KHOU_11_Logo_NO_BOX_sm.jpg

As public relations professionals, we often experience reporters not interested in our story ideas or events.  Whether you are a novice or a seasoned professional, join PRSA Houston for our latest Media Mixer on March 18 as we explore how to get reporters excited about your story ideas, events and press conferences. The event will start with a tour of the KHOU studio followed by Q&A with KHOU reporter Rucks Russell.

Russell will share his insights on how to effectively communicate with reporters, pitch stories, write press releases/media alerts and how to develop ongoing relationships with reporters.  

Space is limited so register now.

For questions about the event or the Media Mixer Committee, contact Ania Czarnecka at aczarnecka@wardcc.com or Claudia Nwaogu at cnwaogu@housingforhouston.com.

KHOU 11 News Reporter Rucks Russell combines years of experience with a hard-hitting, aggressive style.


His pursuit of the "big story" has literally carried him around the world. This includes stints as an embedded correspondent at the outset of the Iraq war, as well as covering the summer Olympics in Athens, Greece.


Russell has also exposed the gritty reality of gang violence, scoring exclusive in-depth interviews with Crips and Bloods members during a series of highly acclaimed reports in North Carolina.


Russell started his career behind the scenes. He dispatched news crews and gathered information for a Philadelphia television station.


Prior to joining KHOU 11 News, Rucks worked in Raleigh, NC; Richmond, VA; Washington, D.C.; Orlando, Fla. and Roanoke, VA.


Russell received his bachelor's degree in journalism from Rider University in Lawrenceville, N.J. He also studied abroad in Besancon, France.
