Rick and Marilyn Rea Beyer bring a rich array of communications experiences to GOTTA' GET THE WORD OUT!

Rick is a bestselling author and award winning filmmaker who learned the hard way how to promote his own projects. He has made documentaries for PBS, The History Channel, A&E, National Geographic and others. His most recent documentary, The Ghost Army (funded in part by a successful Kickstarter campaign) was hailed as "mesmerizing" by the San Francisco Chronicle and "entrancing" by TV Guide. He is also the author of the popular Greatest Stories Never Told series of history books. A former journalist and advertising creative director, he has been interviewed by CBS News, MSBC, CNN, The Discovery Channel, NPR and Fox News.

Marilyn Rea Beyer is the Director of Public Relations at the Perkins School for the Blind in Watertown, MA, where her efforts over the last six years have substantially increased the school's visibility in the local and national media. She also hosts a daily radio show on WUMB Radio, the only all-folk music radio station in the U.S. Prior to working at Perkins, she directed PR for WUMB and the Boston Folk Festival. In addition, Marilyn is a poet who frequently performs at local spoken-word events.  She has a M.A. from Northwestern University School of Communications.
