#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.

#MediaMonday – Kyndra de St. Aubin

 |  Mar 12, 2012

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!

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 […]

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 – 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. […]
