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 […]

 |  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 […]

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. […]


#MediaMonday – Wag-Worthy Edition!

#MediaMonday – Ed Baker

 |  Dec 12, 2011

It’s always so random how you meet people in this business. I had the pleasure of meeting Ed Baker, editor of the College Times for the past 10 years, in Ken Koziol’s office at Entertainment Solutions back in 2004 or 2005. Entertainment Solutions was putting on its annual Tempe Music Festival and the College Times […]
