D.C. PR legend Charlie Brotman celebrates his 95th birthday

by | Jan 1, 2023

Charlie Brotman celebrated his 95th birthday with about 45 friends and family – including former Washington Redskins Rick “Doc” Walker, shown above, and Dexter Manley, below; Chris Gordon, former TV news anchor and reporter in D.C.; and others in the communications community, including Cary Hatch, Managing Director, Hart MDB+, shown above with Brotman.

Brotman had a lengthy and successful career in communications. According to Wikipedia: “In the 1960s, Brotman started his own public relations firm, Brotman|Winter|Fried, specializing in sports promotions. (His firm was acquired by Sage Communications in 2011.) He continued to announce on Opening Day for the Senators each year until the team moved to Texas following the 1971 season. When the Washington Nationals relocated to the city in 2005, Brotman returned to his Opening Day duties.

“Brotman joined LINK Strategic Partners, a strategic communications and stakeholder engagement firm based in Washington, D.C., as a senior advisor in 2015. He advises the firm on its hyperlocal engagement work in DC and around the country.

“Brotman has been inducted into 11 different Halls of Fame during his more than 50 years in public relations and announcing, including the Washington Hall of Fame, the Jewish Sports Hall of Fame, Jock’s Hall of Fame, the Public Relations Society of America Hall of Fame, the Advertising Club of Washington Hall of Fame, the Greater Washington Fastpitch Softball Hall of Fame. His most recent induction took place in 2014 at the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts for the Washington Tennis and Education Foundation Hall of Fame.”
