The Press Release:
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that, building off of the successful Buffalo Bills pilot program, sports and entertainment events in major stadiums and arenas with a capacity of 10,000 or more people can re-open with limited spectators beginning February 23. Following the model established as part of the successful Buffalo Bills pilot program, venues and events must follow similar guidelines, including Department of Health approval for venues and events, capacity limitations, testing requirements, mandatory face coverings, temperature checks, and assigned, socially distanced seating.
The Department of Health’s work to inspect eligible venues statewide is already underway, and thanks to that work, the Barclays Center has been approved to re-open on February 23 for the Brooklyn Nets home game against the Sacramento Kings. The success of this, and similar events in approved venues over the coming weeks will help inform the re-opening process for smaller venues in the future.

The brand-building for Ken Pierce Media continued through the end of the 2020 and one of the things that we did for this initiative in early December was to create and launch an Official YouTube Channel. I apologize for only announcing it now as the 2021 year launches but there were other pieces of the puzzle that needed to be put in motion before I could do anything with this. A screenshot of the Official YouTube Channel for Ken Pierce Media is below for your perusal. As you can see, there aren’t any videos yet and only a mere handful of subscribers.
In the coming weeks I’ll be putting together the channels first video clip and I think that a good place to start will be with something like I did for both PiercingMetal and “The Chronicles” of Piercing Ken with those “Overview” videos. These are fun to do and help properly showcase the other areas that a brand is using. At this point in time, the Ken Pierce Media initiative has more than a handful of social networks working in tandem to help it grow. Now the thing about YouTube is that you CANNOT properly name a channel until you have 100 subscribers and from there its not until 1000 that your videos can earn you some advertising so please use the links below to visit and help support each of our three different mediums. The PiercingMetal Channel has been online the longest but never really emphasized until a couple of years ago and the other two are less than two months old apiece. We thank you for any of your support on this stuff and remember that we’d love for you to comment and help add to the mix as well. Stay tuned.
These days you just can’t seem to run a professional level medium of any kind without having an Official Facebook for your fans and curious onlookers to “Like” or “Follow”. When I first announced the existence of Ken Pierce Media as a Blogspot feed to the content of both PiercingMetal.com and “The Chronicles of Piercing Ken” (seen HERE for the latecomers), there wasn’t really a grand design. That blog was aimed at giving me some background on the software and then using it to my publishing advantage instead of just letting it sit there. So much has changed since then and this all brings me to present to you the “Official” Facebook for Ken Pierce Media.
Some of you might remember that a core part of this idea becoming a real side effort was based on a Facebook inconsistency which found me creating a group with the same name. This new publicly accessible Page allows anyone interested to participate and as you all know, the growing of both “Likes” and “Follows” while important, are still behind any of the engagement. When you see us posting, be sure to comment after liking the notice. This works for Page growth and shows the Facebook algorithm that we have a vibrant following. I’ll be moving on from that Group in the fashion it was built and doing many more broadcasts here so please follow the link below and if there are any questions about this part of the Ken Pierce Media angle, they can be submitted as a comment and I will answer as time permits.
Hey there readers. I’m making this post to continue to raise your awareness about this new brand and the social networks that I will be employing as it continues to build. We are now officially on Twitter because tweeting is a very important function these days and back in December when I first created the Ken Pierce Media Twitter, we were only using the Tumblr and Blogspot feeds and didn’t have this WordPress. Our very first Tweet is down below and I hope that you will give this profile a “Follow”.
In the coming weeks, I will be re-assigning the URL from Tumblr to WordPress and activating said WordPress on my current hosting plan to sit alongside my PiercingMetal.com and “The Chronicles Of Piercing Ken” websites. From there I will continue along the process of building this new brand and sharing some exiting new developments that you will be enjoying on the other two websites. Stay tuned.
We will also occasionally spotlight the connected social networks of Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Twitter as they apply to their respective website. Clicking HERE will bring you both sides of the creative coin in a single place and we hope that you enjoy it. Ken Pierce Media can also be found on Twitter and YouTube with official accounts so please consider following and subscribing to those as well.
Thank you for your interest,
Ken Pierce, Lead Creative and Founder
