Ernie Johnson, Jr.

“The experience of becoming an author, with the release of ‘Unscripted’ in April of 2017 was a lot of things for me. Exhilarating, draining, emotional, and incredibly satisfying are the first words that come to mind. I soon learned that writing the book was just a part of the process. When it came to getting the word out, and setting up a media tour, Choice Media & Communications took the reins, and I would have been lost without them. What a group of professionals! Heather Adams, Kerry Gardner and Maggie Rheney put together a tour that included ‘Good Morning America,’ ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,’ an ESPN car wash, and more national radio shows and podcasts than I can possibly count. And they were there to take care of every detail every step of the way. When it comes to getting a book in front of the eyes of potential readers, there’s only one Choice.”
— Ernie Johnson, Jr., New York Times bestselling author and Emmy Award winning host of “Inside The NBA”


“Heather’s enthusiasm is contagious. She attacks everything with a can-do attitude and is always willing to take on new challenges. Not easily discouraged, Heather always finds a way to get it done. She is also an excellent presenter – clear, concise, and compelling. She knows what it takes to get others to sit up and take notice, and she always makes a great impression. Heather knows how to get publicity for her clients. She has a ‘nose’ for a great story and knows how to sell her point of view. When she speaks, people listen! Finally, Heather has a robust network of publicity contacts in New York and Los Angeles. If she doesn’t get through on the first call, she always gets her calls returned.”
— Michael Hyatt, New York Times bestselling author, president and CEO, Michael Hyatt & Company, former chairman and CEO, Thomas Nelson Publishers


“Perhaps one of the best things I can say about Choice is that after working with them on my last book, we never even opened a discussion on switching PR firms for my latest book, ‘Of Mess and Moxie.’ It was an obvious, unanimous choice to work with the same phenomenal team that helped put ‘For the Love’ on the NY Times bestseller list for seven weeks. Heather and her team have never missed a single step, not once. They are aggressive, thorough, intuitive, and proactive. With Heather’s coaching, I’ve entered every media opportunity – TIME Magazine, The Atlantic, ‘The Today Show,’ Redbook, Publisher’s Weekly, MSN – confident and thoroughly prepared. I want no other team by my side.”
