CHICAGO, IL, March 26, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The first PR news service to incorporate video, a morning news briefing, how-to feature stories and a 15,500-member professional network debuted last Wednesday.
"Now you can read the news, study PR tools and strategies and connect with other communicators from around the world---all within a single web site," said Mark Ragan, CEO of the Chicago-based Ragan Communications.
Ragan's PR Daily is the latest addition to Ragan's suite of web sites.
Two years ago, the company launched Ragan.com, which quickly became the world's top news and information site for corporate communicators, attracting more than 100,000 visitors monthly.
"Our goal is to deliver PR Daily every morning through a simple news feed that is free to anyone who signs up," CEO Ragan said.
While several companies publish daily reports for PR professionals, only Ragan's PR Daily includes a video platform with hundreds of newsmaker interviews and a social network boasting 15,500 members.
Stories published in the opening issue of PR Daily included an interview with New York Times personal technology columnist David Pogue, a feature on the popular web site Help a Reporter Out, tips on running better press conferences and an exhaustive morning news roundup. The PR Daily video site carries interviews with experts on speechwriting, story pitching and web content.
