Nashville Religion Communicators Council Tours New Tennessean Offices

The Nashville Chapter of the Religion Communicators Council (RCC) meets monthly to talk about topics of interest and hear from professionals in religious communications.

Nashville, TN, July 20, 2019 --( The world of news is ever-changing.

And with change, comes new surroundings: the Tennessean newspaper has packed up from their mammoth building to move to the upper floors of a high-rise on West End Avenue. On a sunny morning in mid-July, the Religion Reporter, Holly Meyer, hosted the Religion Communicators Council for a tour of the new space and answered questions.

The Religion Communicators Council (RCC) is an interfaith association of religion communicators at work in print and electronic communication, marketing and public relations.

Duane Gang, Metro News Editor, along with Meyer, spoke to the RCC about the work they do, how they manage and plan stories, and fielded questions. “Religion communicators need to be in touch with the big names in reporting, and for Nashville, the Tennessean is it,” says Julie Brinker, Communications Coordinator for the Nashville RCC and Director of Community Affairs for the Church of Scientology Nashville, “We’re so happy they opened their doors to RCC so we can see what happens right in one of the hottest news rooms in the city.”

The RCC has members from every faith group and walk of life including Baha’is, Christians, Jews, Muslims, Scientologists, Sikhs, Hindus and more. The RCC, founded in 1929, is an association of communications professionals who work for and with a diverse group of faith-based organizations in the areas of communications, public relations, advertising and development.

The RCC provides opportunities for communicators to learn from each other. Together, RCC members promote excellence in the communication of faith and values in the public arena. For more information about the Religion Communicators Council, visit
