PRWeek news editor Frank Washkuch starts the conversation with Business Wire president Gregg Castano, who's worked at the press release distribution service since 1985. He touches on the ever-changing news environment and distribution models, the BizWire TV initiative, and reminds listeners that the press release is definitely not dead. 

PRWeek's healthcare and public affairs reporter Alison Kanski lays out Skittlesgate, Donald Trump Jr.'s latest tasteless tweet, comparing Syrian refugees to the colorful candy, and the team talks about several recent agency business deals.
