I am announcing today that Herald Media Inc. no longer retains Regan Communications Group as its agency of record. Our public relations functions are now handled in-house. George Regan’s business in the Boston area and beyond has grown considerably and his client list includes many corporations and organizations we report on. As a newsgathering operation, it is imperative that our coverage continues to be impartial and in recognition of Regan Communications’ tremendous expansion, ending our relationship avoids any potential conflict. George has been a personal friend of my family for over two decades, and we look forward to enjoying that relationship for many years to come.
We've had a good relationship with the Herald, and we continue to have a good relationship with the Herald and Pat. That hasn't changed. They brought the PR function in house, and we understand that.
