- According to recent reports, two-thirds of kids in the 8-to-18 age range now own cell phones, perhaps representing a doubling in volume since 2005.

Whether or not that number rows at the same rate as the whole cell-phone market making the switch, it’s clear that you can reach that young, desirable audience on the go.

- The Fantasy Consultant, Nathan Zegura, got a visit from Ashton Kutcher on Friday to talk some Bears on his first show for the SIRIUS XM fantasy sports channel. (Zegura and Kutcher do an in-season fantasy football show for the Web.)
