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.
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
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?
