Cleveland has become the current golden child among American cities. Some thought it would gain some sustained momentum when the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame located there in 1995. While that was a huge win for Cleveland, the city is on a real roll right now!
While it still remains to be seen whether or not the Cleveland Browns’ drafting of quarterback Johnny Manziel will be a good thing, it certainly has brought a lot of attention to the team and its past struggles and potential bright future.
The city was also recently selected to host the 2016 Republican National Convention, a boon for any city.
Then, last week, the Cleveland Cavaliers won the LeBron James derby, as the basketball superstar decided to bring his talents back to his hometown – another announcement that has dominated the news for the last several days.
Ed Stevens, APR, chairman and CEO of Stevens Strategic Communications in Cleveland and president-elect of the Public Relations Global Network (PRGN), said, "It is now possible that Cleveland will be home to a king, the new president and, of course, ‘Johnny Football.’ These are great days in my hometown."
