ReporterConnection.com Is Free Service That Connects Busy Journalists With Experts Available for Media Interviews
BROOMALL, Pa., Dec. 22 /PRNewswire/ — Life got easier today for busy magazine, newspaper and online writers as well as radio/TV producers who need qualified experts they can quote or interview.
Today Bradley Communications Corp. launched ReporterConnection.com, a free service which allows journalists to announce source needs via email to up to 51,000 experts in the company’s database.
For instance, a reporter writing a story on “Tips for Sticking to New Year’s Resolutions” might announce a need for experts to quote about that topic and receive responses from authors, psychologists, self-improvement experts and university professors, as well as public relations firms representing similar experts.
Experts may enroll free at http://www.ReporterConnection.com to receive free email alerts each business day. When they spot a listing from a reporter seeking their type of expertise, they’ll reply directly through the ReporterConnection.com website.
Free to both journalists and experts, the new service offers two major advantages over most existing media source services.
First, unlike other services ReporterConnection.com does not need to publish the journalist’s email address to potential sources because all initial replies go through the company’s website.
Second, to ensure journalists receive on-target replies to their queries, ReporterConnection.com has created a unique “Media Reply Form” in which the journalists may list up to six specific questions they want experts to answer.
“Many journalists told us they hate receiving off-base replies through other services, so we created a system which almost ensures the potential source actually answers the reporter’s questions,” says Steve Harrison, co-founder of ReporterConnection.com
Journalists who’d like to submit listings of their current source needs may do so at http://www.ReporterConnection.com/press
