Idaho PR

A quote from the ABC online variant states: "The... Read More >

Evidently the paint company did not need a PR firm that could write a press release, let alone provide a title for it, as the released title appeared like this: "PR Agency gains new paint contract" Evidently, Paul Bowers, director of this Weber Shandwick office, was so pleased he went on to toot the company's horn further by speaking of landing other key clients in...
