PR Q&A | How do you tie current events into your pitch for maximum relevance and impact?

Well, it’s really quite simple actually! One of the things that I think people should make a practice of — if you’re trying to really serve the media, get with the media, be covered by the media — is to do something very simple at breakfast: Just turn on the news. I can’t tell you how many people always tell me, “I just don’t watch the news.” But, the thing that really impresses news-makers is to be a contributor to what’s happening in the news. So, turn on CNN or Headline News; download news apps on your smart phone; follow media outlets on Twitter; listen to NPR — you really have a lot of options. But your goal every morning should be the same: Find out what the current events of the day are.
