Cindi Creager, GLAAD's Former National News Director, Launches CreagerCole Communications


This is a debugging block

Media veteran Cindi Creager and her partner Rainie Cole launched CreagerCole Communications, a new company specializing in media training, public speaking preparation and media relations. Creager previously served as GLAAD’s National News Director, where she brought thirteen years of experience as a local news director, reporter and anchor in Alaska and network television field producer / cinematographer in New York, to her work elevating the voices of LGBT people around the nation.

While at GLAAD, Creager helped bring stories of advocates and allies to wider media attention and forward the movement toward equality. Stories like that of Elke Kennedy, whose 20-year-old gay son Sean was brutally murdered in Greenville, South Carolina, or Janice Langbehn, who was turned away at a Miami hospital while her partner Lisa Pond lay dying, contributed to impactful changes in policies for LGBT people such as federal hate crimes legislation and hospital visitation for lesbian and gay couples.

After leaving GLAAD, Creager joined New York’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center, working as Director of Communications & Marketing and overseeing external communications initiatives while leading the first two phases of a comprehensive re-branding effort. She left the Center in July 2012 to begin her own firm.

“Cindi Creager has a phenomenal track record in the national media arena,” said GLAAD President Herndon Graddick. “Her commitment to helping countless LGBT people thrive in the media spotlight has helped shape the national dialogue about LGBT people. GLAAD looks forward to potential collaborations with CreagerCole Communications in the future.”
