As late as the 1960's, PR was seen as an expensive luxury, available only to a few of the largest corporations. 'Public Image' was something unknown to the average business planner, and 'press coverage' referred to paid advertisements.
Today, few companies are launched without an attempt to generate some media coverage and the scope of focus of PR is changing as it expands from promoting the reputations of commercial and industrial concerns into areas of greater social involvement.
