An Obituary for Public Relations We are saddened to say that Public Relations has passed away after many years of barely hanging on. PR was surrounded by members of the industry, many of whom are unable to let go and perhaps who are even still in denial, while others in attendance — we have to say — were glad to see PR go. Surviving is PR’s successor, Content Relations. Content Relations will be fulfilling all of Public Relations' duties moving forward. Rest peacefully, PR.
