Media Relations in the 21st Century
The book compares the historical evolution of the two professions individually and as integrated entities. It analyzes the day-to-day workings of the press, both print and electronic, and public relations professionals. It also shares detailed suggestions for how practitioners in each field can encourage the best possible relationship between the two.
All this information is examined in the context of how relationships between journalists and public relations practitioners have been in the past, are today, and may need to change in the future especially in the light of technological development and innovation.
Filled with analysis and clear recommendations for best professional practices, Media Relations in the 21st Century has been developed for introductory courses in public relations or journalism.
