2010 Hall of Fame: Bob Sacks
He also has since co-founded mediaIDEAS, a research and strategic publishing-industry consulting company. "When I write and when I vent, it is visceral. … It's been a really excellent balance-counterbalance because I participate in the analytical research," says Sacks of his mediaIDEAS involvement. "Now I can scientifically substantiate my emotional reactions to where I think the industry is going. … It's been a win-win for mediaIDEAS, a win-win for me, and a win-win for the publishing community."
"Through all the years in various segments of our industry, Bob has maintained the same level of excellence," says Cobb. "He possesses a combination of integrity, intelligence, common sense, flexibility, sincerity, humor, vision and leadership that engenders loyalty and brings out the best in others. And aren't the best players the ones who not only perform at the highest level consistently, but who … help the people around them to perform at levels higher than they otherwise might … ? That's Bob." PE
