I love unicorns. Who doesn't?
There's the backstory.
We have a sponsor for our newscasts. Here is the sponsor sheet as I see it from the anchor chair.
I know, it's hard to see. I've always had good eyes but lately, I've been thinking about getting some reading glasses. Whenever I put on someone's reading glasses I see things so much clearer! (Not the last time you'll be reading this post and think...Jackass)
So, here it is a little closer.
See that sponsor at 15:28 (3:30pm)? I thought I did during the newscast. I said on the air, "News brought to you by Unicorn Global." As I continued on with the news I thought, "Cool! A company calls itself UNICORN GLOBAL! That's pretty awesome." But by the time I got to the end of the cast I had turned on myself, "There's no way that's a company. That would be stupid. Why would you think that?" I took a closer look and realized it said Unicom Global. You know, only one of the most massive software companies IN THE WORLD.
So, no Shannon. I'm pretty sure a company that helps out Fortune 500 companies with software solutions DOESN'T CALL ITSELF UNICORN GLOBAL! Here's more. Read on. I'll be shopping for glasses.
Founded in 1981 by one man with a single software product, today UNICOM® Global consists of more than twenty-five corporate entities encompassing a wide range of businesses including Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A), Real Estate Development, Business and Financial Services and a range of Information Technology (IT) Divisions. The IT Divisions deliver world-class solutions in software, hardware, professional and educational services and outsourcing, co-location and facilities management services for Fortune 500 and Global 2000 clients worldwide.
A privately-held firm under the stewardship of its original founder, Corry S. Hong, UNICOM Global continues to grow dramatically through a savvy combination of organic growth and strategic M&A activities. UNICOM continues to target mature and growing mid-cap NASDAQ and London Stock Exchange AIM compaines for integration and growth strategies.
