Starbucks Marketing Chief Says $10M Morning Joe Buy “Way Off”

AdAge looks into the Starbucks/Morning Joe $10 million sponsorship deal first reported Sunday night. Starbucks’ chief marketer Terry Davenport tells AdAge that $10M estimate is “way off.”

“Anyone who’s been following our measured-media buying would know that figure would be a significant chunk of our spend,” adding that the MSNBC deal isn’t among Starbucks’ biggest initiatives of the year.

Meanwhile, Jon Stewart had some fun with the deal earlier this week.
