Is your office closing early tomorrow? Or, will you be working with reporters to help them fill in the enormous news hole that is the holiday weekend?
I mean, how many stories on travel issues and rising gas costs can one do?
The benefits can be two fold: you provide reporters with a newsworthy quote, nugget of information or in-studio guest when they need it. Second, you be-friend the junior reporters who tend to work the holiday shifts, and maybe reap the benefits of those relationships once they get promoted down the line.
Do you have a “slow news day” or holiday weekend pitching success story? Share it with us.
