Former NBC News Man Joins Family’s PR Firm

JSeigenthaler_7.17.jpgJohn Seigenthaler, who was one of the original anchors at MSNBC and went on to anchor the weekend editions of NBC Nightly News, is joining his family’s public relations firm, based in Nashville.

Seigenthaler has joined Seigenthaler Public Relations Inc. as partner and CEO of the New York office. “For both professional and personal reasons I look forward to helping lead this company that bears my family name,” Seigenthaler said in a statement. “I had the great opportunity to serve as a network anchor and journalist during a period when television provided most of our citizens most of their information.

“That media landscape has changed dramatically with the magnetic pull of the Internet, and the movement toward convergence. The transition offers those of us with professional communications skills and experience to serve new constituencies in fascinating ways.”

Seigenthaler is the son of legendary journalist John Seigenthaler, Sr. whose brother, Tom, started Seigenthaler Public Relations in 1972. His cousin, Beth Seigenthaler Courtney, is chairman and CEO.
