Showbiz Deluxe would like to apologize to our loyal readers that had anticipated our coverage and exclusive interview with Ms. Betty White at the Museum Broadcast Communications (MBC) grand opening gala this past week, June 12th in Chicago.
Upon arriving at the MBC, we were notified that our interview with Ms. White had been canceled due to scheduling conflicts and being overbooked from an entire day of phone interviews. We regret to share this inconvenience with our dedicated readers.
Showbiz Deluxe has executed extended press and promotion for the MBC’s grand opening gala and also allotted a full banner on our website for the past 3 months advertising the MBC’s ticket page to our readers. Upon hearing that the $500 tickets for their gala eventually SOLD-OUT, we were happy to hear the news and glad that we were able to aide the MBC in promoting the gala via Showbiz Deluxe.
Our various forms of correspondence to reach program director Marc Glick in regard to this unfortunate series of events have gone unanswered. We once again apologize to all of our supporters and readers who looked forward to the exclusive interview and coverage.
We take great pride in offering Ms. Betty White continued coverage on Showbiz Deluxe through the years; may she continue to be blessed with success in her exciting career!!
