What do Howie Carr and I have in common?

We are both speaking at the PRSA Boston Annual Meeting in December. With two strong draws, the event is sure to sell out quickly so register now...

Following are some more details:

6:00 - 8:30 p.m.
Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel, 138 St. James Avenue, Boston, MA

Howie Carr, the award-winning columnist, controversial talk show host, and New York Times bestselling author, will share insights and anecdotes from his years as a reporter and commentator. Throughout his career, he has dealt with thousands of public relations people. He will give us his thoughts and answer your questions on how to do effective public relations and the future of journalism on the radio, in print and online. He promises to be just as sharp-tongued and provocative before PRSA Boston as he is on the radio and in print, sparing no one as he shares the best and worst PR experiences and gaffes that have come his way.

Carr’s hard-hitting exposes of local politicians and political corruption and patronage have drawn quite a bit of regional and national attention over the years. He has worked at numerous broadcast media outlets and served as the Boston Herald American’s Boston City Hall bureau chief and its State House bureau chief.

Carr has received the National Magazine Award and has been nominated for an Emmy Award. His new book, “The Brothers Bulger: How They Terrorized and Corrupted Boston for a Quarter Century,” was praised by critics and on the New York Times bestseller list for 11 weeks in 2006-07.

Also on the Program Agenda:
Presentation of the Fourth Annual PRSA Boston Beacon Award For Lifetime Achievement in Public Relations

Election of the 2008 Chapter Officers
