EAST LANSING, MI – Local marketing and advertising agency King Media has won first place in the PR News Agency Elite Awards in the category of Digital/Social Media.

King Media bested four other finalists, all of whom are located in major metropolitan areas and represent national and global clients. This is King Media’s fifth national award in two years, reflecting the agency’s commitment to growth and innovation.

The honor recognizes the award-winning work King Media performed for Tabor Hill Winery & Restaurant. In 2016, King Media planned and executed a multi-channel campaign to help Tabor Hill Winery & Restaurant earn a coveted spot in the USA Today 10Best American Winery Restaurant competition. Competing with wineries in California, Washington and other highly populated areas of the country, King Media successfully used social media to reach vast numbers of loyal brand enthusiasts. At the end of the three week public voting period, Tabor Hill Winery & Restaurant had climbed from 16th place to 4th place, earning Top 10 honors. Read the expanded case study here.

King Media was recognized alongside major global brands like Bank of America, Dell and Revlon at the PR News Agency Elite Awards Luncheon in New York City on September 14, 2017. “The Agency Elite Awards are more than just our way of honoring the year’s top teams and individual campaigns—taken together, they also celebrate the vision, ingenuity and passion of a rapidly evolving profession,” says Jerry Ascierto, executive editor of PR News. “Given the overwhelming quality and quantity of submissions, our judges had an extremely difficult task this year.”

President and Founder Coleen King accepted the award on behalf of the agency. “Clients often call King Media small but mighty. I think we’re mighty because we’re small,” says Ms. King. “Our tight-knit team develops outstanding results for our clients, and we’re so grateful for this recognition at the national level.”
