A Message from Larry Ceisler
The torrent of news is quicker than ever. This newsletter reflects that.
I’m proud of our team – a collection of professionals working with me and our COO, Kate Wilhelm, who keep their eyes on the outside world. Knowing what’s going on in our community, our state and our country makes us better able to serve our clients.
In this newsletter, you'll see many of our people reflecting on all that has occurred in the last month. I have a piece offering my thoughts on the recent Pennsylvania primary and where politics is headed.
Managing Director Kurt Knaus clarifies how the pandemic has impacted politics in Harrisburg. Senior Associate Drew Murren takes a different look at the capital city – and the conflicting protests going on there.
Special Projects Manager Larry Miller reflects on recent protests and explains why the needed social change must come from both political parties.
Director Meredith Montalto writes a humorous piece we all can relate to, on seeking that balance of business and family while working from home. Krystal Bonner, our Director of Digital & Creative Services, notes how the pandemic has injected certain clichéd language into every ad and conversation.
And Keegan Gibson, Special Projects Manager for Western PA, smartly outlines disputes between reporters and management at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, which came to a head over coverage of the protests.
There really is a flurry of news out there. That’s why we at Ceisler Media have put more focus on our media monitoring efforts. You’ll see a fine explainer here from Senior Associate Courtney Accurti.
We’ve got updates on our clients as well. Give it a read and let me know your thoughts.
Update on our Cherished Friend and Colleague, Kirk Dorn
I’m delighted to report Kirk returned home in early June after undergoing a heart transplant at Johns Hopkins back in March. As I told our staff, though Kirk has a new heart, he never lost heart – his resolve has been tremendous. Our gratitude goes out to Kirk’s terrific family, and we all look forward to catching up with our friend.
