PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The PRSA 2013 International Conference theme, One World: Connection. Community. Collaboration., sets the tone for an event which serves as a meeting point for PR professionals to come together and discuss the changing face of PR and associated challenges and opportunities. One of the major changes the industry faces is the evolution of the media, from technology updates in the newsroom to the alignment of coverage with audience interest. Our onsite team is covering important themes for PR today, and you can find all of their posts here:


  • Redefining Newsworthiness & Finding New Opportunity for PR: As news outlets move toward a model that provides coverage based on audience interest and the likelihood of social sharing and engagement, it is important for public relations professionals to rethink and challenge their traditional definition of what news is.
  • The Media Evolution: Is Your Content Keeping Up?: Newsrooms and reporters are changing with the inclusion of technology in their day-to-day operations. Many of these changes place an emphasis on the growing need for visual and digital content, which has been proven to engage the audience at a higher level than plain-text1. Communications teams need to reevaluate the type of content they are producing in order to secure earned media and engage their target audience.

Sarah Skerik, PR Newswire's Vice President, Content Marketing, will explore these issues in further detail in her session, Newsworthiness: New Context & Opportunities for PR, Tuesday, October 29th at 8am in Franklin 3.
