Managing Media Relations webinar

Working with the media can be intimidating when you don’t know what you’re doing. During this webinar, you will learn what reporters want in a news story and how to get the news coverage your organization needs to elevate awareness of healthy eating and active living initiatives and resources in your community. Participants will gain a better understanding of how to establish relationships with local media, the types of information to pitch and media relations tools to use.
