Indy PR Firm Loses Out to Solo Practitioners
 
A sad note from Indianapolis, but apparently an indicator of the changes occurring in PR: Hetrick Communications, once a big Indianapolis PR firm, is closing, in large part as the result of competition from solo operators "with less overhead than office-based firms...Now it's much more a climate of one project at a time," says Bruce Hetrick, the firm's owner.

Of Hetrick's 20 remaining clients, only two have long-term contracts, says the firm's "obit" in the Indianapolis Star.
