Webster Public Relations has hired former Essential Broadcast Media publicist Amanda French Clark and music publicist Melissa Mathews.
“After a brief hiatus from the field, I’m tremendously excited to be coming on board at Webster PR and getting back to doing what I love,” said Clark. “Webster PR’s resources and experience in the industry are unparalleled, and I look forward to working with Kirt and his staff to push our clients to the next level.”
Clark, a Belmont University graduate, will reside in Kentucky and work from a satellite office handling clients including Kenny Rogers, The Kentucky Headhunters, The Kentucky Music Hall of Fame, Larry’s Country Diner & Country’s Family Reunion, Reviver Records (LOCASH & Samantha Landrum), among others. Clark has previously worked with Eric Church, Randy Houser, Brantley Gilbert, Kellie Pickler, Josh Turner, Jerrod Niemann, James Otto, Sarah Darling and others.
Mathews began her public relations career at Evelyn Shriver Public Relations and later launched StarKeeper PR. She will represent Hank Williams, Jr., Janie Fricke, Ronnie McDowell, Leroy Van Dyke, Moe Bandy, and Jim Ed Brown. “You see for me it’s not about multi-platinum sales, walking the red carpet or attending award shows,” says Mathews of her love for music. “I love this business for the times I’ve gotten to share a bowl of popcorn with Chet Atkins while he played “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” on his guitar, Tammy Wynette calling me her little Alabama girl and the time Willie Nelson sliced a peach with his pocket knife and shared it with me on his tour bus.”
