But this spot from WINK, the CBS affiliate in Ft. Myers, Fla., owned by Ft. Myers Broadcasting, takes that idea and turns it on its head.

News ratings aren’t won during sweeps, they are only measured then. So what is your station doing to heighten awareness about your news product?
Every ratings period, the Market Share blog calls for you to share your sweeps promos and the stories they promote.

So please send me links or embed codes (embed codes will be the death of me) to your promo examples and the stories they promote.
