Viewing entries from Meagan Metkowski
Meagan Metkowski is a current UNC-Chapel Hill senior, and intern at Largemouth, from Charlotte, N.C. who loves her Tar Heels! When she isn’t trying to get tickets to the next UNC basketball game, she enjoys yoga and finding new recipes to make for her friends. As a soon-to-be graduate, Meagan hopes to put her degree to use by working for a public relations agency in Raleigh.
I recently had the opportunity to attend a Business Wire hosted “Meet the Media” luncheon featuring an impressive panel of three local journalists: News Director of NewsRadio 680 WPTF, The North Carolina News Network and StateGovernmentRadio.com, Rick Martinez; Co-Founder of WRAL Tech Wire and a previous editor and reporter at The News & Observer, Rick Smith; and the Assistant Business Editor of The News & Observer, David Bracken.
During the luncheon, the esteemed panel of guest speakers shared a recipient’s view on media pitching, a truly invaluable skill every practitioner in our industry aims to perfect.
Here's what they had to say...
I can still remember the day I decided that I wanted to work in public relations.
I had just finished my first semester at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and I felt unsure about which major was right for me. I knew that, whatever profession I chose, I wanted to be excited about going to work every day. After scrolling through the list of offered majors, I found public relations, and you can say the rest is history.
