How will Streaming Change the Emmys?

2016-09-19 by Ronn Torossian

5WPR CEO Ronn Torossian comments on the future of Streaming Live Events. The continued success of streaming video content has many traditional TV networks trying to figure out how to jump on the bandwagon without destroying their current, profitable business model. The NFL recently announced a deal to stream Thursday Night Football on Twitter, and many NCAA games are available to watch on ESPN3. Meanwhile, many new popular shows are only available through streaming services. Netflix and Amazon are fighting tooth and nail against each other and against traditional networks for recognition. And it looks like, this year, they will... Read More >

Taking Sexy Bikini Shots In College Can Forever Affect Your Career

What Happens on the Internet, Stays on the Internet This is not in the way talked about with Las Vegas, but in quite the opposite: hen pictures or comments are posted on the Internet, count on them being there forever. Count on them being there long after the giddy days of youth have passed and there’s a need to be taken seriously in a career, or something you never want your grandchildren to view. Remember the Future Topless pictures or videos, as well as pictures in lingerie or the skimpiest of bikinis, are probably not a good idea unless that... Read More >

PR Lessons from Unions

2016-09-13 by Richard D. Pace

Great PR is often associated with Mad Men of Madison Ave, Silicon Valley wizards, or seasoned warriors on K Street. But that’s oversimplifying things, and underestimating some of the best PR operatives in the country – unions. Long gone are days when unions accomplished their goals by simply picketing outside the employer’s office, or scaring passerby’s with giant inflatable rats. Intimidating unyielding employers with physical violence is also pretty much behind us. That’s because often you can accomplish a ton towards Public Relations campaigns. A great example of true mastery in using PR as a weapon is Health Professionals and...

Chinese Couple Befriended Jeb Bush with $1.3 Million Investment

[caption id="attachment_83352" align="aligncenter" width="800"] Image courtesy of People[/caption] Most politicians and businessmen get to where they are and maintain the position through cultivating friendships in high places – often with each other. In politics and business alike, money talks, and many alliances are bought with dollars and cents, as opposed to camaraderie. Perhaps, few know this better than the husband and wife who spent $1.3 million trying to make Jeb Bush President of the United States. Gordon Tang and Huaidan Chen are Chinese expatriates living in Singapore and have created relationships with many American politicians, aside from Jeb Bush. In... Read More >

The Public Relations World Was Changed By Project Apollo

2016-08-10 by Ronn Torossian
Nasa Public Relations

Project Apollo, and especially Apollo 11, gave the United States an opportunity to shine like it has rarely been able to do. Not that great things haven’t been accomplished in America over the years, but this was above the mark. It gave the U.S. a chance to show our technological supremacy over the rest of the world and especially rival nations. That was the primary goal of the program when first envisioned by the Kennedy administration in 1961 - it wasn’t so much about conquering space travel, it was about proving our superiority - especially to the “Red Menace.” To...
