About Us

With a combined 50 years of experience, Grandstand Media partners Dana Erickson, Kate Jackson, Lisa Gottheil and Meghan Helsel have overseen publicity on a wide scope of projects in the music, non-profit, event, film, literary and political arenas. Originally two companies, Erickson and Gottheil had headed up 2:30 Publicity, a New York based music PR firm established in 1996 and Jackson and Helsel had created Grandstand in early 2012 after leaving their posts at Sub Pop and Jensen Communications respectively. The two companies came together in March of 2013 in order to create a broader suite of services with staff and offices in both New York City and Los Angeles, CA.
