2014-National awards for best customer service and technology, top awards for podcasting and audio, three regional awards for television production and hosting. See Http://LeonardSipes.Com for all awards.
I’m a graduate of several universities with a post-Master’s Degree from the Johns Hopkins University. I have 40 years in government with 35 years involved in media and public relations and social media at the national and state levels.
Media: I understand the media. I’ve been interviewed and quoted by every national news operation multiple times; from the New York Times to CBS Evening News to National Public Radio to Entertainment Tonight to national talk shows, I have done them all. I have been directly responsible for tens of thousands of difficult media requests.
Marketing and Clearinghouses: I operated clearinghouses for the federal government and spoke to the media. I was the federal government’s primary contact person for crime prevention for 10 years. I helped administer the “McGruff the Crime Dog-Take a Bite out of Crime” national media campaign; the nation’s most successful public service advertising effort. I used that experience to create five state-level media campaigns and all met or exceeded their goals.
Social Media: I hosted and produced government television and radio shows for 20 years and was the first in federal and state service to place radio shows on the Internet and interact with customers (the beginning of social media). I operate one of the country’s most popular social media platforms (television, radio, blog and transcripts) for my topic with 35 search terms on the front page of searches.
Emergency Media: I led emergency media operations for a wide variety of events including hurricanes, major snow storms, tornadoes, prison riots and police related incidents.
Bottom-line: All I am is someone who gets great enjoyment from assisting others in “cutting through the clutter” as to media and public relations relations and social media.
