What if I notice a media outlet is missing?
We want to know!
Please send media outlet information to us through our Contact Us Form. Be sure to include the name, web site address or a main phone number so we can research the outlet and get their information in the database.
Are there email addresses for every contact?
No, some media outlet want all press releases sent to a main email address and some want no press releases at all.
If a media outlet wishes to limit the information they share with us, or if they inform us that they do not accept press releases, we respect their wishes.
