BBC Radio presenter Paul 'Goffy' Gough is one of the region's best-known broadcasters, but these days he also runs his own Marketing and Public Relations company.
With years of experience, Goffy Media help individuals and businesses to increase their profile, improve media image and help communicate to their target market, not just here in the UK, but now also working extensively for clients in Spain and Australia.
Paul Gough became one of the most popular personalities in the region with
his "Goffy in the Morning" show on the region's biggest radio stations - Century Radio,
Metro Radio and TFM. These days he's a regular voice on BBC Tees - you
can hear his Saturday Lunchtime Show live from 12 - 2pm, or to hear previous shows
But long before appearing on the Radio, Goffy was heavily involved in PR and Marketing with his own successful company. You can read about his early days here
While presenting a daily radio show Paul's biggest achievement was his skill in marketing himself, effectively creating the "Goffy" brand. And these days Goffy and his team are here to offer that same expertise to help maximise publicity for your career or organisation ! No other Company can offer this personality-led service, something totally unique in the region.
As well as personally helping to plan and organise your event or campaign, Paul will often also provide his services as the front man on the day, whether compering a show, or introducing a big-name celebrity.
Whether you're a large international company or a small business, we can provide a service that will suit your budget.
While presenting his radio shows, Paul had the pleasure of interviewing and working alongside some of the biggest names in showbiz and sport - including Ant and Dec, Alan Shearer, Simon Cowell, Lionel Richie and the incomparable Paul "Gazza" Gascoigne. These celebrities came to the studios as strangers and left as friends, which is a testament to Goffy's warm and professional approach to the Media, Public Relations and Marketing business.
For example, the relationship Goffy built up with Gazza over the years lead to Paul taking him on a media tour to promote his best-selling biographies, and more recently he arranged a front-page world-exclusive interview with him for the Sunday Mirror while he was at an Arizona rehab clinic. Goffy is pictured on the left with Sunday Mirror news boss Mike Hamilton, with their front-page exclusive. As a result, Gazza's thank you message to his fans was picked up by TV & Radio worldwide. This demonstrates not only the kind of trusting relationship Goffy has built up with celebrities, but also his vast media connections.
This also shows how Goffy Media have built up extensive Media contacts over the years, not just in the North East, but with major national newspapers such as The Sun and Daily Mirror, as well as radio and television.
We have also recently worked with such names as Leigh Francis, Katie Price, Ant & Dec, Mike Tyson, Gordon Ramsay, Tim Healy, Denise Welch, Kelly Brook, David Gest, The Hairy Bikers, Jeff Stelling, Chris Kamara, Paul Merson, Ricky Hatton, and Peter Andre. (see our Video section) And those same celebrities that Goffy has been involved with over the years are now valuable business contacts that could enhance your event or company's product launch.
But Goffy doesn't only work with Celebrities - perhaps you have a story to tell that you'd like to see in the press? Even the national newspapers are short of journalists these days, and so are crying out for agencies like Goffy Media to write stories and provide pictures. Perhaps you have expert knowledge and would like to write a regular newspaper column or appear on Radio or TV?Find out more by going to our Sell a Story page here.
Or maybe you know an individual who deserves recognition? Again, we can help - Goffy was the driving force behind veteran football scout Eric Powell being awarded an M.B.E. by her Majesty The Queen at Buckingham Palace in January 2015. We arranged lots of press publicity and organised a host of top football celebrities to endorse Eric's achievements, including Alan Shearer, Peter Reid, John McGovern, and Kevin Keegan. Read more details about this campaign here.
As well as working for individuals, Goffy also helps promote top Companies or Brands. Many charities have also seen the benefit in getting Goffy Media involved. Over the years Paul has personally helped raise well over a million pounds for worthy causes.
Goffy recently helped promote a Tesco sponsored campaign for Diabetes UK. This included using his high-profile contacts to gain maximum exposure on TV, Radio & Media for Tesco. Pictured left is actor and TV presenter Bradley Walsh backing the nationwide campaign. TV host Vernon Kay, the cast of ITV's Benidorm series, and a host of other familiar faces also joined the cause to raise thousand for the charity, culminating in a sell-out Celebrity Dinner and Auction, arranged by Goffy Media.
We were asked to help promote a Charity CD recorded by comedian Roy 'Chubby' Brown, who wrote a touching song about the children's hospice Zoe's Place. We arranged distribution and online download of the song, enlisted numerous celebrities to help promote the fund-raising project, and then arranged a huge amount of publicity on Radio, Television and Press, plus Social Media. This demonstrates how we can utilize our wide range of skills and contacts in a complex multi-faceted project like this. Details here
