If you were getting tired of the Is-the-Michael-Hancock-story-really-a-story debate, good news. The proposed Gaylord Hotel development in Aurora is the newest catfight in town, and it is splitting Denver’s PR community. On one side are Wendy Aiello (repping Aurora) and Pete Webb (repping Gaylord). And on the other side is Andrew Hudson, who doesn’t want to see the Stock Show relocate from Denver.

And if you aren’t tired of the Michael Hancock debate, Big Media blogger Jason Salzman takes Denver media to task for running with a story that was broken by a guy using rampant rumors as a source.

By Pete Webb
Founder,
Webb Public Relations

  • A major “name” firm will close its doors, burdened by overhead and a shaky corporate client base.
  • A long-time TV anchor will leave the set.
  • “Social media,” “New media,” whatever it’s called in the current blogs, will grow as a pitching strategy.  We’ll never have to pick up the phone again; just Twitter the 22-year old on the desk, and if she’s not busy arranging her evening out, we’ll get a call back with interest in the story.
  • Media-rich news release strategies will be more in demand as TV struggles to get video and print struggles to get details.
  • At least one Denver TV station will abandon the “Denver pool” and decide it should be deciding where to devote its crews and photojournalists.
  • Fox31 will trim its photo staff and use Skype for live interviews.
  • “Green” will continue to be the elusive “next trend” for PR firms chasing the rainbow.
  • The Denver Business Journal will reinforce its 3pm newscast to become even more of a threat to the Post business page.
  • The McInnis-Ritter campaign will try to elevate the tone of political debate in Colorado, but obscure 527s and the nasty progressives and right-wing fringe will continue to roll grenades down the aisle.
