Working With The News Media: Thanking The Media
Your job in making your event stand out to the media continues even after it takes place. One way to strengthen your relationship with news reporters is through a thank-you note to express your appreciation of their support and attendance at your Communities Talk event.
- Disseminate thank-you notes no later than 1–2 weeks after your Communities Talk event.
- Include your contact information for future reference.
- Many people send thank-you emails, but also consider writing your note by hand—or at least the envelope—to help your note stand out in a pile of typed letters.
