Patrick Dix, Vice President, Public Relations

Hired as a senior public relations manager, Patrick brought 20 years of public relations and writing experience to SHAZAM. Prior to joining SHAZAM, he spent the majority of his career as an anchor of the #1 morning newscast on WHO-HD in Des Moines. During his tenure at the station, he covered five Iowa Caucus cycles, city and county government and countless stories about Iowa weather including two major floods.

Mr. Dix has been recognized for outstanding reporting with awards from The Society of Professional Journalists, The William Randolph Hearst Foundation and the Midwest Broadcast News Association. In 2012, he began developing and teaching media training courses. The classes focused on how news rooms work, how to get stories on air and how to deal with media in a crisis situation.

As PR manager at SHAZAM, he offers similar services to community financial institutions. Patrick holds a degree in journalism from the University of Missouri.
