New York Times article.
We are gearing up for the biggest rematch of the year! Anderson Silva vs Chris Weidman in UFC 168! And it’s all going down at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas during New Years Eve weekend!
Of course the last fight lead to a very upset LAPR staff as Silva was knocked out by Weidman, but there’s no stopping Silva this time around!
Needless to say, this is the big one people! And we at LAPR/Team Silva are ready for it! Are you??
Lynch Archer PR had an amazing and busy month… but what’s new?!
We celebrated our CEO’s birthday, Cheryl Lynch, in true LAPR style of course! We decorated her office and surprised her in the morning! She also received very special gifts from her clients including a bottle of Don Perignon from Beau Smart and gorgeous bouquets from the boys of Emblem 3, Matt & Gloria Barnes and more! A few of the JLo Dancers even came by and surprised her with all kinds of sweets from cupcakes to chocolates! Guess that’s what happens when you take such good care of your clients!
We also had a great time with Troy Lee Designs and Jeremy McGrath at the Honda Grom Prix! Check out some of the sweet merch from the event and more at troyleedesigns.com!
We also spent September helping Gloria Govan-Barnes make some big moves… hint hint:
LAPR moved into hyper gear with Jennifer Lopez‘s dancers and choreographer Beau Casper Smart to help them launch their new series on NUVOtv, A Step Away! The docu-series followed JLo and her dancers on her first ever world tour and was a massive hit for her new channel! Here’s a behind the scenes look at one of many interviews in Sept leading up to the Oct 3rd premiere date with Beau Smart and Jimmy RO Smith!
Lynch Archer PR helped NUVOtv shoot the new season of their hit comedy show, Stand Up & Deliver! Comedians from Chelsea Lately to Comedy Central and more taped their best stand up for the show!
September also saw some great premieres including HBO’s Boardwalk Empire which Los Angeles Clippers’ Matt Barnes attended as well as other LAPR clients!
CEO Cheryl Lynch and others in the office also had a blast celebrating Los Angeles Dodgers’ Matt Kemp‘s birthday in Sept!
As huge music fans, LAPR was also stoaked to have Beau Casper Smart attend Frankie J‘s exclusive album listening part at Lure nightclub in Hollywood! What a wonderful night with wonderful people… and amazing sounds!
LAPR also helped choreographer Beau Casper Smart and JLo Dancer Jimmy RO Smith hit up HLN’s Showbiz Tonight to promote their series on NUVOtv, A Step Away! Check out the backstage pic! It was a blast to have our clients on the show and a huge success!
We also helped the JLo Dancers set up a one-of-a-kind live chat with their fans prior to their show’s premiere with Beau Casper Smart, Jimmy RO Smith, and George Jones Jr! It was hosted by Extra TV and Stuart Brazell! Tons of fans chimed in with all of their questions for our clients about touring with JLo, their new show and so much more!
And we ended September on an amazing note at the 2013 ALMA Awards with lots of LAPR clients in attendance! It was a long night of work but clients in attendance not only walked the red carpet and had amazing interviews but also scored amazing seats for the entire award show and exclusive after party access! It was a night to remember!
We had another busy month to say the least, with this just being a few of the highlights, but it’s always a mixture of work & play with such a great array of clients we are blessed with!
The Lynch Archer PR team has had another busy week. The team in New York was thrilled to see J.Lo give a speech during the NuvoTV network TV upfront. You can watch a part of that here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wNwes2bqwE
Client Bikini Brigade LA has been keeping busy, recently sending a few models to the select Maxim Hot 100 Party in Hollywood.
Friend to the Bikini Brigade, Las Vegas VIP host Chris Merritt was in town this week. A high-fashion model in the making…? Chris walked a few red carpets with Lynch Archer PR and was photographed for multiple media outlets.
The Hangover Part III premiered in Westwood, CA this week, and LAPR was there with client Matt Barnes to manage the red carpet press. Chris Merrit, Gloria Govan, and Deandre Jordan were also there to get a few photos and watch the new comedy starring Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper, Justin Bartha, and Ed Helms.
Matt Barnes and Gloria Govan also hit up the premiere of Fast and the Furious 6. The premiere was held up at Universal Citywalk.
In a unique spin, there was a concert before the premiere by Wiz Khalifa!
Matt and Gloria brought along some family and friends and had a great night out.
Matt also got a chance to stop by the Jimmy Kimmel Live studio in Hollywood to take part in a skit which will air at a later date. We can’t wait to see it! Jimmy has become one of the late night greats since he started on The Man Show so many years ago.
Lynch Archer also spent a little quality time in studio with Dr Drew and the Loveline crew.
Matt Barnes appeared on the show last night with Dr. Drew and Mike to talk about things like keeping things fresh when you’re in a relationship.
Matt is set to appear tomorrow at 8:30am ET on NBC Sports Radio to talk all things basketball. He will be a free agent this summer after his run with the LA Clippers. You can listen in here! http://nbcsportsradio.com/
Happy Memorial Day from Lynch Archer PR!
The weather here in LA has been great, and this week we even got a little sunburn!
Last weekend, Lynch Archer was honored to participate in 2 great charitable events. The first was Walk to Africa.
There was a great turnout of participants of all ages and races at the walk which started at a park in Santa Monica.
There were fun games for the kids and many sponsors donated great products for the participants. The Walk to Africa raises awareness of the need for medical missions to Africa and provides funds for Lighthouse Medical Missions. You can learn more about them here: http://walktoafrica.dojiggy.com/ng/index.cfm/a6326d/regPages/pages/?p=101296
The second event for LAPR was the WME Tennis Tournament.
The annual event raises funds for the Bogart Pediatric Cancer Research Center. You can learn more about the foundation, which helps children with cancer, here: http://bogartfoundation.org/
LAPR was happy to ensure both healthy events were provided with RedBull energy drinks and Quest Nutrition protein bars. Thanks, RedBull and Quest!
Than you to Asics, Riviera Country Club, and Coco Libre as well!
Both events were a joy to be a part of.
If you would like to be a part of the Walk to Africa or WME Tennis Tournament next year, please let us know! They support great causes.
The Lynch Archer PR offices have seen non-stop action since the last blog post.
After the great Mayweather fight in Las Vegas, client Bikini Brigade LA headed back home. The ladies worked the fight as ring girls, modeled and promoted products at the Supercross finals, and got to attend hot new club Hakkasan where Calvin Harris and Tiesto performed. They even ran in to Neil Patrick Harris!
At the supercross finals, client Jeremy McGrath was able to reveal the winner of his $20,000 scholarship. It was Alex Northcutt, who will use the money to further his education and pursue his dreams of working within the motorcycle/ motocross industry. Congrats, Alex!
The LAPR social media and events team treated themselves to a night out to celebrate the anniversary of the London Hotel in WeHo. It was a great event with some old friends and some new opportunities.
Lynch Archer then celebrated Mother’s Day! A great reminder to thank all our clients, clients’ wives, and our own moms for always being there for support.
LAPR was delighted to be invited back to ESPN’s Sports Nation with client Matt Barnes. He was even in-studio for their surprise Taco Tuesday skit, where Matt got to chow down on a taco during the commercial break.
Though Matt suffered a great loss already in this playoff season, he was able to make an impressive 30 points in his last game. He has spent the last few weeks opening up to the media about his future as an NBA player and the future of the LA Clippers team. He will be a free agent this summer, but has made it known that he and his family love LA. Being a UCLA grad, Barnes has strong roots in the area. For a taste of his media talks, check out one interview with ESPN here: http://espn.go.com/espnradio/play?id=9275303
CEO Cheryl was in NYC for the TV upfronts. She and the LAPR team will attend several meetings with potential clients along with helming some network duties.
The WME Tennis Classic is finally just around the corner! The annual event lets us catch up with old friends from the Bogart Pediatric Cancer Research Center. LAPR loves to do charitable events with them, as theirs is a great cause that helps children with cancer. The tennis classic will feature many celebrities who will come out for a day of doubles tennis in the sun.
Other than TV pitching in NYC and Hollywood events in LA, the team has their sights set on plenty more to keep them busy in the next few weeks including Cannes Film Festival, Billboard Music Awards, ESPYs, the Fast and the Furious premiere, The Hangover premiere, and much more!
Please come back soon for more updates!
The WME Tennis Classic is happening May 19th…meaning planning and publicity is in full swing!
In case you missed our last post:
This tennis tournament is a charity befitting the Bogart Pediatric Cancer Research Program, hosted by the world famous William Morris Endeavor (WME) and features celebrity and tennis pros alike.
Lynch Archer PR had our monthly meeting today with all the partners and we are getting even more excited for this awesome event as more players, celebrities, and sponsors come in!
