  • Approval from Director of Marketing & Community Relations
  • Follow up for story or coverage

Information to gather:

Your department can also promote your item on television, radio and in print. We also post the information on media community calendars for you. Please provide the contact information of who may be interviewed for the story and all the particulars about the item four weeks in advance.
