Brielle Colby to bolster Javelin’s acclaimed and expanding PR team

ALEXANDRIA, VA — Javelin, the Washington area’s fastest growing communications, literary, and creative agency, today announced the addition of Brielle Colby to its Public Relations team.

Brielle joins Javelin from Fox News Channel, where she started as an intern nearly nine years ago to become a production assistant on Fox News and the Fox Business Network. Most recently, she worked directly under the Vice President of News Bill Sammon and Fox News Sunday’s host Chris Wallace. She played an integral role in special event coverage such as the 2014 midterm elections and the 2016 GOP primary debate in Cleveland. She holds a degree in Journalism and minor in Political Science from Penn State University. Previously she served in the Peace Corps for two years in Peru. 

“Telling our clients’ stories with imagination and tenacity is a hallmark of how we approach public relations, and that’s why Brielle is a stellar addition to Javelin,” said Founding Partner and President Keith Urbahn.  

 “I am thrilled to be joining Javelin. Their unconventional approach to PR, literary and digital projects has established their reputation as one of the most creative places in Washington, and I look forward to helping their team extend their influence and reach even further” said Brielle Colby. 

Colby joins a PR team led by Vice President Rachael Dean that includes former presidential campaign officials, experienced Capitol Hill veterans, and PR professionals with decades of experience in messaging, booking, and crisis management. 

Javelin was founded in 2012 by partners Keith Urbahn and Matt Latimer. Since then, it has become known as one of Washington’s most aggressive and successful agencies — lauded by Washingtonian magazine as “agents of change.”   Its client roster includes presidential candidates, Emmy-award winning journalists, major nonprofits, acclaimed historians, and talented writers from publications ranging from The Atlantic to The Weekly Standard.
