David J. Baldwin, 50, of Northeast Philadelphia, former director of local advertising at The Inquirer, died Thursday, July 3, of colon cancer. "Everyone he met was a friend," said his wife, Joanne. "He would do anything for anybody. " Mr. Baldwin was passionate about his children and hockey. "My whole house is hockey, hockey, hockey," said Joanne Baldwin, whose family could always be found at a Flyers game. Mr. Baldwin didn't just attend games. He coached hockey at Archbishop Ryan High School in Philadelphia and served on the board of directors at the Parkwood Youth Organization, where he also coached soccer.

Bus riders and others could see 600 new shelters throughout Philadelphia, along with dozens of new newsstands and kiosks promoting the city's arts and culture scene, if City Council approves a 20-year advertising contract. A deal with New York-based Titan Outdoor L.L.C. would give the company the right to design, install, maintain, and sell advertising on the 600 shelters - replacing the city's current stock 318 and adding 282 - and dozens of newsstands, cultural information kiosks, and benches.

CITY COUNCILWOMAN Blondell Reynolds Brown wants to clear up some myths about her school-property advertising bill. Brown said that since it moved successfully out of committee earlier this month, she's been getting hit with a hailstorm of concerns from constituents about the content of the ads. The measure still must pass the full Council next year. As now written, the bill would prohibit commercial displays on any school property that has historic value, and would ban ads featuring alcohol or tobacco.

INDIANAPOLIS - Super Bowl spots are still the hottest ticket in advertising. Comcast Corp.-owned NBC has sold all the commercial airtime for the Feb. 5 game in Indianapolis and even has a waiting list of advertisers. The average cost for a 30-second spot this year was $3.5 million, with some time slots costing as much as $4 million. Seth Winter, senior vice president of NBC Sports group sales and marketing, said in a recent interview that the last time slot was sold just after Thanksgiving.

The city is targeting more than 450 illegal advertising benches on sidewalks throughout Philadelphia, with a plan to remove them and fine their owners beginning next week. The concrete-and-wood benches are regarded as safety hazards and eyesores by the city, said acting Streets Commissioner David Perri. After originally planning to begin Saturday, the city Thursday decided to give owners five more days to voluntarily remove them. A four-member Streets Department crew, using a flatbed truck and front-end loader, is scheduled to begin confiscating the benches Thursday.

From grass turf to the video stream inside your home, Comcast Corp. will have a hand in Super Bowl XLIX between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks. "Top-to-bottom, it's really a Comcast event," John Page, president of Comcast-controlled Global Spectrum, said of the Feb. 1 NFL championship. Global Spectrum, part of Comcast-Spectacor and based at the Wells Fargo Center in South Philadelphia, manages the state-of-the-art University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., where 12,000 people are expected to work on game day - opening the gates for fans, shuttling the Katy Perry halftime show on and off the gridiron stage in the allotted time, and managing security.

TWO predictions: One, the day is coming, and soon, where North American teams will have advertising logos on their uniforms. And, two, nobody will care. Every sport is on a full-time mission to squeeze every buck it can out of the business. I mean, it has gotten to the point where the NFL is apparently considering moving the annual Super Bowl media day from Tuesday morning/afternoon to Monday night in primetime on the East Coast - apparently on the theory that if people will watch three days worth of draft coverage, and endless repetitions of players performing the shuttle run at the combine, they'll watch anything.

Dan Roitman's company is called Stroll , a most ill-fitting name. From a growth perspective at least, Stroll's evolution has been anything but a leisurely pace. Born 12 years ago in a Maryland dorm room, the Center City company is an impressive display of the potential of any small business, though perhaps in the extreme. In just the last year, its revenue has exploded from $17 million to $40 million, with another doubling expected by the end of 2012. Profit growth was 400 percent last year, Roitman said.

TO AVOID HEADACHES over potentially offensive advertisements, SEPTA officials are set to further tighten advertising criteria. Today, the transit agency's board will consider requiring that advertisers be liable for any legal fees incurred from an advertisement. That includes lawsuits or "any adverse actions such as damage to our vehicles that could be caused by the ad," SEPTA spokeswoman Jerri Williams said. The amendment on the table includes highly specific criteria like banning ads for the sale of tobacco or firearms.

The old bronze-doored art deco headquarters building on Philadelphia's Washington Square is condos now. But the words, wrought by copywriters and blazoned on TV and magazines by art directors at the pioneering ad agency N.W. Ayer & Son (1869-2002) still echo: A diamond is forever Be all you can be Never underestimate the power of a woman Half a century and more after they were hired at Ayer, a generation after the last of its local staff moved to New York (the name vanished later, in a merger)

The Phillies boarded a plane for Philadelphia last Thursday. They had scored three or fewer runs in 17 of their 31 spring-training games. Perhaps their offensive struggles would be left behind. Those thoughts were quickly dispelled Monday with a listless 8-0 loss to Boston on opening day. The Phillies mustered just three hits, tied for their all-time lowest opening-day output. It was their first scoreless season opener since 1998. The team's first three batters - Ben Revere, Odubel Herrera, and Chase Utley - combined to go 0 for 12 with four strikeouts.

CITY COUNCILMAN Kenyatta Johnson wants the Bellevue garage at Broad and Locust streets removed from a bill that would create special zoning for six-story, full-motion 3-D digital advertising structures called urban experiential displays. "When this legislation was first proposed, I was open to the idea because the businesses on the Avenue of the Arts supported it as a way to fund improvements and activities on the avenue," the 2nd District councilman told the Daily News in a statement yesterday.

What can brown do for you? It turns out a lot, according to a new marketing theme. Package-delivery giant United Parcel Service Inc., known for its brown trucks and uniforms, has a new global advertising campaign to let businesses know that it does more than deliver parcels. The 107-year-old company is replacing its marketing campaign, "We Love Logistics," with the slogan "United Problem Solvers," which will appear in TV commercials during the NCAA men's basketball tournament this month and in print and digital ads in the United States, China, Germany, Mexico, and the United Kingdom.

The Federal Trade Commission sued DirecTV in federal court on Wednesday, claiming deceptive advertising by failing to adequately disclose price increases in the second year of two-year pay-TV contracts and hundreds of dollars in early-cancellation fees. The satellite TV operator also does not clearly tell subscribers that they have to cancel premium channels when free promotion periods end or they will be charged for the channels, the government claimed in the suit, filed in San Francisco.

Last season the 76ers, who usually keep their opinions to themselves, made it known about their affinity for Andrew Wiggins before the NBA draft. The high flier from Kansas was taken first by the Cleveland Cavaliers, who traded him to Minnesota in a three-team deal that included the Sixers. Drafting third, the Sixers selected Wiggins' Kansas teammate, center Joel Embiid, who has not played this season because of a foot injury. Wiggins will make his first appearance in Philadelphia on Friday when the Timberwolves visit the Wells Fargo Center.
