Whiting Publicity Specializes in the Arts,

Entertainment, Hospitality and Tourism Industries

    Whiting Publicity & Promotions has been providing award-winning PR services for more than 20 years, "publicizing the dreams" of businesses, organizations, professionals and artists of all kinds.

    In this fast-changing technological age, getting the word out about your career, company or organization has become more important than ever.


    To be effective in PR, it’s important to “do what the journalists do”. That process has helped us land news coverage on local, regional, national and international levels. We work with our customers to develop a “newsworthy” hook and present a well-written story (press release) in a format that’s easy for the editors to use. Every calendar item, press release, PSA and bio we write and distribute is written in Associated Press and/or broadcast style with the utmost attention to excellent organization, readability, sentence structure, spelling and grammar. They can easily be adapted for use on social networking sites, including Facebook, Twitter, Google, Linked-In, Reverb Nation, and many others.

    Led by a former newspaper reporter, the Whiting Publicity team has the knowledge, skills and experience to do a terrific job for your organization.  We’ve won awards from the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), the International Association Business Communicators (IABC), the Public Relations Council of Alabama, the Songwriters Guild of America, and Sigma Delta Chi, the Society of Professional Journalists. 


    There's no discounting the value of publicity in the success of a business or career. Did you know that a print or broadcast story can remain in the Internet search engines for years? Positive news media exposure boosts one's credibility, confidence, exposure and sales.

    "For PR to be successful for you, you must enter into it for the long haul," says watercolor artist/instructor Gail McDaniel, who has developed a host of newsworthy activities to land coverage in print, radio and television. "It is not a short term or one-shot proposition!  Over the years, [Whiting Publicity] continues to get great placements for me."


    Do you need help communicating your message?  If you do, we're eager to roll up our sleeves and get to work.  As a dedicated team player, we take great pride in helping professionals achieve success. Following are some of the PR services we can provide:
