As a public relations professional, I try to stay in touch with the latest PR and social media news. Sometimes it can be hard with keeping up with national and international news, let alone specific industry updates. Luckily there are a few great sources that aggregate PR news and send it directly to your email inbox. Below I list some of my preferred sources for finding out what’s new in the world of PR.
- PR Daily is one of the easiest websites to sign up for. Visit prdaily.com and you’ll see a button to subscribe to their News Feed. The site initially will sign you up for a large number of daily emails. If it ends up being too much, you can always adjust your settings to your needs. PR Daily is a consistent and reliable source of PR-relevant topics.
- PR News Online is also a savvy source of news for communicators. When visiting the homepage, visitors can enter in their email address to get industry alerts. Like PR Daily, PR News Online includes both news articles and tips for professionals.
- Unlike the other two, The Skimm isn’t exclusive to PR professionals. However, The Skimm acts as a supplementary source of other news. Working in PR often requires practitioners to keep up with current events. The Skimm is one of the easiest ways to do this, given their daily emails that summarize the biggest headlines in the world.
- PR Week gives readers more traditional headlines like who’s elected to corporate PR positions or the contracts that certain agencies are signing. PR Week is a straight forward source of industry news that helps give a big picture look at the field.
