You haven’t seen a thing until you’ve seen Atlanta’s PR pros pitch live! Our popular annual PRSA Georgia Chapter media panel is interactive this year. Seven of the city’s top pitchers will test their skills in front of a panel of five intrepid journalists representing bureaus, broadcast and blogs. During our first ever “Pitch Tank,” you’ll get to hear from top editors, hosts and writers about what makes an effective pitch as they provide candid, constructive feedback to our participants. Then, we’ll share YOUR story ideas with these top influencers through a “blind pitching” round, so come ready to share!

This year’s panel includes a range of agenda-setting journalists who cover hard news, features and everything in between:

   Jonathan Landrum, Business Writer, Associated Press

 Elissa Rosen, Lifestyle Writer, People Magazine
   Paul Milliken, Feature Reporter, Fox 5 Good Day Atlanta
   Adam Kincaid, Culture Writer, Bitter Southerner and AJC.com

 Sean Powers, Reporter, Georgia Public Broadcasting
