Dan Abrams Launches Consulting Recruitment Firm

logo_abrams_research_grd.gifScared the media industry is about to implode? Well, there’s always consulting. Think about it: the short hours, the high wages, the rich clients. Sounds good, right?

Dan Abrams, the former chief legal correspondent at NBC News whose show was recently replaced by wonder-gal Rachel Maddow‘s, wants to help you get there.

Abrams, with the help of Rachel Sklar, launched Abrams Research, “a media strategy firm that connects business leaders with a global community of media professionals.”

Abrams told The Wall Street Journal that he already has a roster of “thousands” of media professionals and that billionaire investor Ronald Perelman is its first client.

Abrams Research boasts an impressive “Research Advisory Panel,” including Steven Brill, Bonnie Fuller, Lockhart Steele, Bob Wright, David Zinczenko, and Kevin Reilly. Sign us up.
