PR Firm Pleads Don't Scrap PR Spending

By John Honovich, Published Jan 20, 2017, 06:53am EST (Info+)

PR is not dying, warns pleads PR firm.

Take 40+ year old industry PR firm LRG, who recently lamented the 'misconceptions' that:

Traditional PR is dead

Scrap their company’s PR program

And awkwardly reassured that PR is:

Not going away anytime soon

Don’t count it out just yet

Ironically, this is the type of cringeworthy foot-in-mouth take that a PR firm should prevent, not publish.

In this note, we look at the serious issues with the old-school LRG approach to the industry.
