Meet the Top 12 Public Relations Spirit Animals

Animals Cover_MOCKUP.inddSo I was gallivanting around Orange County the other week. Snazzy, right?

It’s not a humblebrag. I was checking out my new home with Bolt Public Relations (cheap, unsolicited plug…but really, call us) when a lovely young lady and PR pro who appreciates my great fraternity happened to mention the phrase ‘Spirit Animal’ during lunch.

While laughs abounded among some of us and bewilderment loomed overhead for others, we got to thinking about the inspiration behind this post. “Who would be the most ferocious PR Spirit Animals?” 

No, this list will not include Jennifer Lawrence—but gather ’round, flacks. Do these PR studs make you growl or purr, or do they just pee in the corner under the bed and leave it as a special surprise to start your day (no, I’m not happy with my dog right now)?

Flacks and flackettes, welcome to the PRNewser Spirit Animal zoo.

In Memoriam: Ofield Dukes, and More in the Roll Call

As we mentioned in The Ticker, Ofield Dukes died on Wednesday at the age of 79. Dukes worked with the LBJ administration and went on to open his own PR firm Ofield Dukes & Associates in 1969. His clients included Motown Records, CBS Records, and AT&T. He also consulted every Democratic presidential candidate since 1969, served as an adjunct professor at Howard and American Universities, was a journalist in his hometown of Detroit, and organized the first dinner of the Congressional Black Caucus in 1972. Dukes’ sister says he succumbed to a form of bone cancer. [via Washington Post]
