WASHINGTON, DC: The organizers of next year’s Republican National

Convention have returned to the tried-and-true by putting Mike Miller in

charge of media operations.



A former Scripps-Howard reporter and associate of the now-dissolved PR

firm of Wagner & Baroody, Miller has handled media duties for the last

seven conventions. He said, however, that the GOP will place greater

emphasis than in 1996 on meeting the needs of online journalists.



The convention is to be held next July in Philadelphia, a location which

should attract a strong showing from media organizations based in New

York and Washington, DC.



PR has proved a key component of recent political conventions. For

instance, the Democrats wisely featured an appearance by paralyzed actor

Christopher Reeve during their last get-together.
