Surprise, bemusement and, okay, a little wistful introspection:  my reaction to the news my great friend and creative collaborator Paul Fey and I are being inducted into the 2018 St. Louis Media Hall of Fame, as announced Nov. 7, 2017, by the St. Louis Media History Foundation.

Paul was the first to say it; “Maybe they think we’re dead.” Turns out they know we’re still alive. Whew.

Twenty other St. Louis media professionals are also among the 2018 inductees: a distinguished and inspiring list, as published by STLToday. The induction ceremony is March 17, 2018, in St. Louis, says the Foundation says on its Facebook page.

Paul and I teamed up in 1991 to create Paul & Walt Worldwide, the radio commercial boutique agency and production company. Paul served as President; I served as Executive Creative Director. The agency had offices in Hollywood, California and St. Louis. 

Says the Foundation, in citing us as inductees: “Paul and Walt quickly gained recognition and numerous ADDY and CLIO awards for their highly creative national radio campaigns for CBS-TV, NBC, King World, and many other clients.”  (You can hear some of them here.)

This is us back then. I’m on the right.

Paul is now President and Chief Creative Officer of World Wide Wadio in Hollywood, and I’m now consultant and copywriter here at Walt Now Consulting in St. Louis. 

With an attitude of gratitude.
