You’ve got that wrong! Journalists are just like us, only their job is finding stories to write about, that will be of interest to their readers or viewers. They are not out to ‘get you’ or ‘trip you up’. We like to get real journalists to come along to our events to help people with their stories and writing.
The number one thing that participants say is how ‘normal’ they are and how they are approachable. The journalists regularly say how much they enjoy hearing people’s stories and how hard it is to find good content.
They need you. The more good stories you can send their way, the happier they are. Why not build your own relationships directly with journalists who like what you have to say?
