Former Media Executive and PR Professional Opens New Communications Firm

Grand Rapids, Mich. (Dec. 3, 2020) – Long-time media and public relations professional, Tim Dye, announced today the opening of Dye Communications, LLC, a PR and strategic communications firm.

“I am excited to start this new endeavor,” said Dye. “I look forward to bringing my hands-on, personalized style of service to companies, associations, nonprofits and individuals, who need communications support.”

The new firm will offer a range of internal and external communications services including media relations, media coaching, issue management, crisis communications, digital media strategies, community relations and business publication support. Dye Communications has already established strategic partnerships with several other firms including Well Design Studio in Grand Rapids, Thiessen & Co. of Rockford and Rick Chapla Consulting of Allendale, to provide an even broader range of strategic counsel and messaging services to clients when needed.

“The current communications matrix for most organizations demands that they pay attention to multiple media platforms simultaneously, and that they be ready to share their message across those platforms at any time of the day or night,” said Dye. “My partners and I have worked in that nonstop environment for many years and we know precisely how to deliver meaningful counsel and messaging to help our clients achieve their communications goals.”

Dye is an award-winning journalist and public relations specialist who spent almost 30 years in television news. He held management positions at WOOD-TV in Grand Rapids, WNEM-TV in Saginaw, WXMI-TV/FOX17 in Grand Rapids – where he launched the news operation in 1999 – and Detroit’s legendary WXYZ-TV. Most recently Dye worked as an executive for a statewide strategic communications firm where he provided PR counsel and services to clients in municipal government, healthcare, public transportation, K-12 and college education, public utilities, and philanthropic organizations.

During the pandemic, the firm will operate virtually. A permanent office space will be identified at a later date. For more information about the company or to inquire about services offered by the firm, log onto
