Communications, Political Consulting, and Production Firm Takes a Fresh Approach to Media

Washington D.C. // Brooklyn, New York -- Rob O’Donnell, former Obama White House Director of Broadcast Media, today announced the launch of 38 Paces, a communications, political consulting, and production firm that takes a fresh approach to your issues, where storytelling is central. Media and politics are changing. How we communicate should change too. At 38 Paces, we take a different approach to media, tailoring our strategy to meet your vision, your voice, and your values.

With communications and strategy experience at the White House, Capitol Hill, the Justice Department, two winning Presidential campaigns, the Democratic National Committee, and private sector consulting for Fortune 500 companies and leading advocacy organizations, 38 Paces brings a depth of knowledge about the U.S. Government, the political arena, and the media landscape that would be invaluable to any company, organization, or individual.

“38 Paces will work on Campaigns and Causes that make a difference in Americans’ lives, and we plan to work alongside and advise the next generation of progressive leaders and organizations that will chart the course on a brighter, bluer future,” 38 Paces Founder Rob O’Donnell said. “We also hope to spread our wings, branching out into new sectors in technology and media, as well as more creative pursuits such as scripted and unscripted films and documentaries.”

Looking ahead, 38 Paces will launch a weekly newsletter, Starting Five, next Friday that will examine the role of honesty in the media and the national conversation, our institutions, and the real and perceived qualities of leadership in America. Each Friday, Starting Five will offer the Same Facts, but an Alternative take. 

Below is additional background about the firm, its name, our different approach to media, and the services we provide.
