We Are Porch Light

Porch Light Public Relations is a full-service boutique communications firm based in Indianapolis. Founded in 2013 by Myranda Annakin and Jennifer Chan, the firm was conceived after a menagerie of shared contacts and small worlds led us to each other and we realized our complementary professional talents and personal aspirations were the perfect recipe for what the market needed.

At Porch Light, we offer personalized service complemented by numerous years of experience. Myranda managed the day-to-day newsgathering and operations of a local television station; Jennifer oversaw accounts of lifestyle brands both in-house and at PR agencies in San Francisco and Chicago.

Each potential client has unique needs and our goal is to create messages and strategic plans in order to deliver measurable goals for our clients to connect with their audiences.

We specialize in Indianapolis media relations, national public relations campaigns, marketing and social media consulting, and much more!

Myranda Annakin


Myranda is Porch Light’s media relations guru. She spent 13 years at WXIN-TV (Indy’s Fox affiliate) where she managed the day-to-day editorial operations in the newsroom, and coordinated coverage for big events like the Super Bowl and Indianapolis 500.
She has been on the receiving end of thousands of story pitches and knows tricks-of-the-trade to get news organizations to cover your story or event.

Outside of work you can catch Myranda and her husband with their three kids Jackson, Beau and Harper. They are a sports-oriented family with a love for IU basketball, Colts and Pacers. She is also involved with the Spring Mill Elementary PTO, and volunteers for the Indy Family Foundation and her church.

Myranda’s guilty pleasures include any food with Reese’s Cups as an ingredient, shopping for items that cost $20 but look expensive, and any show on BRAVO.

Jennifer Chan


Jen is Porch Light’s public relations pro. After graduating from Syracuse University with a degree in Magazine Journalism, she worked at public relations firms in New York, San Francisco, Chicago and finally back here in the Hoosier state. Her former clients include: The Peninsula Chicago, Kenneth Cole, American Eagle Outfitters, Jamba Juice, Sprint PCS and IBM.

Jen and her husband raise their three young boys Lucas, Alden and Bennett (also known as the wild coyotes) on the north side of Indy. You’ll often catch her cheering on the sidelines at her boys’ football games, or volunteering at Spring Mill Elementary.

In the rare moments she has alone, Jen likes to relax by cooking with a glass of wine in hand, or by watching Parts Unknown or a good cooking show. She also loves to shop at the Fresh Market.
