Who At Google PR Booked Marissa Mayer on Local AM Radio?

It seems someone at Google PR thought it would be a good idea to book Vice President of Search Product and User Experience Marissa Mayer on a local morning drive AM radio show. The first question asked in the interview: How can we find naked pictures of you on the internet? Needless to say, Mayer wasn’t pleased.

Apparently, the interview was to generate interest and excitement about the new Google Audio service coming out. However, someone in the PR department clearly didn’t think things through, or at least didn’t prep Mayer for what the experience was going to be like.

The hosts were unapologetic. “Sorry we didn’t do just a pure sunshine-y, up with people commercial for your business that you didn’t pay for,” one said.
