Dr. Jonathan Zizmor is a New York City dermatologist
, famous for his television
, print, and mass transportation advertising.
In 1995, the MTA gave a five-year contract to Gannett, for handling advertisement leasing. Gannett spokesman Doug Watts classified Dr. Zizmor's ads as part of the "bottom-fishers."1 Dr. Zizmor considered suing the MTA and contacted Public Advocate Mark Green, because all of the ad space was allocated to block advertising, squeezing out small businesses. At the last minute, Gannett released 20% of panel space for small panel advertising. Dr. Zizmor said the legal threat may have forced it, but he believed Gannett just failed to sell the space.2
Other semi-interesting tidbits:
Pete Hamill suggested a New York Aptitude Test in the New Yorker, to test prospective public office candidates. One of the questions is "Who is Dr. Zizmor?"3
