TCI has the answer. 

Clients who work with us know that we deliver exceptional results through our Radio Media Tour/RMT-Online service. But there’s never been a clear road map to guide what PR pros should do after the completion of an RMT.   

Now, that is changing.

TCI recently produced a Radio Media Tour for our client, the Center to Advance Palliative Care at Mt. Sinai’s School of Medicine. Soon after the tour was completed, we produced a compelling 1-minute video that highlights the key message points from the tour. WATCH the video here — and contact us to learn how a Radio Media Tour, and after-tour video produced by TCI, can help bolster your communications/social media campaigns.

WATCH a 1-minute video that captures our chance encounter with a bird bander from the Southern Maryland Audubon Society.

Early July — For the past 12 years, my wife and I have lived in a house near the shores of a tributary of the Potomac River in rural Charles County, Maryland. When you live just dozens of feet from a river, it’s both a breathtaking and eye-opening experience, especially for someone who grew up in suburbia and didn’t have that much knowledge about, or access to, wildlife and nature. 

Not to be overly cliché, but moving to this home – near this river I have grown to love and closely study – changed my life in ways I never expected. For instance, after someone years back cut down a nearby osprey nest in a tree, my wife and I had a sturdy box built and it was affixed to a mooring near our pier. Since then, an osprey couple has been migrating yearly from Central or South America to that box to mate and raise their young. It has been exciting watching the juveniles flourish as they learn how to fly and hunt in the relentless fashion that raptors do. 

Recently, in the aftermath of yard cleanup from the recent derecho that pounded the Washington, D.C. metro area, we were surprised to see a boat near our dock, and a wildlife expert holding one of the nestlings. We soon discovered that the visit was part of a volunteer bird-banding effort by the U.S. Geological Survey and the Southern Maryland Audubon Society. “Bird banding is a universal and indispensable technique for studying the movement, survival and behavior of birds,” according to the USGS.

WATCH the video to learn more about this chance encounter and stay tuned for a forthcoming book, “Liastona and The Talon Kings,” written by my colleague and wife, Debra Zimmerman Murphey. The book is a fantastical tale – based on real human and birds-of-prey facts and experiences – that will open readers’ minds up to what ospreys, their lives and habits are like. It will also make your imagination soar as Murphey creates a fictional world in which the osprey species fights for survival against the backdrop of a struggling planet, dying waterways and the dreaded era of “Liastona.”

Enjoy your summer — Maury Tobin
