    WBGO President and CEO, Cehpas Bowles, had the following to say about this exciting opportunity for WBGO, "Owing to Vice President for Operations and Engineering David Tallacksen’s awareness and personal initiative, WBGO will receive a brand new digital telephone system free of charge from Avaya.  In late summer 2009, the phone giant ran an online “communications makeover contest” asking businesses and non-profit organizations to tell them via video why they deserved a new telephone system.  David prepared a wonderful video, which was shot in one of our production studios, and laid out the rationale for a new station system.  Avaya liked what they saw and rewarded David’s work with one of 20 free phone systems.  I understand that there were almost 2,000 entrants nationwide.  The Avaya team traveled to WBGO on Friday, October 23 to make the announcement."

    Congratulations, big time, to David Tallacksen and to WBGO.
