(SACRAMENTO)—Perry Communications Group (PCG), a California-based strategic communications firm specializing in integrated public affairs campaigns and media relations, is pleased to announce the hiring of Marna Davis as account manager.

“We are pleased tMarna Headshoto have Marna and her decades of experience in radio and television news join the team,” said PCG’s President and CEO Kassy Perry. “If it’s happened in the past 20 years, Marna has probably reported on it. The combination of her relationships with former colleagues across the nation and exceptional storytelling talents grabs the attention of newsrooms.”

As an account manager, Davis provides media relations expertise and creative direction to multiple client accounts.

Marna’s news career began in Santa Barbara County, where she landed the lead story on “SportsCenter” her first day in the newsroom. She has also worked at stations in Reno, Sacramento, San Diego and Dallas/Fort Worth.

She has experience broadcasting from high profile trials, earthquakes, fires, kidnappings, presidential visits, elections, police shootings, the Dallas Cowboys, Superbowls and NBA championships. Davis received a national Edward R. Murrow award for her reporting on methamphetamine use and she and her colleagues won a regional Emmy for reporting on the Southwest Blackout of 2011 that left nearly seven million people without power.

She secured some of the biggest names in sports endorsement deals, provided media coaching and kept high profile athletes out of the news by creating and implementing successful crisis communication plans.
