Ruth Presslaff, founder of Presslaff Interactive Revenue has been working in the media since her college days. A quick trip across some of her favorite cities took Ruth from running her college radio station in New Orleans to Affiliate Relations in New York City and Washington, D.C., to Director of Network Sales in Chicago, followed by a return to DC to become VP of Affiliate Relations for the United Stations, all by the ripe age of 25.
Presslaff started The Media Gallery, Inc., now Presslaff Interactive Revenue as a means of bringing media companies innovative, interactive products. The company’s reputation is built on providing both the technical and marketing support necessary to ensure each client’s greatest success.
Ruth’s a sought after speaker and has been highlighted at numerous conferences including the National Association of Broadcasters, Commercial Radio Australia, Local Media Association conferences of all stripes and the Radio Advertising Bureau Managing Conference.
