Helpful tips, tutorials and news related to our industry.

Working in public relations, I find myself often glued to the news. My wife hates that I listen to news radio in the car but I can’t help it. I’ll confess, I’m a news junky! As a busy entrepreneur, I can’t always find myself in front of the TV at the right time or have the attention span to read a whole newspaper these days. Luckily, my mobile phone has become a great source for news and information, thanks to a handful of news apps.

Here’s a list of Chicago news apps I use to help keep track of the news for myself and to keep an eye on the headlines for our Chicago public relations clients. I hope you find this resource list useful for monitoring your brand’s news.
