Video: Why being on hold is excruciating at colleges

Care to guess what it’s like for us reporters when colleges and universities put us on hold when we phone up?

We listen to bad music. Endless, cheesy hold music.

So cheesy that MPR’s Tim Post decided to parody it in this great little video for the MPR talent show that we had on Friday. He and K-12 correspondent Tom Weber taped a ton of music from their favorite agencies.

His inspiration? He says Minnesota State University – Mankato, among others. (The state capitol has its own classics as well.)

Who says reporters don’t have a sense of humor?
