Session Abstract

Are you looking to increase your media profile? Do your articles and op-eds get ignored or rejected by editors at mainstream periodicals? Do you panic and mumble into the mic when doing radio interviews, or fumble and flail when in front of a camera? Do you have, or need to have, a social media platform to get noticed by major media today? 

For helpful tips in crafting articles and op-eds that don’t get rejected, participating in radio and TV interviews and navigating social media platforms that will highlight your research and establish you as producers’ go-to historian, join us to understand a few simple insights on how to get editors to say “yes” to your pitch, and producers to add you to their address books and book you onto their radio/TV shows.<
