Hollywood PR guru, American crisis manager, author, and ABC News consultant
February 27, 2019
Howard Bragman, world-reknowned PR guru and crisis manager, calls in from Hollywood to talk to Fish. Howard's Flint hometown roots include attending Coolidge Elementary and Zimmerman Junior High, (a West Side boy). To expand his Flint street cred, Howard clues us in about his mom being a Flint Central Indian and his dad a Flint Northern Viking!
Besides playing a strategic communications and public relations role in the entertainment community, Howard has an established niche in the LGBTQ community, particularly assisting celebrities and other super high-profile people during the extraordinarily stressful time when individuals "come out".
Through his stellar career, Howard has represented a wide diversity of prominent people, such as CNN's Don Lemon, Monica Lewinsky, and former Trump White House Communications Director Anthony "The Mooch" Scaramucci.
Howard also told a CLASSIC Flint story about one summer when he worked at Big John's Steak and Onions, a hippie, and two pennies. It's already a "Fish and the Flint Chronicles" Hall of Fame moment!
"Flint is not a punchline, Flint is a community," Howard said. "I'm proud to be a Flintstone."
