BOSTON – May 1, 2017 – The Publicity Club of New England is thrilled to announce the finalists of the 2017 Bell Ringer Awards. Following a submission period that included an impressive number of data-driven, head-turning entries, and a rigorous judging panel comprised of industry leaders, the Publicity Club looks forward to celebrating the winners at the 49th annual awards ceremony on June 1.

“Our finalists reflect the top talent and innovation that characterizes Boston’s PR and marketing industry,” said Cheryl Gale, Publicity Club president and managing director of March Communications. “This year’s finalists are standouts in digital, experiential, and more – and they share the common thread of driving business results and brand equity for their clients, teams, or partners.”


This year, the Bell Ringers event will be returning to the Revere Hotel’s Liberty Hall in Boston. An evening of merriment and reflection on New England’s best PR and marketing campaigns and initiatives of the year, the celebration is a long-standing tradition that is open to all industry professionals. This year’s event will feature a delicious family-style dinner and complimentary wine with the meal. The always-popular cocktail hour and awards presentation will feature new and exciting additions as well.


This year’s host will be Josh Brogadir, anchor and reporter for WCVB, Boston’s ABC affiliate. Brogadir is a bilingual news reporter, sports anchor, and play-by-play broadcaster with more than a decade of experience on-screen. The Publicity Club’s board of directors is thrilled to have him and his many talents lined up for the ceremony.
