Wouldn’t it be great if we had a personal publicist or a PR firm to manage and support our communication and media needs? Media outlets—newspapers, magazines, radio stations, television and Internet-based media/sites are important ways to inform a broad range of people about information, messages, issues, activities and events. Media is also an important tool in moving and shaping public opinion, discussions and conversations when done correctly.
