LOS ANGELES - April 3, 2007 - Cisco Systems, Inc. senior manager of new media and operations, Jeanette Gibson, reveals the secret behind the success of news@cisco.com, the corporation’s award winning online pressroom whose total traffic exceeds 10 million page views. Find out how Gibson transformed news@cisco.com into “the second most visited site behind the main page, cisco.com.”
The exclusive interview is featured in the latest episode of the award-winning marketing podcast "On the Record…Online," the award-winning public relations, corporate communications and business-to-business marketing podcast that features one-on-one interviews with journalists from the mainstream media and newsmakers discussing how emerging social media platforms are changing the way organizations communicate and the way people consume media and information.

In an exclusive interview released on April 4, 2006, Nielsen went on the record about the importance of online pressrooms to marketing and business communicators. The recent discussion with Gibson is the second episode focusing specifically on the role of online news rooms in corporate marketing and PR.
