Michael Keller Marketing Manager for Made Possible in Lehigh Valley.

In our final qurantine series interview as we move into Yellow we’ll put up another post wrapping them up) we talk with Michael Keller, Marketing Manager for Made Possible in Lehigh Valley.

The Made Possible in Lehigh Valley campaign seeks to increase outside awareness of the positive attributes Lehigh Valley has to offer, develop a positive image of the region, and market it as an attractive place to live, visit and locate a business.

Northampton Grad, Comedian Jonny Loquasto

We talk high school, Covid, and Orlando with Northampton Grad, WWE Announcer, Comedian Jonny Loquasto! “Jonny Loquasto began life in the lovely town of Northampton, Pennsylvania.

He ate everything put in front of him as a child and topped it all with tartar sauce, eventually tipping the scales at 165 lbs in 6th grade. Obsessed with sports, JL convinced himself that he was going to be the next Charles Barkley.” – https://jlocomedy.com/bio.htm

he always pleasant Frederick Koons III, AVP, Marketing and Digital Strategy at KSA&D joins us to talk “pivoting” a lot, but also what small businesses can do during this time to continue their marketing.

We show off how businesses such as Potts’ Hot Dogs are selling facemasks as part of their marketing “pivot”. What can we expect this summer?

This is a fun one with a lot of different topics. While it is Memorial Day and not Veterans Day, we’d still like to thank Fred for his service. He is a Retired Staff Sergeant with the US Army who served three tours to Iraq & Afghanistan

Zeke Zelker, Filmmaker

Filmmaker Zeke Zelker gives his thoughts on creativity during the quarantine, how he thinks movie theatres can open now, facial hair, and walking through the corn fields.

Zelker’s organization, Art Spark, will be dropping off bags of art supplies and other goodies to over 60 students throughout the Valley who have been selected to participate in Community Canvas.

The students are asked to create a piece of art work based on the healthy living assembly the Art Spark team hosted at various schools this past winter and spring.

Thanks, Zeke! 

Seth Witcher, Musician

Seth Witcher, one of the Lehigh Valley’s brightest young musicians, lets us in on the source to his optimism and we learn why he left Lehigh to pursue a career in music.

So far, it’s going well! He recently won a deal with Sony and he’s ready to get back to gigging in person (safely, of course).
