Each week The Advocate asks a different “quiz taker” for his or her current favorites in pop culture.

QUIZ TAKER: Tobie Craig, age? ”Let me put it this way — my son is now older than I am!,” vice president of marketing for Turner Industries.

WHAT I’M LISTENING TO: “On my iPod — K.D. Lang’s ‘Hallelujah,’ Lady GaGa’s ‘The Edge of Glory,’ ‘Boston’s Greatest Hits’ and anything by Josh Groban.”

WHAT I’M READING: “The Advocate every day — really; I must have it with my morning coffee! ‘The Social Animal’ by David Brooks; Wall Street Journal and Business Report.”

WHAT I’M WATCHING: “On TV — ‘Modern Family’ and ‘30 Rock’; movies — ‘Captain America.’”

WHERE I’M SURFING (ON THE INTERNET): “Turner Industries, of course, and I can’t live without Google.”

WHAT’S YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE? ”A really good hamburger!”


You are the new chairwoman?of the Capital Area United Way board. Why is CAUW so important to the communities it serves and why are you involved?

“I got involved 10 years ago through my job.?United Way has been the corporate philanthropy of Turner Industries since it began in 1961.?Our founder, Bert Turner, firmly believed that you cannot be successful in a community that is falling down around you; that each of us who is blessed with a job has a responsibility to help those less fortunate; and that United Way is the most efficient vehicle to get the most resources to the most people who need them. I truly believe in that and I support the philosophy that if each and every one of us does our small part, that those small parts will add up to be more than adequate in meeting the needs in our community.”
