Kelly and Mary Beth proudly welcome the powerful energy and insights of Tearsa Smith, Morning Anchor of WATE-TV Channel 6 News -- the ABC affiliate of Knoxville, Tennessee, to "Ms. InterPReted." Tearsa shares her experiences from the front lines of fielding, delivering and managing community news in the Year 2020, a time of massive global chaos at every level ... and how that chaos unfolds in a Middle-America market like East Tennessee, from COVID-19, to racial injustice and demonstrations, to the day-to-day roller-coaster of the newsroom with daily life.
In this episode focused on learning, leading and coping in *The Year That is 2020 in the PR Profession*, Kelly and Mary Beth welcome Rod Cartwright, a London-based colleague and leader of Rod Cartwright Consulting, who also serves as Deputy Chair of the PRCA's Global COVID-19 Taskforce.
On Wednesday, April 29, #MsInterPReted hosted our monthly Twitter chat with special guest Francis Ingham (@Ingers1975), director general of the PRCA. The subject, 'PR Thought Leadership in the New Era' centered around what the current and post COVID-19 era will demand of PR leadership in both words and action.
As the public relations profession absorbs its share of the COVID-19 impact with job, contract and revenue losses, most practitioners are still seeking to help their clients and employers craft truthful, productive and forward-looking messages.
As worldwide business, governmental and organizational entities face crisis-preparedness demands for coronavirus contingency planning – and as crisis issues and incidents of all forms are part of each daily news cycle – CEOs, management teams and boards of directors must stand accountable to make sure their organizations are prepared for the completely unexpected… or, in the coronavirus case, a fast-evolving and foreseeable disruption with a full-scale impact that is yet unknown.
With offices in Knoxville and Atlanta, Fletcher Marketing PR announced today the launch of the “MsInterPReted” podcast, a new digital offering from the public relations firm to help demystify PR issues, trends and related topics for strategic communicators as well as executives in other disciplines who wish to grow their businesses or develop their organizations.
