Randy Ray
Publicist, Strategist and Writer

Randy Ray is a publicist with more than 30 years of experience in the writing business. His specialty is helping businesses, authors, publishers, associations and charities secure interviews, feature stories, and reviews in some of the most important broadcast and print media in Canada, including CBC Radio, The Globe & Mail, The Toronto Star, CTV News and Global Television.

Unlike most publicists, Randy – an experienced Canadian journalist, freelance writer and best-selling author – has worked on both sides of the fence. As a reporter for 13 years with The London Free Press, he has pitched hundreds of story ideas and developed a keen sense for news and feature ideas that are worthy of coverage.

As a result, Randy knows better than most what it takes to grab the attention of the editors, book reviewers and TV and radio producers across Canada who will give a project publicity. And thanks to his extensive and up-to-date list of media contacts, he knows which editors and producers to approach.

Randy operates his own publicity business (www.randyray.ca) and is also a regular contributor to The Globe & Mail, Ottawa Citizen, CHILL Magazine, Forever Young Newspaper and Capital Parent Newspapers. He has co-written nine books about Canada (www.triviaguys.com) and is publicity director for Ottawa Independent Writers, which represents more than 160 Ottawa-area authors, freelance writers, editors and illustrators.

Randy and his wife Janis have three sons. Randy enjoys travel, home renovations, playing the drums and visiting a cottage he co-owns near Peterborough, Ontario.
