Back Title

Steve Allen boasts a nearly 30 career as a public relations executive, during which time he has designed, developed and overseen hundreds of public relations campaigns to promote clients’ expertise, books, products, and images on local and national levels.

He has co-founded three different media communications companies, Anthony Mora Communications, Allen Mora Media, and Enlightened Innertainment, and is now Founder and President of Steve Allen Media: PR with a Conscience, which specializes in promoting material of an educating, stimulating and enlightening nature.

Steve also co-founded A Wing and A Prayer, a production company devoted to self-help and matters of the spirit. In this regard, he designed, promoted and produced seminars on a national level as well as developed products ancillary to these promotions and productions.

He is also an accomplished actor and director, having worked at the Steppenwolf Theatre and Goodman Theatre in Chicago and the off Broadway theatres of New York City.

Steve’s claim to fame in the world of television is his portrayal as the Father of the Ugly Baby character on The Seinfeld Show.


Ryan McCormick has created exciting and dynamic public relations campaigns for entertainment, non-profit, and corporate clients. He personally has appeared on behalf of his clients on ABC News, Fox News, CBS-TV, and NBC-TV.


Ryan has a unique relationship with the media because he is one of them at heart. A former Senior Producer for CBS, Assistant Editor for the Long Island Business News, and Production Assistant for K-Rock, he has the “chops” to know what the media is looking for…and how to best position his clients with them.

Feeling challenged by his partner (he being the one of the 600 placements in one year), Ryan helped Media Training Worldwide break the Guinness World Record for “The Most Radio Interviews within 24 Hours” (112 worldwide). The event was broadcast live on FoxNews.com. McCormick also set the Guinness World Record for the “Most Consecutive Hours Ever Worked by a Publicist.”

McCormick is a member of several key industry organizations and is a graduate of Florida State University.
