Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 17, 2012
Strauss Radio Strategies, Inc. (SRS), the nation’s leading provider of strategic radio and television media relations services, today announced the addition of Matthew Lawrence, account executive, and Greg Pruett, assistant account executive, to its growing staff.
Lawrence, a political science and organizational communications double major, was most recently the national communications coordinator for the Young Invincibles, an advocacy non-profit for our nation’s youth. While there, he was responsible for the overall strategy and implementation of media campaigns for the organization. Among his duties, he booked and planned national television, radio, and print interviews. Before his work at the Young Invincibles, Lawrence served as a presidential appointee in the press office of the United States Trade Representative in the Executive Office of the President. While at the USTR he held the position of press assistant where he was responsible for the booking and logistics of television, radio, and print interviews.
“I am thrilled and honored to join such an influential and hardworking group of individuals as those here at Strauss,” said Lawrence. “My time in the public and non-profit sector will be a great value-add to the already highly experienced team.”
Prior to becoming a full-time member of the SRS team, Pruett interned with Strauss Radio Strategies as part of the UCDC program; a competitive academic internship experience offered through the University of California. Pruett’s interest in the industry began to flourish during his time as a radio host on his University of California at Santa Barbara campus radio station, KCSB. For nearly two years, Greg hosted and produced “True Believer Radio,” a talk/music show, a show consisting of rock music and discussions of international events.
“I could not be more excited to start my career at Strauss Radio Strategies,” said Pruett. “As a long-time radio fan, I could not pass up the chance to work with the premier name in the business. I consider myself very lucky to work in such a team-oriented and positive environment.”
“I’m so pleased to see Strauss Radio Strategies expanding,” added Richard Strauss, President and Founder of Strauss Radio Strategies. “Matt and Greg are wonderful additions to our growing team and I’m thrilled to have them on board with us.”
