According to Pates, "Rubin Public Relations of Narberth, Pennsylvania is handling the hockey press conference at the Penrose House today. The public relations firm is headed by Larry Rubin."
Armed with that information, LetsGoDU's crack research staff went one step further and did a background check on the PR firm and its founder.
Rubin was Vice President of Public Relations at the Spectrum Arena in Philadelphia. He handled the public relations efforts of concerts, sports and national events taking place at the 20,000-seat arena. He served as PR Director for the Philadelphia Flyers. As VP, Corporate Communications for Spectacor Management Group, he directed the public relations activities for some 20 arenas, convention centers, stadiums and theaters in the United States and Europe.”
The Flyers and the former Spectrum arena are both owned by Comcast-Spectacor, which also owns NBC and Versus (soon to be NBC Sports Network).
