Lee Moss Media Acquires HispanicPR.com and BlackEntrepreneurs.com

Lee Moss Media Acquires HispanicPR.com and BlackEntrepreneurs.com
Posted By: Jehan Bunch on February 22, 2010

-- Also Secures Advertising Deals With Tide and U.S. Census Bureau --

Columbus, OH - Lee Moss Media, an award-winning African American marketing, public relations, and diversity recruiting firm, has hit the ground running in 2010. The 10-year old company has recently acquired HispanicPR.com, with plans late this year to launch a press release distribution service to the Hispanic media. They already own BlackPR.com - the largest press release distribution service to the Black media. They've also acquired BlackEntrepreneurs.com, with plans to launch an online community for African American entrepreneurs and business owners.

Despite a recent slump in the online advertising industry, the firm was able to secure several advertising contracts for their flagship web site - HBCUconnect.com. Procter & Gamble has come onboard to promote their Tide brand, with an ad campaign that features tennis star Venus Williams. Secondly, the U.S.



Census Bureau has signed on to promote their initiative to have more African Americans complete and mail in their 2010 Census forms.

Co-founders Dante Lee and William Moss are both very optimistic about the 2010. "Last year was slow for everybody," Lee comments. "But 2010 is expected to be the year of recovery for the economy, and so far seems very promising for the online advertising industry."
