Media list and monitoring company Cision launched a new media portal today. Called “Media Members,” the site features media job postings, aggregated tweets from journalists, media industry news and email alerts to journalists for keywords/companies related to their area of coverage.
None of these features are necessarily new. For example, sites like MuckRack.com already aggregate journalist tweets, and sites like – ahem – mediabistro.com already offer job listings.
It is smart, however, for Cision to offer more services to members of the media, who can also update their Cision profiles from the site. We’re going to give the email alerts a whirl and will let you know how they work out.
