Working with the News Media.
Ordovensky, Pat; Marx, Gary
This booklet provides advice on how schools can forge useful working relationships with the news media. Nineteen ground rules for working with print or broadcast media are outlined. The most important rule for all occasions is to make sure that your information is true. Strategies are described for using various tools of the trade, such as the phone call, news release, media advisory, fact sheet, news conference, individual briefings, the op-ed piece, editorial board visits, letters to the editor, public service announcements, and appearances on radio and television. Sidebars present tips for TV interviews, protocol in the electronic age, media kits, media access to the school, rapport with reporters, credibility do's and don'ts, and effective wording of media responses. Appendices contain definitions of media jargon and samples of a news release, media advisory, and fact sheet. (LMI)
