Zack Bolno "abruptly" leaves

Zach Bolno from PR "abruptly" left. Anyone know anything about this? Is this because the band played HTTR when the Ravens scored? Or is it related to AH? Or something else?

Interesting. Something tells me SmootSmack can shed some light on this...

Re: Zack Bolno "abruptly" leaves

I wonder if he was a Zorn man since he was hired about the same time. Didn't see t he game on TV only followed via NFL.com, so didn't see the band play HTTR when the Ravens scored. Not sure why he could get the band to play HTTR though for the wrong team. I mean wouldn't there be a lot of questions or a revolt?

Obviously I don't know everything that happened. What is not in dispute is that, after the Ravens scored a touchdown following the fake punt, the band played HTTR. Something strange happened.

Horrible. Did this have anything to do with the AH rumblings after the game?

Didn't AH do that in the locker room?

I doubt that the band is really PR related but who knows.

Yeah, I thought the band was run by the fans(band members) and just dealt with PR.

Re: Zack Bolno "abruptly" leaves

I'm not sure what led to his firing but by all accounts he is one of the best PR people in the biz judging from how many shoutouts he got on Twitter after being fired. I'd be wrong if I said people didn't enjoy working with him. From my limited understanding it sounds like PR people don't last very long with one company, although I don't understand what led to his firing. Just look at this post Steinberg put up about how many tweets he got. By all accounts everybody liked him and says he's one of the best PR guys out there.

During the Haynesworth "interview" last night, a PR guy had to step in and shut down the interview. Maybe it was Zack Bolno.......

Re: Zack Bolno "abruptly" leaves

Wow, that is pretty cold to fire the guy just for shutting down a dicey interview. Maybe some nasty words were exchanged between AH and the PR guy or the PR guy and the press.
