Media Beat: Gerry Graf on the Legend of Cliff Freeman

Media Beat is Mediabistro’s weekly interview series with high profile media professionals. For example, we’ve spoken with Morgan Spurlock, Dan Rather, Ken Auletta and others on the perennial subjects that make their work interesting.

Here, Graf talks about his attempts at getting into the Cliff Freeman agency &#151 and how the legendary ad-man’s style guided him to “Not going anywhere for awhile?” Didn’t know that was Graf’s line? Did you also know that he did the walk-of-shame through the CF offices, many times. You probably didn’t, so watch and find out more on that.

Update: We uploaded tomorrow’s video when we first published this story. No big deal &#151 here’s the interview on Freeman.

Check back tomorrow when we’ll ask Graf what it will take win Pizza Hut.
