#MediaMonday – 99 Problems but the Media Ain’t One, Take Two

 |  Apr 23, 2012

Earlier this month, we noted that Arizona isn’t the only one celebrating a 100th birthday in 2012. Our #MediaMonday profiles happen to be turning 100, too. New to #MediaMonday? There is a full list of our past profiles here. Each week, we profile a member of the media by simply asking them one question – […]


#MediaMonday – Kevin Bertram

Happy Monday fellow bloggers, Rachel Lilly here.  I received the privilege of interning for HMA Summer 2011, and I will be graduating from Northern Arizona University with a degree in Public Relations in just a few weeks! One aspect about NAU that I have come to love is their communication efforts on campus.  So I asked Kevin […]


#MediaMonday – 99 Problems but the Media Ain’t One

 |  Apr 2, 2012

Arizona isn’t the only one celebrating a 100th birthday in 2012. Our (in)famous #MediaMonday profiles happen to be turning 100, too. Yep, our weekly profiles of members of the media from across the globe have reached the 100-post mark – and we think it calls for a little online celebration. So in honor of #MediaMonday’s […]


#MediaMonday – State Press Edition

 |  Mar 26, 2012

Today’s #MediaMonday comes to us from the mind and keyboard of Katie Snyder, HMA intern extraordinaire. Some may know him as a classmate. Others know him as a mentor. I know him as Nathan Meacham fellow sports fan and editor-in-chief of The State Press, ASU’s student-staffed newspaper. So, Nathan, time to share! What do you […]


#MediaMonday – Kyndra de St. Aubin

Ballet or basketball? Shopping or Suns? Makeup or Manning? I think it comes as NO surprise I choose the latter of all the options above. I just love sports. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. You know what I also love – other women who love sports, and talking about sports, as much as me. So, it is […]

A Tip for Tuesday – Talk Ain’t Cheap!

A Tip for Tuesday – Talk Ain’t Cheap!

 |  Mar 6, 2012

Think about Tiger Woods. What images come to mind? Is it that red Nike shirt flapping in the wind as he won yet another golf tournament? All those commercials featuring his mug and high-end brands? Probably not. For me, when I think about Tiger, I think about silence – and then that contrite look on […]


A Tip for Tuesday – 15 Questions to a Better Life

 |  Feb 28, 2012

Anyone else read How to Win Friends and Influence People in the Digital Age? Our most recent HMA Book Club did, and among the book’s many words of wisdom were questions – 15 questions, to be exact. Fifteen questions that can help us all lead better lives! Here is how. I am a consummate over-sharer. […]

We say it here at HMA all the time – we PR folks wear a lot of hats. Sometimes, we have our writing hats on. Other days, we have our event planning and story pitching hats on. And sometimes, we have our crisis management and business consulting hats on. Heck, most days we wear all […]


#MediaMonday – Brien McElhatten

 |  Feb 13, 2012

As an “Alison” who spells her name with only one “L,” I can appreciate the importance of spelling others’ names correctly. As a “Brien” with an “E,” ABC15’s multimedia journalist Brien McElhatten can too. I first met Brien when he visited a Rocky Mountain Emmy meeting in late 2011, interested in joining our board. He […]


#MediaMonday – Jim Cross

 |  Feb 6, 2012

When I first saw News Talk 92.3 FM senior reporter Jim Cross, I thought he looked like a real-life, present-day cowboy. When I first spoke to Jim Cross, I knew I came face-to-face with one of the true local media vets of our great state. But, when I first started writing this, I was not […]


#MediaMonday – Lauren Gilger

 |  Jan 30, 2012

You may know her as ABC 15 journalist supreme, but others may mistake her for Picasso – or Annie Leibovitz. Yep, ABC 15 reporter Lauren Gilger is a true Renaissance woman with journalism in her blood, literally. Today, we are thrilled to profile her as part of our weekly #MediaMonday series of blogs all about […]


#MediaMonday – Marie Saavedra

I love native Chicagoans! Not because I am one, mind you. But my family is originally from South Bend, Indiana (yes, home to Notre Dame). Being merely 90 minutes from Chicago and a whole four hours from Indianapolis, Chicago always seemed more like “our big city” even though it was technically in a different state. […]
