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
