teamworks is proud of the work we do each year to help communicate our clients’ stories to the audiences that matter to them.


Here are our top ten highlights of effective storytelling in 2021. 


April 12 – White Castle Anniversary on “The List TV”  When Phoenix-based syndicated “The List TV” was eager to do a national story about the 100th anniversary of White Castle, they turned to teamworks knowing we had managed the PR for the iconic brand when they opened the first Castle in Phoenix in 2019.

This fun story ran in 43 markets.

Nov. 13 – East Valley Veterans Parade   Returning to its traditional parade format, and the only parade held in the East Valley this year, the East Valley Veterans Parade was featured on ABC15, Arizona Family and FOX, as well as the front page of the Arizona Republic the next day. It also was the focus of a special section of media partner East Valley Tribunea.


June 2 – Dr. Nachi Patel in Prevention  With a circulation of 2.8 million, we were excited to place our interventional cardiologist client in Prevention magazine and discussing circulation. We also placed him on ABC15 and in online media outlets PopSugar and Medical News Today.

Sept 11 – 9/11 Day on ABC15 and KSDK   teamworks was proud to partner with 9/11 Day to manage the planning, execution and publicity for large-scale volunteer meal-packing events in nine cities across the country. We also served as the local event planners in two of these markets — Phoenix and St. Louis. Our local market   coverage included a feature on ABC15 in Phoenix and KSDK NBC in St. Louis.

April 6 – Waste Not on Arizona Gives Day   Arizona’s largest donation day, Arizona Gives Day, was a perfect opportunity for client Waste Not to tell their story to FOX 10 Phoenix and talk about how they use donations to move prepared food from those that have it to those that need it. Waste Not was also included in an Arizona Gives Day article in Scottsdale Progress. 

Nov. 9 – Tracy Dempsey Originals on FOX  It’s always a fun time when Cory McCloskey of FOX’s Arizona Morning comes for a visit, and that was certainly the case when he visited Tracy Dempsey Originals/ODV Wines to talk about holiday gift giving and shopping local.

Sept. 2 – One Community Diversity Expo  When client One Community hosted a Diversity Career Expo with thousands of job openings, we arranged a variety of coverage, including a TV hit on Arizona Family with one of the even sponsors, Fry’s Foods.
