Can Learfield fetch $1Billion or more?

Screen Shot 2016-07-19 at 2.19.56 PMThat’s the question posed in a recent edition of Sports Business Journal. Before retiring three years ago, I worked for Learfield for 29 years. Not sure how many employees they had when I started in 1984 but in 1989 there were only 49 of us. Today, more than 1,000.

I’m guessing a billion dollars is not that much for a national media company but when I remember the little house on McCarty Street that was HQ when I started, it sound like a lot of money and I’m proud of the former co-workers who made it worth that much.
