Media and Public Relations

The definition of media is ever-changing, including traditional media such as print, radio, and television, controlled media outreach achieved through advertising, and social media managed by a wide array of stakeholders. Straife has a dedicated team of media relations experts with the experience and relationships to provide strategic media counsel — whether traditional, controlled, or social — whenever clients need it. We help manage interactions with the media, proactively and reactively, to drive positive opinions, beliefs, and behaviors. Additionally, we provide continuous media intelligence on future editorial content and potential interview and partnership opportunities.

Straife communications specialists leverage their deep sector expertise and understanding of media, capital markets, government, and other stakeholders to help organizations express their insights, ideas, and perspectives. We turn business leaders into thought leaders. Additionally, we offer recommendations on the best way to engage with the media to inform, empower, and de-risk interviews through efficient communications coaching solutions.
