Media Relations

The partners at MMC have extensive experience in working directly with reporters, editors and other media representatives to communicate a client’s messages.  MMC has been effective in generating both high-valued volumes of earned media, as well as creating approaches to minimize exposure of sensitive or negative issues, based on each client’s unique situation.

These assignments are highly confidential and can be discussed in a face-to-face meeting.
