ST. LOUIS — Today, AT&T proudly announced that the St. Louis Blues are featured on the cover of the new AT&T Real Yellow Pages. Blues forward, David Backes and goalie, Chris Mason, represent the team on the front of the directory, which serves the greater St. Louis area. The hockey team, named after the famous W.C Handy song “St. Louis Blues,” has been a favorite of St. Louisans since joining the National Hockey League in 1967.
More than 1.7 million copies of the directory have been produced for distribution in the greater St. Louis area this year. Directory delivery is underway and continues through Dec.31. The directory, which has been named the official Yellow Pages directory of the St. Louis Blues, St. Louis Cardinals, and the St. Louis Rams, will be available to new residents and businesses throughout the year.
The St. Louis Blues are also featured on the cover of the companion directory, a smaller, more portable version of the traditional print directory designed for use while on-the-go.
In addition to area business listings, the AT&T Real Yellow Pages includes a 28-page Tourist and Entertainment guide featuring the St. Louis Rams. The guide provides a thorough listing of area attractions, events and other points of interest. Copies of the Tourist and Entertainment guide are available at area Pasta House restaurants and several other local businesses in the metropolitan area.
“We are proud to feature the St. Louis Blues on the cover of our new AT&T Real Yellow Pages directory for the greater St. Louis area,” said Ravi Batheja, area market manager, AT&T Advertising Solutions. “We continually work to make our directory covers special on the outside, and tailor the community information inside our directories to best meet the needs of local residents and businesses.”
“We’re thrilled the St. Louis Blues hockey team is featured on the new directory cover,” said Peter McLoughlin, CEO, St. Louis Blues Enterprises. “This means that for the next year, the Blues will be front and center anytime someone uses a directory, reminding fans who live here, and those who might be visiting, of this great franchise and how much fun it is to join in the excitement of Blues hockey.”
