Magnolia Marketing Communications, a Vancouver-based boutique public relations and integrated marketing communications agency, today announced the addition of former CTV BC news anchor/reporter, Jina You, to its growing team as Communications Director.

Jina joins Magnolia with a breadth of industry experience in public relations, crisis communications and broadcasting. Her addition to the team is a key element to Magnolia's hard-hitting strategy of achieving results that are aligned with its clients' corporate goals and sales initiatives.

Global Broadcasting, Communications Leadership Experience

Prior to joining Magnolia, Jina was a reporter and TV anchor for CTV News/Bell Media. There she received recognition for her reporting on a variety of issues including politics, business, technology and the legal system, and in 2008 Jina received the Jack Webster Award for Excellence in Legal Reporting for her coverage of the verdict in the trial of Robert Pickton, Canada's most notorious serial killer. The CTV News BC weekend late-night broadcast, for which she was an anchor, was consistently one of the station's top-rated news programs.

Adding to her experience is Jina's international work with significant media providers in Asia. Not only has she excelled in journalism but she has also served as a contract consultant and media trainer on various projects for leading edge companies helping them achieve success in both their content development and multimedia strategies. She now brings this corporate expertise with her on a full-time basis to Magnolia.

Adding Cohesion and "Front Line" Industry Experience to Team Magnolia

"I have first-hand experience with both media and corporate customers, and I recognize the value of a boutique firm like Magnolia that is able to provide companies 'big agency' results, while maintaining a high touch and personal client-customer collaboration," said Jina You, communications director for Magnolia Marketing Communications. "I am excited to join Magnolia's fast-paced, challenging environment in a full-time capacity, and look forward to offering my direct field experience to clients."

"Over the past twelve months, Magnolia has experienced tremendous growth. To continue supporting the increasing demand for our services, we are committed to adding more bench strength and experience that will deliver the highest quality services in PR, corporate message and video services," said Magnolia Communications principal, Phoebe Yong. "Jina and I have known each other for many years, and I'm thrilled to now have her join the team officially as the company's trained journalist who can give our portfolio of work the true field test."
