What’s the going day rate for CD’s in mid-size markets like Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Minneapolis, etc.? Thanks so much. It’s been a while, so I have no idea!

Oh my gosh I feel like being “A CD in Cincinnatti” would be such a vibe. Now Im jealous.

@AD who are your clients? Whats it like? (Ima let you finish but) WKRP in Cincinnatti is my favorite show of all time.

I find it weird that you grouped Minneapolis with Pittsburgh and Cincinnati. Minneapolis is one of the bigger ad markets. I didn't even know Cincinnati and Pittsburgh had agencies.

It's not as famous these days, but for sure a bigger advertising market than places like Cincinnati (which, seriously, is there an agency there?). The work is generally not as good as it was back in the day. But is it anywhere?

Talking city size. NY, LA, CHI are all bigger cities. Minneapolis is a smaller city. Cost of living is generally less in a smaller city, so that would presumably impact day rate.

Chicago day rates are awful. They pay equal to or less than a Minneapolis.
