Too Late Press Releases are Becoming Common

 YesterdayI don't know if this is a new trend in promotion and publicity or not but, in the past couple of months, I've received over a dozen press releases for events occurring in just a few hours. In one case, the event was a three day event that began two days earlier. I can't believe that just in the past couple of months that nobody knows their client artists are going to be on television until five minutes before showtime.

This, however, seems to be the latest fad in PR.
