Look for a reporter who has covered similar stories before, and make that connection. Send this at least a week prior to the event.Sample Letter to the EditorThese short articles provide greater control over the content of your message, as they can be authored by a designated representative of the community (e.g., executive director). Share how your assisted living community helps residents explore their creative side with your local newspaper and magazine editors.Sample Press ReleaseNews releases are used to alert the local media of significant events, issues, services, programs, awards, and other events.
