Our team of publicists are news media veterans, so we have a unique advantage when it comes to getting media attention for our clients: we used to do the news.
We understand the needs, deadlines, and pressures surrounding a newsroom.
We get you publicity by pitching your story to right journalists, in a language they understand.

Do you want to get media attention for your story?
Newsrooms receive thousands of press releases every day. How do you make your story rise to the top?
As former members of the media, it was once our job to zero in on the central story and tell it in an impactful way. Now, as one of Dallas’ premier media relations firms, we use the same skills to get earned media publicity for our clients.
We use our news media experience and extensive network of journalist contacts to learn your story, know your audience, and share your message to the news media better than anyone else can.
- We start watching the news for you.
- One consistent approach to get media coverage is to pitch the newsroom stories we already know they are looking for. Every day, we watch the news cycle for stories and narratives that we can tie our clients into.
- We make you the expert.
- We craft angles that we know are compelling based on our experience in the news, and recommend you as the expert.
- We pitch you to our network of journalists.
- We maintain close relationships with hundreds of journalists in major news markets across the country, and thousands of reporters come to us for stories to cover each day.

Our Publicity Process
1. Consultation & Kick-Off Call
The first step is for you to meet your account manager and PR expert to discuss your media relations goals.
2. Media Outreach & PR Pitches
We craft a few angles that we might have taken on the story while we were reporting the news, and we pitch them to our extensive list of media contacts.
3. Give Interviews
It’s not uncommon for clients to get 6 interviews in a single day.
Our team captures the print, radio, or TV recording of your interviews and post it to your social media profiles, as well as a digital newsroom we create for you.
