Women Leaders in PR: EW‘s Beth Jacobson Brings Her Love of Music to Her PR Career

In our final installment of the Women Leaders series, we profile Beth Jacobson, senior director of PR at Entertainment Weekly. Jacobson started with a love of music and turned that into a PR career steeped in entertainment. But it wasn’t a straight line from college to career. Rather, Jacobson went with the thing she loved and ended up with a career she has always enjoyed.

PRNewser is always looking for good ideas so if you have any thoughts on what we should be doing, the comments section is open, you can contact us via Twitter, or email us at PRNewser@Mediabistro.com. We’re already cooking up a couple of thoughts for our next editorial series, so stay tuned.
