Amir Forester Opens New PR Firm
November 3, 2009 at 4:00 AM (PT)
Former PREMIERE RADIO NETWORKS SVP/Public Relations AMIR FORESTER has opened FORESTER PUBLIC RELATIONS, a full-service firm for media talent and companies, including strategic communications and reputation management. Among FORESTER's charter clients are syndicated hosts PHIL HENDRIE and ELVIS DURAN and talk consultant and former CLEAR CHANNEL executive GABE HOBBS; FORESTER, whose PREMIERE tenure included public relations and publicity for RUSH LIMBAUGH, DR. LAURA SCHLESSINGER, GLENN BECK, and JIM ROME, among many others, is also consulting crisis communications firm SITRICK AND CO.
HOBBS said, "I get more comments on the amount of publicity I've received than I do about the fact I’ve launched a new business. My response is always, 'I have a great PR strategist.' And I certainly do!"
FORESTER, whose resume also includes a stint at PR giant HILL AND KNOWLTON, said, "It’s not just about getting your name in the press -- often it's about keeping it out when the visibility will not advance the long-range goals of the client. Either way, the one consistent factor is being clear about what you want to say and seizing the right opportunities to tell your story."
FORESTER PUBLIC RELATIONS is at 11620 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 705, LOS ANGELES, CA 90025. The phone is (310) 857-6207 with fax at (310) 388-3225. See more at foresterpublicrelations.com and reach AMIR at firstname.lastname@example.org.
