Whether you’re in the media business, in public relations, in advertising or marketing, in between jobs or in the catbird’s seat, we cover what’s “in it for you.” A working philosophy of our editors, writers, analysts, researchers, marketers, content programmers and publishers in the Marketing & Media Group is to NOT WASTE YOUR TIME. It’s too valuable, and we know it.

So what we give to you every day, through our flagship brands PR News, FOLIO, Event Marketer,  Media Industry Newsletter (min), LeadsCon and PR News are information and intelligence that’s sui generis. We go behind the headlines and mainstream coverage of the topics to a deeper level that will make you smarter and your organization or department much more effective.

Both PR News and min have been covering communications and magazine media for more than 60 years. You can say we’ve been around the block a bit, and along the way have created services and products that cater to the time-strapped executive looking for insight, smart ideas and access to like-minded individuals with whom they can partner and learn.

Through our publications, events, awards programs, books, Web sites, professional development webinars, on-site training and more, the Media/PR Group provides Next Practices for smart executives like you. I hope you’ll join our network and see what’s in it for you.
