PRSA|GA's Annual Media Luncheon


The PRSA GA August Luncheon featured a lively panel comprised of members from the Atlanta media scene. Mark Meltzer (Atlanta Business Chronicle), Walter Jones (Morris News Service), Chris Sweigart (11 Alive) and Denis O'Hayer (WABE-FM 90.1) engaged in a dynamic and insightful discussion on the evolution of today’s news environment and what ramifications it will present.

Moderated by Richard Warner (What’s Up Interactive), panelists detailed how technological advancements and social media has led to the proliferation of information and how public consumption of news is drastically changing. Interestingly, panelists agreed these factors have brought us into an information revolution.

PRSA GA President and Arketi Group Principal Mike Neumeier presented Elyse Hammett (communications 21) with the monthly Chapter Champion award. In addition, Kim Englehardt (Primrose Schools) and Jesica Koenig (American Cancer Society) were honored as the chapter's newest APR's.

Spotted in the crowd were Nancy Schubert (IBM), Susan Rosenberg (UPS) and Lisa Pitrof (BusinessWire). For more information about PRSA GA and the September luncheon, visit http://www.prsageorgia.org/.
