Rawlings-Blake featured nationally on TV throughout June

In recent weeks, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has faced tough questions from local media about her close friendship with a prominent Baltimore lobbyist. But, at the same time, the mayor's PR team has raised Rawlings-Blake's national exposure through a round of high-profile media appearances.

In the past two weeks, Rawlings-Blake has appeared on CNN (to discuss obesity), MSNBC (to discuss Baltimore's "Vacants to Values" program), MSNBC (to discuss illegal guns) and in Bloomberg's Businessweek (to query former U.S. President Bill Clinton on crumbling infrastructure).

It's the most national media exposure the mayor has received in a short period of time since July of last year.
