PRSA Colorado and the Denver Press Club host “Bad Press Release Theater” tomorrow (Tuesday) night from 6-10 p.m. Improv performers include Steve Koenigsberg, Lisa Cutter and Elisabeth Monaghan of PRSA, and Cynthia Hessin, Adam Goldstein and Bruce Goldberg of the DPC. The PR folks will play the part of media pros, and vice versa. Details are here.
The rumors have been circulating for a little while that CBS4 lead anchor Karen Leigh is pregnant, so I’ve been curious if there would be any backlash to the fact that she is not married. Most people wouldn’t care, of course, but TV news viewership tends to skew a little old and cranky.
But so far, there hasn’t been much noise. And credit Leigh for getting ahead of the story with this blog post. She smartly humanized her situation in a way that should take the air out of those who might criticize her.
Among those hiring this week are Turner PR, Volume PR, The Berry Company, Dumb Friends League, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, MDC Holdings, Coclear, Telluride Daily Planet, Kansas City Chiefs (Kansas City, Mo.) and Argonne National Labs (Argonne, Ill.).
