DIARY: Pass the aspirin, please, and I’ll read the news

We were intrigued to hear that an unnamed TV news presenter joined the team at Cohn and Wolfe for a lengthy media fact-finding session (read: booze-up) recently.

the team at Cohn and Wolfe for a lengthy media fact-finding session

(read: booze-up) recently.



In a private room at noted West End club Lounge-jing, a great deal of

dancing, drinking and general debauchery occurred into the wee hours of

Friday morning.



It saw a particularly tired and emotional TV journalist spend the

evening making a number of offers to the female clients and staff,

culminating in an unmissable proposal to one of the Cohn and Wolfe girls

to go back to his house for a Pot Noodle. Unexpectedly, she found it in

her to decline.



Cohn and Wolfe MD Martin Ellis said the occasion showed that PROs and

journalists were capable of ’meaningful media relations’, adding that

his guest showed a broad knowledge of ’current affairs’.



The justification for the bash, if any were needed, was the agency’s

five-star write-up in PR Week’s agency report. A range of Cohn and

Wolfe’s contacts were informed of the celebration, including staff at PR

Week, who, sadly, couldn’t make it at such short notice.



Actually, this was probably quite fortunate - we might well have been

the centre of a few diary stories ourselves. Pot Noodle, anyone?
