The news came following the announcement that Rita Sanders, FinderBinder's longtime owner and president of Rita Sanders Advertising and Public Relations Agency, retired at the end of September. HMA will now be responsible for the production and sales of this highly regarded statewide media directory.
"The FinderBinder is widely recognized in Arizona as the premiere resource for media contact information. Rita has produced the directory since 1978 and we look forward to the opportunity to make this long-standing annual publication as up-to-date and accessible as possible," said Abbie S. Fink, vice president/general manager of HMA Public Relations.
Fink expects the first edition under HMA's ownership to be available by the end of 2010. The directory will be available in both digital and hard-copy formats. Current subscribers will be receiving renewal information in the next 45 days.
"The web address will remain the same, www.finderbinderaz.com. We are making some structural changes to the site and hope to launch the new site by early December," Fink said.
The new phone number is (602) 955-1279.
FinderBinderT is Arizona's #1 source for news media contacts. For nearly 30 years, FinderBinderT has become a media information hub for professionals in journalism, public relations, marketing, advertising, and legislation.
