A couple years ago I wrote an article about young entrepreneurs in Maryland featuring Amanda Nachman, founder of the nationally circulated College Magazine. Since then the publication has grown considerably, and just recently Amanda and the College Magazine team poured their hearts and souls into a video for Oprah's OWN TV show competition.
The idea? To create a show for college students. Not long after College Magazine submitted their video to Oprah's contest, they received a response explaining that they included protected materials making them ineligible.
But it's a misunderstanding because College Magazine owns the rights to all the images in the video. According to Amanda, they've emailed, called and have even spoken with Oprah's OWN personnel. This left them with two options: do nothing or post their video to YouTube to see if they could get Oprah's attention.
If you think the video I've embedded above is as good as I do, show your support. Share the video with friends and/or leave a comment on the video posted to YouTube.
On a final note, I can't help but wonder if the College Magazine team should send this story to Kathy Griffin? We all know she's been trying to get Oprah's attention for years...
