Avnet, Arizona Corporate Broadcast Center and Modavox Help Military Families Reach Loved Ones Overseas on Saturday


15 Time Slots Still Open for Recording Five-Minute Video Message

December 5, 2006 - PHOENIX -- For the third year in a row, three Valley companies are helping U.S. armed forces troops serving overseas see their loved ones during the holidays, if only for a few minutes.

Avnet, Inc. (NYSE:AVT), Arizona Corporate Broadcast Center (AZCBC) and Modavox are helping military families record a five-minute video message on Saturday, Dec. 9, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Arizona Corporate Broadcast Center, located at 2617 S. 46th St., Ste. 300, in Phoenix. Fifteen time slots are still available - interested families should email by Thurs., Dec. 7, at 5 p.m. to schedule a 15-minute session, which includes preparation time as well as taping the five-minute message. Refreshments will also be served.

’Avnet and its partners appreciate the service Arizona troops have given our country - connecting them with their families here in Arizona is one small way to show our support,’ said Michelle Gorel, vice president of public relations at Avnet. ’Watching families large and small participate during previous years has been a joy, and we hope to include more families than ever this year.’

Taped in the AZCBC’s state-of-the-art broadcast studio by a professional video crew that ensures lighting and sound quality is outstanding, each family will receive a DVD from the AZCBC to be sent to its troop deployed overseas. Modavox will also host the video messages on its Web site and provide the families with individual links to share with their troops and anyone else who might want to view the messages.

’The AZCBC hosts a large number of celebrities, professional athletes and politicians every year, but nothing is as rewarding as helping the community and especially the families of the soldiers who are serving our country,’ said Clay Stubblefield, chief executive officer of the AZCBC. ’At this time of year the military families are a part of our family and we are humbled to do our small part to serve those who have sacrificed so much for all of us.’
