RunSwitch PR To Host Media Filing Center At Annual Fancy Farm Picnic
New features: Snapchat filters and a Twitter message board for the public
(Fancy Farm, KY)- RunSwitch PR, Kentucky’s largest public relations and public affairs firm, will host the official media filing center at the 2016 St. Jerome’s Fancy Farm Picnic. This is the third consecutive year that RunSwitch PR has hosted the filing center for credentialed members of the media who travel to Fancy Farm, Kentucky for the annual barbecue picnic and political speaking. RunSwitch is also adding two features for everyone to enjoy: Snapchat filters for both parties and a large television to display scrolling Tweets and Instagram from picnic goers.
This year, the official RunSwitch Media Bus will feature high-speed internet sponsored by the Kentucky Telecom Association. Cold drinks, BBQ and air-conditioning will be provided. The media filing center was first introduced to the picnic in 2014 as an auxiliary workspace for journalists and commentators who need to file information in a timely fashion.
“Media help disseminate the news of the day from our world-famous event at Fancy Farm, and we want to make it as easy as possible for them to do so,” said Mark Wilson, political chairman of the picnic. “St. Jerome’s is grateful to partner with RunSwitch PR to provide this service to media once again.”
New to Fancy Farm this year, picnic goers will be able to use Snapchat filters throughout the day. The filters will allow picnic participants to put their own creative Fancy Farm stamp on selfies and event photos. A social media screen will also be displayed at the media bus, featuring a scrolling display of Fancy Farm tweets and Instagram photos.
