Entertainment PR in Hollywood
Hollywood & Entertainment
What is it really like in the entertainment industry? A question that has endless answers depending on what field you are working in. It goes without saying that PR has many different fields in communication and is going to be different depending on the business you want to work in. I have always been interested in the entertainment industry and wonder what a day in the life of a publicist is like. Or maybe someone who does PR for major film companies or TV networks.
In an article that I read, it sounds like being a Hollywood publicist involves making a lot of connections. That really doesn’t sound so bad, especially when you are helping someones career. In order to promote clients and make them more known to the public it is important to build strong relationships with people in the media (magazines, TV, radio, etc).
With Young Hollywood talent emerging everyday, they need to make their presence known; for their career as well as public awareness If you think about it, we may see these young people in movies but learn much more about who they are when their personal lives are displayed in magazine and television interviews. PR helps us relate to them.

Another job with publicists is to keep celebrities that have been around for a while in the spotlight. This may seem easy, but think about all of the competition today with celebrities and who is on top. They, as well as new talent, need to be in the media because as much as some of us may hate to admit it, we like to know whats going on with the rich and the famous.

Public relations may not be the first thing you think of when it comes to someone in the spotlight. Although publicists may appear to be behind the scenes, they are a huge influence on careers and reputations.
