CPR December Coverage Roundup

A little over a month has passed since the release of the inaugural USC Annenberg Relevance Report and it has been well-received throughout the world of public relations and communications.

"I just wanted to say well done to the Relevance Report team. While a few articles resonated personally with me, each piece was unique and interesting," Elise Eberwein, Executive Vice President of People and Communications of American Airlines, said.

The Relevance Report is a collection of thought pieces on everything from virtual reality to Cuba. It features insights from communications leaders at world renowned brands such as United Airlines, Chevron, Instagram and Starbucks, as well as academic experts.

Below is a list of key trade publications that have recently covered the Relevance Report, along with some of our other work:
