TOPIC: Gazing into the Crystal Ball: The Outlook for Local Business and Media in 2009
The stock market is down. Unemployment is up. Retailers are slashing prices right and left or, worse yet, closing their doors. It seems as if everyone, from automakers to major cities, is looking to Washington for a bailout.
But what is the economic outlook closer to home? And will the dire predictions for the future of mainstream media come true? More importantly, how will the economic climate in North Texas and changes in the media world affect public relations practitioners? Find out when Mitchell Schnurman, Business columnist for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, looks into his crystal ball and shares his predictions for local business, from both a media and PR viewpoint. Start the New Year off right and join us for a look into the future at the Greater Fort Worth Chapter of PRSA monthly luncheon Wednesday, Jan. 14, at the Petroleum Club.
