Our newest sponsor is already famous.
Thank God for ibew1249.org, their new banner ad on ucommradio.com proudly displays their tagline: "on call to help 'em all." We will give our newest sponsor the proper introduction in next weeks show, but in the meantime check this out; In addition to providing union lineman sub contractor support to utility companies across the Empire State during emergencies, it seems that the hardworking members of IBEW 1249 have a bit of showmanship in their blood. Last year they strung a cable over Niagara Falls for tightrope walker Nik Wallenda. Nik was so pleased with their professionalism that he took 1249 members to Arizona to string a cable over the Grand Canyon! Noting that his life depends upon their preparations in selecting and rigging the cable, Nik says "(The) IBEW - the best of the best."
