PRWeek has long believed in the power of the press. But even we were surprised by just how powerful the utterances of an individual reporter can be.Two weeks ago, Midwest correspondent John Frank spoke to the Columbus, OH PRSA chapter. Upon returning to his office in Chicago, he got a note from Susan Merryman, president of the Central Ohio chapter.
Merryman informed Frank that shortly after hearing his speech, her pregnant chapter administrator went into early labor. "Your presentation,
she wrote, "was very powerful."
Expectant PR pros anxious to commence their trips to the maternity ward should go to Frank's next PRSA talk, scheduled for April 11 in Detroit.
