Now & Then: A Retrospective on 3 Years in PR


For any other era or generation, a timeframe of three years would be a mere blip in the overall timeline of anything—a career, a trend, a lifetime, etc. But for me, that three-year timeframe marks a coalescence and convergence of so many factors, all of which pertain to PR/communications in some capacity. First, it is the length of my tenure as the editor of PR News, a tenure that is ending as of today’s publication date (Nov. 16, 2009—exactly three years, three months and 15 days since I took the role of PR News editor). As is often the case, the departure is bittersweet: I’ll be leaving behind colleagues and a profession that I love (journalism), but I am doing so only because I was given the opportunity to join a new venture, MH Group Communications, which is rooted in the convergence of traditional PR and social media.
