We’re on a mission to stop PR spam

Legacy media databases encourage their users to email large swaths of journalists based simply on their beat, which has led to an epidemic of PR spam. Muck Rack was founded on the principle of Slow PR. Our search engine encourages one-to-one communication based on what journalists are actually writing about.

Legacy media databases never enabled journalists to see what their profiles look like or gave them any other value, Muck Rack is transparent. Muck Rack allows you to customize your portfolio so other journalists can find your work and to increase the relevance of the pitches you receive.
