Media coverage of 2012 Baby Names release

Believe it or not, the most popular news release every year for the Government of Alberta is the annual review of baby names. In 2012, I researched and wrote this news release and watched with glee as the baby names bonanza began.

Here is a sampling of the media coverage still accessible online:

Answering the phone and responding to media requests that week has been a highlight of my communications career. It’s always great when good news goes viral. Thank you, Albertan babies of 2011!

Some of the baby names media is longer hosted or free online, including coverage from Harper’s Magazine (in the Harper’s Index of the May 2012 issue), Global TVCTV News, CJAD National News, iNews880, News 1130 and Yahoo News Canada.
