Our Team
ActionMedia was founded in 1994 by Michael Goldberg and Dick Brooks, who brought three decades of journalism and broadcast management experience and insights. They had been working behind the scenes to help the Sokaogon Chippewa Community fight a sulfide mine proposed by Exxon Minerals. In that battle they saw firsthand that advocates, armed with solid facts, great ideas, and the best of intentions, were unable to overcome powerful opposition and communicate effectively outside small circles of like-minded experts and supporters -- until they recognized the power of the media they have the most control over: their own voices. The rights to that enormous mineral deposit are now held by the neighboring Potawatomi tribe, and it’s not likely to be dug up any time soon.

We’ve learned a lot doing this work, including this: people have a lot more power than they use, and when they use it, giants fall.
