Making the Transition From TV Reporter to Healthcare PR

UPDATE: If you missed the live chat, you can watch the video recording of our discussion in the video below:

As the Healthcare IT Marketing and PR Community (HITMC) grows, it never ceases to amaze me the diversity of people that end up working in healthcare PR and Marketing. We’re lucky to have such a diversity of backgrounds available in the community and I think that makes us stronger for it.

One example of this is Marcy Fleisher from Team Fleisher Communications who started as an on air TV reporter (Check out this great flashback video of Marcy). On Tuesday, January 26, 2016 at Noon ET (9 AM PT), I’ll be sitting down with Marcy Fleisher to talk over the lessons she learned as she entered healthcare PR and things healthcare could learn from her experience as a TV reporter.

You can join my live conversation with Marcy Fleisher and even add your own comments to the discussion or ask Marcy questions. All you need to do to watch live is visit this blog post on Tuesday, January 26, 2016 at Noon ET (9 AM PT) and watch the video embed at the bottom of the post. You can also subscribe to the blab directly. We’ll be doing a more formal interview for the first 30 minutes and then open up the Blab to others who want to add to the conversation or ask us questions. The conversation will be recorded as well and available on this post after the interview.

I’m personally very excited to sit down and talk with Marcy about her transition to healthcare public relations. I first met Marcy when she planted herself in front of the press room at HIMSS much like a reporter might do to get a story. She stopped me and pitched me a story for one of the companies she represents. Since then, she’s always brought a wide variety of creative ways to pitch me her client’s stories. I think much of that is attributed to her experience as a TV reporter. I hope you’ll join us on Tuesday so we can all learn from Marcy’s experience.
