If you have a story idea about values, religion, spirituality or philanthropy, consider pitching it to reporters at the Religion News Service, owned by Newhouse News Service.
The news service has more than 100 secular clients, including The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, U.S. News & World Report, Time and Newsweek magazines, National Public Radio and ABC World News. In addition, RNS has more than 200 religious clients, ranging from the Catholic Register to Christianity Today and the nation’s leading Jewish weeklies.
If you’re an expert spokesperson who will be interviewed by the religious or secular press, know how to be the type of source the media return to again and again. ” Media coach Al Rothstein, who was my guest during a telephone seminar a few years years ago called “How to be an Expert Spokesperson the Media Love,” says one of the key differences between a spokesperson and an expert spokesperson is that the expert spokesperson isn’t afraid to make predictions. In other words, a spokesperson is simply the messenger who knows how to deliver the message in a way the media want to receive it. An expert spokesperson is not only a good messenger, but the media can tap into expert’s brain.
