October 30th is National Publicist Day!
Public Relations professionals have their own National Day on the calendar
On this day in Public Relations history, Ivy Lee (also known as the “father of modern PR”), in response to a tragic railroad accident, created the first press release. The New York Times was so impressed with this innovative approach that it printed the press release verbatim in its paper on October 30th, 1906.
Knowing the history of the press release and also being a publicist, Jordanna Stephen thought it would be nice for publicists to have a day of appreciation. “Public relations is not an instant-gratification career. We work hard behind the scenes for our clients and National Publicist Day is for all publicists, no matter your industry, to be publicly appreciated and recognized not only by your clients but also from your fellow publicists for what we do to improve brand to consumer communication. It’s a day just for us,” said Jordanna. National Publicist Day also encourages brands that do not currently have a publicist to look into the benefits of having one on their team and research a firm or freelance publicist that is right for them.
The official hashtag for National Publicist Day is #NationalPublicistDay.
