                 BELLSOUTH REAL YELLOW PAGES ANNOUNCES
                THE APPEARANCE OF ITS MARKETING MAGICIAN AT
                       MOBILE CHAMBER BUSINESS EXPO


Mobile, Alabama -- (August 9, 2004) - Lee Lentz, a corporate magician who specializes in
branded entertainment, will work his magic in Mobile for The Real Yellow Pages from
BellSouth during the Mobile Chamber of Commerce Business Expo at the Arthur R.
Outlaw Convention Center. The expo is scheduled for August 26, and admission is $2 per
person.


“We are very excited to have Lee as part of our exhibit this year,” says Sandra Falcon,
Area Marketing Manger for The Real Yellow Pages from BellSouth. “He has appeared at
business events in other markets for The Real Yellow Pages, and he’s always a big hit.”


Lentz will perform a series of “mini” magic shows lasting approximately 15-20 minutes
each. During the shows he will combine information about The Real Yellow Pages and
RealPages.com with his signature style of eye-popping magic. “We will use magic as a
visual aid to illustrate how businesses can use The Real Yellow Pages and
RealPages.com to connect with more potential customers,” Lentz explains. “People will
really have a lot of fun when they visit the Real Yellow Pages exhibit. We’re going to create
some magical moments where you absolutely won’t believe what you see,” he promises.


The magic will happen from 3-8 p.m. at The Real Yellow Pages exhibit booth at the expo.
Visitors to the booth can also obtain free gifts from The Real Yellow Pages.
