“De Shields Associates were recommended to us as ‘the best in the business’ when we began searching for help with station-relations, and that praise was spot-on. In the three-plus years since then, the De Shields Associates team has been indispensable to Story in the Public Square. They literally took us under their wing; taught us about successfully producing a show for public television; provided both praise and criticism when warranted; shepherded us around in-person and virtual industry meetings; and helped us navigate the unprecedented challenges of producing in the midst of a global pandemic. They are more than just our consultants, they are our partners and a critical part of our success. Thank you for all you do and congratulations on your 25th anniversary!”
