Embracing Innovation and Generational Stories with Kevin Reilly Jr. | Digital & Dirt Podcast
As you know, we do not typically recommend many of the OOH podcasts because, well, many of the ‘hosts’ are damn weak absolute noobs posing as OOH ‘Experts’. On the other hand, we have also made clear our belief and support of Lamar Advertising’s Ian Dallimore who simply paid his dues, learning the business from the ground up and frankly, knows his shit.
Ian does his ‘show’ via his Digital and Dirt (DD) Podcast.
OK that’s off my chest. This long-winded intro brings us to sharing a standout Double D podcast hosting former Lamar hands on, older brother, Harvard grad, big dog, Kevin Reilly Jr. He is Executive Chairman of Lamar Advertising.
