If you've driven Clarksville's major roads, you've seen the billboards. If you've listened to 102.5, "The Party" or WJZM's broadcast of high school football games, you've heard the radio spots. But unless you have a teenager in the house, you may have missed the latest TV ad.

"The spots are airing on network and cable shows with heavy teen viewership," says marketing manager Debbie Denton, "since that's who we're trying to reach with this campaign." High school students typically begin looking at prospective colleges in the fall of the previous year.

"The spot capitalizes on teen's appreciation of humor," adds Dennie Burke, executive director of marketing and public relations, "and with a theme of 'Get Real,' it reflects our recognition of their desire for realism."

Here's a full list of networks and shows on which the ad was scheduled to run.
