Publicist capitalizes on local Minneapolis publicity benefits

When Publicist Peggy Davies pitched a TV story that combined a Twin Cities resident’s personal struggle with obesity, a client’s products and a local fundraiser, Minneapolis media couldn’t resist. In an interview on Fox 9 KMSP’s Morning News, Terri Wehling opened up about how her lap band surgery inspired her chemist husband to formulate gelatin vitamins for those who’ve undergone bariatric surgery. Those supplements are now available from Ameriwell Bariatrics.

As an added benefit, this local TV news publicity raised awareness of Minneapolis’s first Walk from Obesity, which Ameriwell Bariatrics sponsored. Minnesotans raised 144 percent of the fundraiser’s goal. Our team counts on Peggy to secure interviews, especially those that touch on multiple topics. She knows that personal stories are media magnets and that local publicity can successfully promote community events.

Whether you’re looking for national or local publicity, give Peggy a call: 952-697-5212.
