The Changing Media Landscape: Connecting with niche publications and citizen journalists

Newsrooms continue to evolve and change. As a result, we are seeing a rise in niche publications and citizen journalism providing comprehensive and curated, on-the-ground coverage from neighborhoods and beyond. As PR pros, what can we do to partner with the journalists in our community to share relevant news related to the organizations we serve? Join your WMPRSA colleagues as we engage with journalists from several local publications to learn about what they’re doing and how we can amplify our work.
