Hume resident Jim Jennings, a seasoned Virginia/Washington, D.C. public/media relations professional, has launched a “boutique PR/Media shop” in Fauquier County.

Specializing in small business public/media relations, Jim Jennings Media Relations also will “assist clients with media training, public advocacy issues, legislative media relations and local government public affairs,” he said.

His media contact list “is extensive, both nationwide and locally,” Mr. Jennings added.

He has worked for the National Federation of Independent Business, the Virginia Department of Transportation, the American Society of Civil Engineers, the Allstate Insurance Co. and its national catastrophe team and the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Disaster Assistance Program.

Mr. Jennings has also directed media relations for political campaigning and has helped get front-page coverage in The Washington Post, a cover story in the Engineering News Record magazine and other coverage in The New York Times, the Kansas City Star, the Richmond Times-Dispatch, CNBC, MSNBC and NBC Nightly News.

As part of his media training experience, Mr. Jennings has conducted “Public Relations University” for engineers. PR University is a one-day seminar that provides spokesperson training as well as tips on writing press releases and letters to the editor and how to work with the media to get story placement.

A graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University, where he served as editor of The Commonwealth Times, Mr. Jennings started his career as a reporter on daily newspapers in Elmira, N.Y., with stints in Scranton, Pa., and Richmond.
