Top Dallas PR Agency

Public Relations Focused on Results.

Real News Public Relations is the country’s first all-journalist PR agency, staffed exclusively by experienced, award-winning reporters, editors, and producers.

After witnessing the failures of the Dallas public relations industry from within the newsroom, Real News PR® was founded in 2008 by a team of media experts with the purpose of delivering results instead of promises.

We guarantee success because unlike other PR firms, we speak “journalism”. We work with clients to develop content the media needs, and deliver them in a language they understand.

Our PR Strategy Playbook:

Launch your company or product

Whether it’s your company, brand, or a new product hot on the market, we can handle the PR for your big launch.

Establish yourself as an influencer and thought leader

When the media comes looking for an expert take, we introduce them to you

Local publicity

Do you have a company with a strong local presence? We can help you reach the customers nearby.

Seasonal stories and tips

Whether it’s Valentine's Day or tax season, there is a calendar full of ways to tie you into a seasonal event.

Cool promotions and publicity stunts

Thinking about doing something with the potential to go viral? We have the contacts and experience to promote your latest stunt or product promotion.

Move the industry narrative forward

If your industry is red hot, we put you into the middle of the conversation with the media.

CEO Jeff Crilley

Having seen the failures of the public relations industry first-hand from within the news room, CEO Jeff Crilley founded Real News PR® with a vision to equip his company with a team of media experts. The mission of Real News PR® is “to deliver publicity at the speed of news, with the purpose of delivering results instead of promises.”

We guarantee success because unlike other Dallas PR firms, our unique approach is most effective since we speak “journalist.” We work with our clients to develop stories that the media will love and in a language they understand. Paired with the team of journalists, our marketing experts build the brand and awareness that makes an impact.

Why Real News PR?®

After our PR campaign, we started getting calls from all over the world with people who were wanting to know about us. I think it was over 4 million hits in one month on our web page.

Jim G., MBACEO of Energy Company & Real News PR Client

We have been working with Real News PR for a little over two years, and our experience has been fantastic. The media attention and PR spots Real News has facilitated continue to improve our brand awareness and increase the speed to trust for our organization. If your company is looking for quality exposure, Real News is the PR firm for you!

Jennifer P.Chief of Staff of Tech Company & Real News PR Client

If we want to shift shots, if we want to have in-studio guests, if we want to beam in a guest remotely, RNCN takes care of everything. I just walk in, say "shoot", and we go. This production team is literally stellar.

Suzanne C.Leadership Coach, Podcast Host, & Real News PR Client

We don't have to think about the mics or the video. We go live on Facebook, they do that automatically. We know as soon as our show is done, it gets uploaded to iTunes, Youtube, and all of the locations that we want it to go to. It's all handled for us.
