The BBB operates one of the most extensive media and public relations efforts in the area. We offer a wide range of story ideas on consumer, business, charity, and advertising topics. Our subject matter ranges from undercover investigations of scams to helpful business and consumer shopping tips. We are featured heavily in local media venues and, on occasion, we work with national publications and television news magazines.
A host of publications and educational materials are produced "in-house" by BBB staff to provide support to BBB Accredited Businesses, their employees, and the public.
