This week’s guest, Molly Aldridge, global CEO at M&C Saatchi PR, stops by from across the pond to talk about the entrepreneurial spirit of the firm’s rapid U.S. expansion and taking on new clients.

News editor Frank Washkuch weighs in on Project’s recent acquisition of Brooklyn-based agency Praytell and the end of revolutionary web publication Gawker.com.  

The 2016 Rio Olympics is churning out more unique stories, from gold-medal gymnast Simone Biles’ invitation to Belize, to the U.S. men's swimming team's gas station debacle, to everyone’s favorite athlete and Jamaican track star, Usain Bolt.  

And speaking of athletes, PRWeek’s editor-in-chief, Steve Barrett, raises awareness of veteran suicide prevention by participating in the 22-Push Up Challenge.
