I talk a lot about brand names. Because a great brand name makes everything easier.
We have great brand names in Memphis. FedEx, although the company originally didn’t want people saying FedEx, is a great brand. Federal gave the brand credibility in its earliest days. Auto Zone, though not the original name, is a strong brand. Better, I think, than the original, Auto Shack. LifeBlood’s a classic.
A great brand name you’ve probably never given a thought about is WKNO. Think about it. Public broadcasting in America has been a fact since the early Twentieth Century.
