National Publicist Day is celebrated on October 30 of each year to honor an important profession. Writers and journalists who dedicate to news, political, public news, daily inform people about incidents. Without their work, we will be cut off from the whole world.
On October 1906, 28, a terrible accident happened – a train on the Pennsylvania Railroad derailed and fell into a reservoir. Quince Lee, a famous journalist, persuaded the road managers to cover the events and arranged for a train to be launched to the scene. On October 30, the first press release was written in the New York Times. It was a completely new approach to the events covered!
Publicists tirelessly work with the public. Their work is invisible, but readable. They often have to work in a tense environment, in bad climatic conditions, late at night, on holidays… They do everything so that the population receives information from the scene in time and learns about useful companies.
- believed that in press releases you need to be honest and tell only the truth – success depends on this;
- was born in Georgia and opened the first agency here;
