Spotlight September Recap


Just when summer is winding down, Spotlight is amping up! This September has graced us with some beautiful weather, and the fall colors are starting to dot the foliage. 

This September has given Spotlight Media a lot of avenues of celebration!

We saw three significant anniversaries this month. Spotlight Account Executive Al Anderson celebrates his three-year anniversary!

Spotlight September Recap Pauls 10th


But Paul Hoefer takes the cake! Paul celebrates his decennial this month. That’s ten years in action!

Paul has done a lot with his ten-year tenure at Spotlight! He has had the honor of speaking at the Niche Media Conference not once but TWICE! 

You can expect to see Paul at the Spotlight Tent at the WE FEST Country Music Festival, having a honky-tonk of a time.


Spotlight September Recap Pauls Girls


Did you know that Paul has triplet daughters!? His little girls made an appearance in Bison Illustrated for One Herd. When Paul started at Spotlight Media, his girls were just starting school, but they are now high schoolers this year! The Spotlight family runs deep.

Spotlight Media would like to thank Al, Nick, Paul, and the entire Spotlight team for everything they do to bring enticing content and rock-solid marketing to the community.
