Brenda Poor is the marketing and communications director of Global Care Force, a nonprofit that connects volunteers with partners serving people in need. Before this, she spent three decades working behind the scenes in television newsrooms in Kansas City. In today's discussion, Poor shares tips on how to get your story covered in TV news, ageism in the workplace, being a single mother, and her journey that led to the public relations and marketing field and to assuming a leadership position in a leading professional organization for communicators

Don't miss her frank thoughts about the state of journalism and what surprised her most about working in PR. Listen in!

I just want to be clear I loved working. In broadcast journalism news, I loved it. I loved it, loved it, loved it until I didn't, and I was starting to get to that point (after) 14-and-a-half (at Channel 5). In those 14-and-a-half years I had like seven news directors. And you know that's never good.” --Brenda Poor
