Dave Logan invades Tom Martino's territory with TeamDaveLogan.com
There could be some tension at the next Clear Channel Denver staff meeting. Dave Logan, longtime voice of the Broncos and co-host of the KOA afternoon-drive program The Ride Home (as well as a former high school athlete recently honored as being one of the fifty best ever by Parade magazine), is launching a new website called TeamDaveLogan.com, which will specialize in home-improvement referrals. The new enterprise is scheduled to launch on June 1 -- the very same day that fellow Clear Channel Denver personality Tom Martino is slated to debut Martino TV, which will charge businesses to receive his de facto endorsement.
Actually, though, Logan's project more closely resembles another Martino operation, ReferralList.com. Like that site, TeamDaveLogan.com promises to put its stamp of approval on only the best firms in the field, and to help resolve problems when they crop up. But company spokeswoman Lori Grey says Logan's site will emphasize a team concept -- having contractors with certain skill sets recommend other specialists who are also affiliated with TeamDaveLogan.com.
Grey adds that Logan won't be talking about the business on his radio show, unlike Martino. And he won't be trading on his reputation as a consumer advocate and television reporter, as does the self-proclaimed "Troubleshooter," who denies being a "journalist" despite regularly playing one on TV. For that reason, the ethical issues that Martino's actions have long raised don't really apply in Logan's case. It'll be interesting to see if his new enterprise cuts into Martino's action -- and how Big Tom reacts.

We're about giving the best home product and service providers a winning home field where they can combine their strengths and build lasting relationships with each other and the valued customers they serve."

General Sales Manager, Lori Grey believes that this team concept is exactly what good businesses and tough economic times call for, "Team Dave Logan brings out the best in business. We don't do home improvement, but we help the top professionals in this arena achieve the highest result for themselves and their customers now and in the future."
