News Media Alliance Headline


The public relations team at Brian Communications was charged with helping the News Media Alliance change the general perception of the state of print and digital newspaper media. It has been imperative that we convey to the advertising community that newspapers remain a worthwhile investment, and that the real story of growth and innovation is told to members, policy makers and readers. Empowering a challenged industry to support and disseminate a new, positive storyline is no small feat to be sure, and one that has required a strong content marketing and media relations effort. Engaging with the News Media Alliance’s marketing team, we have developed a strategy to reach and engage members in compelling ways – exposing this fresh, confident new narrative to newspapers.
