I recently had an inquiry from a local person new to her job in p.r. asking whether she was sending her information to the right editor. Here's part of a response I send to her that might helpful to others out there:
In general, here are a few guidelines on where to send your releases.
For anything related to ships or business activities, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org (she covers the port and writes a weekly column called Portside, which includes information about visiting ships of all types).
For things relating to entertainment or food-related activities, send them to email@example.com and/or firstname.lastname@example.org. They oversee the Accent and DO sections where we run most of those items.
And if you’re unsure, send it to me or copy it to me, and I’ll send it along to the right person. I know it can be a little confusing, but maybe this will help.
BTW, my email address is email@example.com .
Obviously, this leaves out a lot of subject areas, but if you're unsure who should get your information, let me know and we'll direct it to the proper person.
One frequently asked question is how do I get a Newsmaker into Exchange and BiS? One of two ways: Go to www.businessinsavannah.com and click on the 'submit a newsmaker' tab or go to www.savannahnow.com/exchange/newsmakers/ and fill out the electronic form you'll find there.
