Certainly, there is something new happening in the NFL all the time, and someone needs to manage that information. The NFL has recently announced a new hire, as Natalie Ravitz will serve as their senior VP of communications. Ravitz comes from an impressive PR background, having served as Rupert Murdoch’s Chief of Staff at News Corp for three years.
In other NFL news, Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus has allowed the Naval Academy player Keenan Reynolds to be part of the NFL while fulfilling his service requirements in the Navy Reserves. Reynolds was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens earlier this month without knowing if he would be able to play in 2016.
As Mabus has now said, “Keenan Reynolds is one of the finest people that I know. He is just a sterling individual. If I’m an NFL coach or GM, he’s the kind of person I want in my locker room.”
“When we have guys coming out of the Naval Academy who go on and play professional sports, or go on and do other things that are high profile, it gives us a chance to show who we are and show the type of people that we attract and recruit. I can’t think of a better ambassador for the United States Navy or for the United States military than Keenan Reynolds.”
This is certainly the type of story that Natalie Ravitz will be reporting on as VP of communications and it will be interesting to see how she develops the position over time.
