Attracting Media Coverage of Your Research - A Conversation Among Rutgers Faculty and Communications Professionals

Many Rutgers faculty members are regularly featured in the media – ranging from the Star Ledger to the Today Show. But how did they attract this attention? How can Rutgers faculty rely on the know-how and resources of University media relations to help spread the word about their research? And how can University media relations rely on the expertise of Rutgers faculty to help raise the visibility of the University? What are the components of an effective news release? Rutgers media professionals and faculty members regularly featured in the media will share their tips on how to be an effective communicator in a climate where competition for ink and air time is intense.
