5 Publications Every Media, Marketing and Advertising Student Should Follow!

After talking with a few of you interested in entering the media, marketing, and advertising field, I realized none of you truly had a pulse on what’s happening in the industry. It’s not your fault (gives schools side eye). No worries, I got you.


It’s important that you are familiar with consumer and market trends as well as best practices in the industry to stay woke and relevant – This is a great way to gather different perspectives and apply them to add value to your brand and projects. It’s also a pipeline to identify internships, jobs, and that next big WIN.


I spend my mornings digesting these blogs. Having insight on the industry also keeps me polished and poised.


I’ve narrowed down my favorites below:


Advertising Age

Advertising Age is the leading global source of news, intelligence, and conversation for the marketing and media community. Ongoing coverage of strategic topics like CMO Strategy and data-driven marketing is complemented by breaking news on digital, social media and more. The 86-year-old media brand also produces industry rankings including the 200 Leading National Advertisers report, Agency A-List, and the annual Agency Report.
