SpeedBriefings: Editor Hadley Keller, Architectural Digest Magazine

Merlot’s SpeedBriefings™ With…

We are turning the tables on the media! It’s time for PR pros to interview editors and reporters instead of just pitching them. Our aim is to understand how changes in technology and human behavior are affecting their business, and to determine what we (as public relations professionals) can do to better serve this evolving print/digital industry.

In this episode, we interview Hadley Keller, formerly the founding editor at Architectural Digest AD PRO and currently, senior editor at House Beautiful. Hadley shares with us the best way to pitch the media, her thoughts on pitching for print and digital and how the industry is changing!
