JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Content marketing, lead generation and PR firm Reputation Ink has hired Steven Gallo as an account coordinator. He joined the agency in September.
Gallo’s writing and communications experience spans the media spectrum, including award-winning work for television, radio, and digital platforms. Most recently, he worked as an on-air reporter at WTOC-TV, the CBS affiliate and top-rated station in Savannah, Georgia. As a member of the station’s night-side and investigative teams, he covered a range of topics including local government, community features and breaking news across southeast Georgia.
Prior to his stint in Savannah, Gallo taught at the University of Florida as a graduate instructor in the College of Journalism and Communications while working toward his master’s degree. He also earned a bachelor’s degree in telecommunication from UF, specializing in broadcast and digital news. While an undergrad, he worked as an anchor and reporter for north-central Florida’s PBS and NPR stations.
Gallo has been honored with a national Edward R. Murrow Award, and he is a two-time award-winner in the national Hearst Broadcast News Championship. He was also recognized with the 2013 Rae O. Weimer Award, the highest honor in the UF College of Journalism and Communications.
“As part of the Reputation Ink team, I get to do what I love every day: learn, write and craft meaningful stories,” said Gallo. “Content marketing and public relations are powerful vehicles that our clients trust us with, and I’m thrilled to join an agency full of talented, creative people who are committed to achieving success with flair.”
“Steven is not only an excellent writer — which is critical to success in content marketing — he also has advanced video skills. As we work to become more adept in video marketing as an agency, his background in TV news reporting along with his technical skills will be a huge advantage for us,” said Michelle Calcote King, Reputation Ink’s principal & president.
