- A recording sample using this paragraph:

Ever since the Parisian newspaper La Presse published the first paid advertisement in 1836, the media channels with the widest reach have been the costliest messengers. Newspapers, magazines, radio and television broadcasts--they are the mouthpieces for marketing departments on massive budgets. Every year, marketers pay media providers hundreds of billions of dollars to disseminate advertising messages to as many people as possible. Sheer size matters most. It’s why Super Bowl commercials, front page advertisements, and highway billboards are the status symbols of traditional advertising. They reach the largest audiences, and so they cost the most. But what are marketers paying for?
