Local media is not just crime reports and sports coverage. Local media provides a more detailed picture of the community and the impact of what is going on around us. Local media coverage connects businesses, nonprofits, and members of the community like nothing else and provides immeasurable value.
Recognizing this value, large businesses and nonprofits often have PR and/or media relations people that make every effort to keep their organizations in the news. Small businesses and nonprofits often miss out because they rarely have PR or media relations people on staff.
Your small business or nonprofit has a story to tell and getting it into the right hands can help stimulate the growth of your organization, so BBB and CEF are proud to present:
“Getting on the Radar: A Conversation with Louisville Media”
as part of the 2017 BBB Education Series
Brought to you by the BBB Consumer Education Fund (CEF) and BBB Serving Louisville, Southern Indiana, and Western Kentucky
The event is FREE but seating is limited so you must register.
Get your small businesses or nonprofit face to face with local media.
Join us on Monday April 17th, 2017 from 5 – 7pm when your small business or nonprofit can get face to face with experts from local print, digital, radio, and television media for a panel discussion moderated by Bandy Carrol Hellige.
