When Baltimore resident Avi Mandel was kicked off a Southwest Airlines flight for eating a Twizzler with his mask down, Atkinson helped his story go viral. Atkinson quickly pitched the story to a producer at WJZ-13, the local CBS affiliate, and it was soon syndicated across the country by major networks, including CBS, ABC, FOX, CNN and the New York Post. Tens of thousands of people shared and commented on the story helping to quickly go viral.
Atkinson has effective working relationships with Baltimore reporters, editors, producers and influencers and leverages these relationships to promote clients’ stories locally and nationally.
