I.J. Hudson,LLC - About Me

My Experience...

  • Worked in the communications business since I was 15. Began my broadcasting career in high school at a small AM radio station in Southern Illinois.
  • In college, served as student news director for WSIU R-TV, Carbondale, IL.
  • Began a 32-year run in television news at stations in Wisconsin, Ohio, New Orleans, San Diego, Chicago and Washington, DC. During my 22-year tenure at NBC4 Washington, I reported on stories ranging from politics to public health issues to technology. I became the first broadcast reporter in the Washington, D.C. area to regularly cover technology and technology issues in my Digital Edge reports.

  • When NBC4 began making big changes, I joined Garson Claxton LLC, a Bethesda law firm. I helped firm clients with message development, media training, media relations advice, crisis communications and producing videos. I served as media spokesman for clients needing to respond to media inquiries and also worked with clients, such as developers of projects subject to government approval, to develop effective media strategies for achieving long-term objectives.
