After 8 years at CNBC and nearly 27 years working in news, Mike Huckman left the media business last spring for a job in PR. Now, a year and a half later, Huckman, SVP and director of media strategy at MSLGroup, offers advice for other transitioning journalists. In a guest post on PRNewser, Huckman writes, “Stuff I used to report on from the outside looking in, I am now seeing first-hand and working on from the inner sanctum. It’s exactly why I wanted to make this move.”
