Use the prepared news release template as the basis of your news
release. Carefully edit out the variable phrases as you fill in
your personal details.
The news release template uses a different writing style than
you may be accustomed to. For example, "internal medicine" does not
begin with capital letters, and, if you have a subspecialty, keep
that in small letters as well. The rationale is that the news media
are more likely to use information that already adheres to their
standard writing style.
Some other style/content items:
Most publications prefer to receive news releases this way.
After you complete the news release as directed above:
Note: Send e-mailed news releases individually. If you have an
extensive list and must do multiple addresses at once, do not use
the "CC" field, but the "BC" one instead.
If mailing copies of your news release, follow standard news
release formatting, which is:
There are at least five good news outlets for a news release
If mailing news releases, address them to the Editor, or, for
large daily newspapers, address the City Desk. If you know the
Editor's name, use it. Correct spelling is important.
Keep in mind that news releases are used and edited at the
discretion of the publication. Do not call a
newspaper to see if they received your news release, or to ask when
it will be run.
If you have questions about the press release, please contact
