You can help advance Plans on the White House locally. Here are a few thoughts for how to begin:
Make a media rundown of the print and broadcast news sources in your city or town. Incorporate papers, magazines, radio and TV. In the event that you’d like help with this, kindly email Press.
Download the news discharges on this webpage. (They’re posted under the MEDIA area.) Add yourself as the neighborhood contact. Make certain to incorporate a telephone number and email where the media can contact you.
Fax or email the news delivery to your dissemination list. Here’s certain thoughts of who to send it to:
Every day Papers: web columnists/editors; political journalists/editors; amusement/expressions correspondents/editors.
Week by week Papers: proofreader or overseeing manager
Nearby magazines – proofreader or overseeing manager
Pamphlets – proofreader
Channels – news task proofreader, end of the week news task manager
Radio broadcast – news chief, public assistance chief
It’s OK to circle back to a call to ensure the supervisor got your fax/email and to check whether they have any inquiries. Tips for calling the media:
Present yourself and inquire as to whether they have a moment to talk. They are frequently chipping away at cutoff time. In the event that they are occupied, ask when might be a superior opportunity to get back to.
Inquire as to whether they got your fax/email and in the event that they have any inquiries concerning it.
Figure out how to help restrict the story, for example “We as of now have one plan entered from an originator in our area…”
Never inquire as to whether they will run your story. In the event that they reveal to you they will run it, it’s alright to ask when.
Try not to bug them. Simply make yourself accessible to them.
Keep us educated regarding the work you’ve done and the advancement you make.
