Franco On The Town: TV Segments, Baseball Games and Studio Visits

Summer isn’t slowing down and neither are we. From TV and radio segments to client events to baseball games, we were as hot as the scorching sun in July.

Media Relations for Metro Detroit Youth Day

We secured a FOX2 segment with anchors Amy Andrews and Jay Towers for client Ed Deeb, founder and chairman of Metro Detroit Youth Day and founder of the Michigan Food and Beverage Association. He talked about MDYD with eighth grade biology teacher Andrew Tisdale, who demonstrated a science experiment that the kids attending the annual event would participate in.

Metro Detroit Youth Day

We were delighted to support Metro Detroit Youth Day on Belle Isle – inspiring kids to do the most good. Nate, Megan, Jess and Joe had a blast coordinating live TV interviews and capturing pictures and video for social media.

We had the pleasure of meeting Governor Gretchen Whitmer, who was honored at Metro Detroit Youth Day. Not only did she give an inspiring speech, she also told us how Detroit inspires her – check out her video.

Comerica Hatch Detroit Contest TV Segments

Assistant Account Executive Joelle Kruczek and Senior Account Executive Jeff Sell are all smiles after a segment at WXYZ with anchor Anu Prakash featuring the 2019 Comerica Hatch Detroit Contest. Hatch Detroit Founder Nick Gorga and Chef Nikita Sanches of Rock City Eatery shared tasty tips about baking delicious 4th of July pies.

Jeff and Joelle also landed a segment at FOX 2 on “The Nine” with Ryan Ermanni and Deena Centofanti. It featured the winner of the 2016 Comerica Hatch Detroit Contest, Jenaveve Biernat of Meta Physica Massage and Wellness Center. She talked about ‘Everybody Deserves a Massage Week’ with Hatch Detroit Executive Director Vittoria Katanski.

Eat ‘Em Up Tigers

Our Franco family always has fun! We had an awesome time at a Detroit Tigers game.

WJR Studio Visit

We spent the morning at News/Talk 760 WJR with Paul W. Smith. President Tina Kozak joined him on-air to talk all things Franco.

From left to right: Andrea, Tina, Rachel, Maddie, Tracy, Geoff, Stephanie, Jess, Dan and Neekita snapped a group photo with Paul. Franco bid on and won a tour with Paul W. Smith as part of PRSA Detroit‘s Strikes for Scholarships event.

Renaissance Readers

Our Renaissance Readers book club is back in action! We read “Made to Stick” and discussed ways to make our ideas “stick” with our audience.

 

With the hottest month of the year behind us, we can’t wait to frolic around town in cooler weather next month.
