Planned Television Arts has provided many a beginning in the world of public relations. In celebration of our 50th anniversary and new name, we reached out to some former PTA staff members to gather their memories of their time at Planned Television Arts.
Where she is now . . .
Managing Director, McAllisterPR
On her favorite campaign at PTA . . .
I would have to choose Richard Simmons. Working with Richard was a milestone in my career. It really expanded my PR experience to a whole new level, and he remains a client and friend to this day.
The single greatest technological advancement since her time at PTA . . .
When I started at PTA we didn’t even have e-mail, and there were only about 4 computers that the staff had to share, so the advances have been significant. I would have to say social media is the biggest advance overall. Twitter, Facebook, Google+, etc. have really changed the way we do our jobs.
Additional Memories Worth Sharing . . .
PTA was an amazing training ground. In the early 90s the company was still so small that the members of my “graduating class” really had the benefit of hands-on mentoring from senior management. A lot of amazingly talented people got their start at PTA and have gone on to great success.
