Mark Bernheimer
Founder & Principal, MediaWorks Resource Group

Mark Bernheimer is the founder and principal of MediaWorks Resource Group. For nearly two decades, he has been empowering MediaWorks’ clients with the skills and confidence to handle all manner of media interactions.

Bernheimer calls upon 16 years of journalism experience as the bedrock of his training approach. He spent the latter part of his reporting career as a national correspondent for CNN, assigned to the Los Angeles Bureau.

Reporting for CNN, Bernheimer covered some of the biggest news events of our time, including the Monica Lewinsky scandal, and the subsequent impeachment of President Bill Clinton, the Jon Benet Ramsey murder investigation, the Columbine school massacre, and the Oklahoma City bombing trials of Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols. Bernheimer was one of only a handful of reporters inside the courtroom when O.J. Simpson took the stand during his wrongful death civil trial. And during the late nineties, Bernheimer weathered five hurricanes on live national television.

Beyond CNN, Bernheimer was a reporter for KCAL Channel 9 in Los Angeles, a freelance contributor to the Orange County Register, and an anchor at the Orange County News Channel. As a freelance correspondent for the National Geographic Channel, he introduced viewers to an ancient ocean of fossils unearthed by the Los Angeles subway construction project.

Bernheimer’s interview subjects included a former U.S. Secretary of State, two California governors, and variousicons of the entertainment world.

Fresh from those experiences, Bernheimer founded MediaWorks with a mission of teaching clients to anticipate media behavior and communicate their messages as clearly and effectively as possible.

Bernheimer is frequently called upon as a keynote speaker for public relations associations and other professional groups.  He has written for numerous public relations publications including PR Tactics and The Public Relations Strategist.

Born in New York City and raised in Southern California, he is a graduate of the University of Oregon.
