Katie Eldridge,  founded Panic Button Media in 2006 with the aim of representing likeminded businessfolk with stories to tell. Katie’s successful career as a television news anchor and reporter, followed by her role as Communications Director for The Canyons Ski Resort, built up to the moment Panic Button was born.

Today, Katie and her team represent an eclectic variety of businesses in nearly every imaginable capacity. They know how to speak to and with the media, and their network of resources give them the agility to do everything from producing a video to creating a website, hyping up a big launch, or shining the spotlight on a newsworthy story.

Panic Button Media knows how to get the attention of the media. They are a results-driven firm with a laser sharp perspective. The New York Times article they landed for us in the first few months we were open is a perfect example.

There are two tricky things that happen when you hire a PR firm. The first is chemistry, the second value. Katie and her team hit home runs on both of those. Panic Button Media got the press exposure we needed.
