#MediaMonday – Dave Munsey

 |  Aug 22, 2016

On Thursday, October 13, Dave Munsey will be inducted into the Arizona Broadcasters Hall of Fame. He’s been in the radio and television industry for more than 50 years and has been at FOX 10 for more than 40 years, where he currently reports the weather on the station’s 5, 6, 9 and 10 p.m. newscasts. Dave has a trophy case full of Emmys for his weather reporting and his water-safety initiatives “Watch Your Kids Around Water” and “Summer of Supervision.” Fun fact - He’s one of the people who helped inspire Scott's broadcasting career. As a kid, Scott had the opportunity to visit Dave at work – when he was doing both the morning show at KOOL-FM and the weather at Channel 10. All these years later, Scott played the part of reporter, interviewing Dave about his life in today's #mediamonday. Click the link to read the great story!

Crisis Communications – Sexist Olympic PR Problems

 |  Aug 12, 2016

All this week I have been planning to write about the Olympics, since I really enjoy watching them (and no, not just the tennis portion). At first I was going to write about the Russian athletes who were banned from the Olympics for failing drug tests. I had written earlier in the year about Sharapova’s […]

#MediaMonday – Jennifer Longdon, Ability 360

#MediaMonday – Jennifer Longdon, Ability 360

 |  July 25, 2016

I’ve posted here before about our work on behalf of disability organizations. We featured the National Center on Disability and Journalism New Comprehensive Style Guide as a previous Media Monday and I’ve also written about how Jennifer Longdon inspires me to be a better person. You’ll understand why the word inspire has a different meaning than what you may think. One of our first clients doing disability advocacy work was ABIL, now called Ability360. They have recently launched a magazine and I asked Jen to tell us a little bit more about it. But you can’t learn about the magazine without first learning about Jen. We’re sharing this post today because it is the day before the 26th anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act. So Jen, what do you want to tell the blogosphere about yourself today?

I knew there was something about KTVK sports director Tim Ring I liked. Turns out, his dad (like mine) went to #NotreDame. GO IRISH! His story, which culminates on the broadcast side in him joining KTVK 3TV in 2009, is a great one. Very happy to have him as our #MediaMonday today so he can share it.
