Here, delivered to me a day late, is the announcement of the merger between the CJRW and Heathcott ad/pr firms.

Buzz in the community for weeks had been about what CJRW planned to hold on to the immense state tourism account and ancillary publishing opportunities it carries. Having Gary Heathcott, whose agency worked for Asa Hutchinson’s campaign, on board, couldn’t hurt. I’d also been hearing that Heathcott was preparing for a move to Texas to be near grandchildren. Perhaps not.
