Media relations is far more complicated than it ever used to be. It now involves orchestration, big ideas, communication skills and true strategic thinking. Moving at the speed of light is the new normal. But the new sweeping scope and restless pace of news coverage doesn’t mean that all the old tools are useless. Far from it. They just need to be adapted to new audiences and the power of social media, and a new universe. It’s a mistake to define media as narrowly as we used to due to the power of social media.
