Using the Media to Tell Your Story


Invest In Your Future - 20% Discount for 2020

The media landscape is powered by a fast-paced, 24/7 news cycle, and anyone with an internet connection can broadcast news. Strategic communicators need to understand what drives reporters today – the realities of newsrooms, the ecosystem and the question of what constitutes news – and how to break through the noise to tell your story.

In this course, you will learn how to tell your story, share news and build relationships with the media. You will learn key techniques for media interviews, which will then be tested through a video-taped interview. The class will learn the art and importance of creating editorial calendars and the tools with which professionals reach out to share their stories.
