CHAMPION OUTDOOR MEDIA SERVICES, INC.
Incorporated in January of 1999, Champion Outdoor Advertising Media Services, Inc., hereinafter referred to as Champion, has been effectively involved in the advertising business since 1988. From 1988 to January of 2000 the principals of Champion were representing and managing outdoor advertising inventory and operated 98 bulletins faces (billboards) in the City of Tampa and the surrounding metropolis.
The clients, accustomed to the service and attention of Champion, began to seek Champion¹s representation and creative services for their outdoor advertising campaigns. Their campaigns at first started with traditional bulletin (billboard) advertising and quickly began to include all other types of outdoor advertising (see "Outdoor Advertising Basics").
