Berlin Media Relations focuses on building exposure for its clients.
At BMR, we strategically tailor each client’s publicity plan to maximize their media exposure. Specializing in television, radio, print and web placements, BMR is the direct conduit for clients with press that they want and need to attract. As a former TV reporter and producer, BMR president Tony Berlin knows what it takes to ensure that each client is effectively pitched to the media.
Beyond strategizing an outreach plan, Tony has built extensive relationships with key members of the press, and individually fields requests every single day to help fulfill their booking needs. At BMR, we’re not only able to promote you and your company/product directly, but we’re also able to plug you into fast-changing and breaking news stories by making you the go-to expert in your industry.
