Typing “death of the press release” into Google yields 34 million results.

The year 2011 represents a rebirth of public relations—from chrysalis to butterfly, or more functionally, from Gutenberg to Jobs. While the singularity of the news release as an organization’s one and only megaphone has long since passed, organizations still need to release news and tell their stories.
