When it comes to pitching stories that media love, fellow Dayton, Ohio, native Patricia (Patty) Allen is one of the best PR people I’ve had the privilege to call both a colleague and a friend.
As Ohio State University Fisher College of Business’s associate director of Communications, Patty is responsible for cultivating media relationships for Fisher, and for supporting the social media and institutional communications at this top 25 business school. Today, as part of my month-long celebration of my clients’ storytelling journeys, I talk to this accomplished media storyteller and Ohio University journalism alumnus about her approach to media pitching, the state of journalism and the PR field,  and how her experience as a journalist has helped her be successful. I was hired by NCR when it was owned in the 1990s by AT&T, which had a reputation for hiring news reporters.
I was able to look at press announcements and story pitches before I executed them and understand what would sell to reporters and editors because I had been in their shoes. Forgetting that it is not just the reporter you have to pitch the story to, but it is the editor who ultimately makes the decision of what ends up in print or on the air. I develop the story from the audience perspective as well as from my organization’s perspective. For instance, my recent successful pitch to Bloomberg Businessweek Online was about the use of the iPad by the marching band. While producing the iPad story for our internal use, we also developed great visuals utilizing our video team. Patty has worked in the communications and public relations field for nearly three decades.

On 7th March 2014, American students participating in a research internship at the Institute of Aviation have their presentation about the Ohio State University.
The presentation involved information about engineering faculties, labs and research centres, educational programmes and recreational offer of the university. After the presentation students were asked about their impressions about their stay in Poland.
Students are participating in a three-month research internship in the framework of bilateral agreement between the Institute of Aviation and the Ohio State University.


In accordance with a mutual desire to promote further cooperation in higher education between the United States of America and Poland, The Faculty of Power and Aeronautical Engineering at The Warsaw University of Technology and The Institute of Aviation, Warsaw, Poland and The Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, USA signed a formal agreement for the purpose of educational and cultural exchange. The Institute of Aviation in Warsaw and the University of Brasilia (Universidade de Brasilia), one of the largest and most important federal universities in Brazil, decided to begin cooperation in November 2014, during a visit in Brazil by a delegation from the Institute of Aviation. A multi-talented storyteller, Patty was instrumental in helping me understand Fisher’s environment when I wrote two Fisher annual reports, one of which received a PRism Award from the Columbus chapter of PRSA. Also, inside of the corporation I was able to use my news hound skills to find the stories that would resonate with people in my former field.
Traditionally there has been tension between PR and media folks – do you think that’s changing?
What are the most common mistake media relations folks make that alienate them from journalists?
Sometimes it is giving them way too much information from the organizations side they represent and not recognizing the need to be concise and, most importantly, relevant to both audiences of the news organizations. While Businessweek was looking for stories about tailgating traditions or ways to use tailgating to attract b-school alumni, I took another approach in pitching a story about football season and talked about the Ohio State half-time show.
So we had other great assets that we used on our YouTube channel and Facebook page that we made available to reporters as links to enhance their story. Reporters atmost news organizations, even the national media, have scaled back so much, they don’t have the resources to spend on hiring photographers or videographers (especially if the story is not in their backyard) to allow them to capture visuals.
After beginning her career in corporate communications at NCR and AT&T, the last 15 years, she has served in higher education communications first at New York University, then Princeton University before her current position at The Ohio State University. There was also a lot of interest about how easy to join, prevalent and fund student clubs at the Ohio State University. Both sides decided to create the Polish-Brazilian Center of Excellence in Aviation and Space High Technology and to organize the Polish-Brazilian Conference on Science and Technology. Her support laid the foundation for me to secure writing work from other Executive Education clients nationally. As a former reporter, obviously I knew what other reporters looked for in stories and what their editors look for in stories.


I remember after I had become a PR person and made the switch, I felt like both a traitor and an outsider when I attended national conferences. As much as telling the story from our organization’s standpoint and providing that information, an important part of the practice is looking on the outside of the organization you represent and finding the bigger trends and answering the question why should the public care about a certain topic or issue being pitched. Ohio State had a business student in the Marching Band who had convinced university administrators to adopt iPads to reduce paper waste for printing music and halftime show choreography for the band. Already having those assets available to them makes putting their story together much easier. It happened shortly after the museum was scheduled to open for the day with a Picasso-inspired show on display. As the years went on and as newspapers were in decline, both journalists from print and broadcast were losing their jobs and finding it more difficult to obtain jobs in the field.
The student was able to use lessons he learned in his business class to draw up a business proposal.
Scripps School of Journalism, she worked for more than five years as a newspaper reporter in Massachusetts and Ohio, including at the Cape Cod Times and The Dayton Daily News.
OIG provided copies of its report to Columbus and Franklin County prosecutors, as well as the Ohio Ethics Commission.
So by the early 2000s and on, I remember attending the NABJ national conferences and instead of feeling like a traitor or an outsider, people sought me out trying to learn from me how I made the transition. So instead of being lumped into a story about football season at business schools, I was able to present a story to Businessweek that illustrated a talented business student using b-school curriculum to improve efficiency in his extra curricular activity. The fact that the video appeared on The Chronicle of Higher Education website drove new audiences to Ohio State’s social media vehicles. So we achieved a separate story, which received prominence from the rest of the business schools who were lumped into a bigger story about college football season.
