We Speak Journalism.

Real News Public Relations is the country’s first all-journalist PR firm, staffed exclusively by experienced, award-winning reporters, editors, and producers. After witnessing the failures of the Dallas public relations industry from within the news room, 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.

Other PR firms spend their time writing and sending out ineffective press releases. In contrast, Real News PR is a rare resource for the news rooms, providing valuable content and industry experts for media outlets across the country. Beyond seeking news coverage, Real News PR also provides full service video production, search engine optimization, social media strategy and implementation, web design, podcasting, as well as a professional speaker’s bureau.

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.
