall, and when it is done, sometimes, I will get a nice response such as this.
Again, what I love about Rob Miller's response is not the actual recognition, but the efforts, passion and hard work he reveals in that response. Success doesn't happen by accident, and with Larry the Cable Guy and Rob Miller, it is evident that commitment to hard work got both of them there.
