Ted Leonsis shows alma mater some advertising love

Ted Leonsis (COL ’77), the owner of the Verizon Center, had a few words about the building’s new banner, which features senior guard Chris Wright.

“We want to support Georgetown basketball, too. They are tenants in the building,” Leonsis wrote on his blog. “I am on the board of directors of Georgetown and I am an alumnus of the College. Hence we mention Hoya basketball.”

The banner is a part of the “101 new improvements in 101 days” campaign Leonsis launched after purchasing the Verizon Center earlier this year.

Leonsis also owns three D.C. teams: the Wizards, the Capitals, and the Mystics.

  1. I dunno about you guys, but it looks to me like a list of what they care about most. And we’re in fifth, trailing behind the Mystics and Beyoncé. Just shows how much we mean to the Verizon Center, and how awful the place is for students, alums, and college basketball fans.
