For more than 10 years Emily Pantelides worked as a news anchor and reporter for a half dozen different TV stations across the nation covering everything from the Olympic games to breaking news. She started her career as an intern at WTVT and WFTS in Tampa, then attended the University of Florida where she worked at the local PBS affiliate WUFT.

Emily was also awarded a spot in Georgia Trends magazine’s “Who’s Who in Broadcasting” and received the Georgia Association of Broadcasters prestigious GABBY award.
Emily’s experience with media relations and crisis management led her to become the media expert and spokesperson for Next Era Energy, a Fortune 500 company. Emily served as a highly trained media spokesperson, including on crisis communications teams. In her role, Emily was responsible for press training, developing and launching innovative media campaigns through traditional and social media channels and company reputation management.
Emily opened her public relations and consulting company, because she knew she offered something in the area other PR firms didn’t, a direct connection to the media.

Emily’s success is simple. She knows what the media is looking for because she was media! For her, press coverage is a matter of a phone call to former colleagues and dear friends and you won’t be able to find that in many other places.
