Please head over to PRWeb and BusinnessWire (two major news release distribution services) and read at least 6 news releases of your choice.
As you read the news releases, try to pay attention to the following:
- what is the news the release is communicating? is it newsworthy? for whom?
- what are common format elements that all news releases seem to have?
- what is the writing style of news releases?
It might be a good idea to write a blog post on your PROpenMic blog summarizing your observations.
Then, listen to the lecture about News and News Releases, and start tackling the news release assignments on Blackboard.
