Companies are always looking for ways to get in front of reporters and get their stories heard, but they aren’t the only ones vying for journalists’ attention. The average reporter gets hundreds of email pitches every single day — and they have to conduct interviews and write their actual stories. Unfortunately, there just aren’t enough hours in the day.
These are important elements that companies and their leadership teams need to understand as they approach their PR programs and strategies. Moderated by ROAM Communications founder Katie Eller Murray, we will discuss what reporters are looking for, what pitches they avoid and what you can do to help your story rise above the fray.
