A story in the April 23 issue contained an error. Susanna Schuler is interim news director at WROC-TV 8, and Duane Lammers is interim general manager.
Another story in the April 23 issue incorrectly stated that Paychex Inc. received venture-capital financing prior to going public.
Selkowitz Inc. Marketing Communications Consulting’s capitalized billings did not fall by 50 percent from 1997 to 1998, as reported in the same issue. Using the same formula (net income times 6.67) that other agencies used for the 1997 list, Selkowitz’s capitalized billings would be $17.6 million, not $44 million, and the agency would have placed 12th on the 1997 list. The agency used gross income times 6.67 as the formula for its 1997 capitalized billings. For 1998, Selkowitz reported $22.4 million in capitalized billings and ranked ninth on the April 23 list of advertising agencies.
