Doby Communications, Inc., was created in 1998 while founder Jerry Doby was employed as a legal assistant for one of the largest civil litigation firms in the United States. While moonlighting as a talent coordinator for the documentary film, “Welcome to Death Row” by Xenon Pictures, he met former Death Row publicists, George “Dad” Price and Norman Winters and got to watch the masters at work. Both gentlemen took a liking to Jerry and assisted his transition into the PR world, providing valued advice and experience. His education, based on watching how those established publicists did things, garnered Doby Public Relations its first major client.
