Question for PR Gurus

By on

Is it a tenet of your profession to pre-announce a big announcement?

Please, make the announcement. Or don't.

But don't announce that the announcement will come tomorrow.

the MSM now views news as strictly a profit center and another means of forcing YET more advertising upon society. If X gets wind of a pending announcement - which I agree is a totally idiotic and silly practice - first, they will naturally issue the "announcement of a pending announcement'. And once they do that, every one else will follow suit (the "monkey see, money do" and "why should we investigate what we can lift from somebody else" mentalities of the media).

Just another consequence of having mid-1980s MBA graduates - the ones who were taught that profit, no matter how small or how it is attained, is the only thing that matters, running things

Knew it was coming, but always sad to see a good guy go, one who actually cares about the city. Hope he sticks around & opens a restaurant.

He did open one, out in Natick or Framingham (somewhere on Rte. 9 at any rate). Is it still around?

papi option 2017

By on

what does everyone do if he's hitting 300 with 30hrs and 100rbi next fall? they pick up his option for 2017, thats what they do. I personally hate the rocking chair farewell tours, its so derek jeter. make the announcement next september and then the Boston fans get plenty of opportunity to cheer the large father before he rides off into the sunset in his maybach.
