DIARY: Severe delays for voice of the Tube?

Those of you who read PRWeek's essential daily news bulletins will already be aware that the former 'voice' of the London Underground, Emma Clarke, has hired Bottle PR to handle her PR activity.

Strange stuff: Emma Clarke

The 'voiceover artist' and cheeky scamp was apparently sacked for criticising the tube on her website. Biting the hand that feeds and all that.

Bottle PR said it will highlight the issues she wants to campaign on, such as 'plain English and the need for internet royalties for voiceover artists'.

Oddly, Clarke does not want anyone to know what she looks like, and sent the above picture for Diary to use. So if you see a woman looking like a hamster being squeezed, muttering about delays on the District Line to Upminster, you know who she is.

Coincidentally, it appears Dan Hodges, the Transport for London PRO who also became caught up in the furore, has not been sacked, contrary to previous reports. PR chief Hodges joked Clarke could suffer 'severe delays' in getting more work after being fired. Having had his wrists slapped, it appears Hodges' career is back on track.
