Being a publicity assistant requires me to be up-to-date with all of the latest news, culture and happenings. I use variety of media sources and little shortcuts to get all the info I need to stay on top of everything, without dedicating hours scouring the internet. I thought I might as well share these helpful little sites because the more the merrier!
They have a website and twitter. On here are just little bits of news. Nothing in depth but enough to refresh you about what is going on. It is a good jumping-off point. When you read something on here and it sounds interesting, you can always search the news more for additional information. (http://www.theskimm.com/)
