COMMENT

One Response to “Announcing PR Daily’s 2020 Content Marketing Awards finalists”

    Richard G Perry says:

    Hi,

    Congratulations to all! There is some serious talent out there in the marcomm space. One question: Why are there no podcasts in the spotlight, especially in the B2B category (unless I missed it)? The platform is growing steadily, a ton of money is being poured in by the big corporates. And there are fantastic indie shows out there.

    Just curious.

    Cheers,
    Richard
