Earned Media By Matt

December 13, 2009

Matt's earned media record dates back to the late 1980s when he helped engineer and shape high-profile media coverage for his then-employer - a coalition of suburban mayors concerned about O'Hare Airport expansion plans - on CNN, NPR, Chicago radio and TV, and in The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun Times, myriad community newspapers, and other outlets. Over the course of a long career in strategic communications, journalism and policy advocacy, Matt has not only worked at center stage, but more often behind the scenes with media for a wide range of clients and employers. More in Matt's in-depth bio.

This compendium includes some representative samples of: 1) placements he has helped to achieve through ongoing outreach and relationship-building with media; 2) - op-eds he co-wrote without a byline. The period covered is mainly from 2/07 to 12/09, during Matt's tenure with the Seattle-based West Coast transportation think tank, Cascadia Center For Regional Development, where he has served as a Senior Fellow doing writing, research, blogging and social media, media relations and providing strategic communications counsel.

Other portfolios: Matt's own published writing on a range of topics; additional speciality writing on transportation; and direct news coverage of Matt's work.

Matt can provide hard copy documentation of other earned media over the last 20 years. He can also provide details of exactly how he helped facilitate each of the following placements.
