Our team of publicists consists of seasoned news media professionals, granting us a unique edge when it comes to obtaining media attention for our clients in Austin: we used to create the news.

We’re familiar with the needs, deadlines, and pressures that are part of a newsroom environment.

We generate publicity for you by presenting your story to the right journalists using language they understand.
