Our team of veteran broadcast journalists and producers has created the nation’s leading, hands-on, interactive training experience for News Media Relations professionals.  Emmy Award RuffinFoxSup2Winning Television News veteran Russell Ruffin literally wrote the book on Media Relations, in fact, he’s written two of them used today by the nation’s top news makers. His publications include: Media Matters, an examination and critique of the best and worst media experiences, as well as the Media Insider’s Public Information Officer’s Guide, a textbook for media relations professionals.

When you train with us, we put you in front of the same lights and news cameras you will face with the news media.  We ask the tough questions that will help you prepare for interviews, news conferences or news features.  We’ll even give you DVD videos of your performance.Class Exercisesdk      On-Location Training in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina
