We work with newspaper personnel every day. We know whom to contact at each newspaper.
More importantly, they know us. They recognize our addresses and read what we send to them.
When we send your story by email, we never clutter the header with long strings of addresses that would cause the message to be caught in spam filter.
We send direct to the primary newsroom contact.
So when you let us deliver your story or press release, you know it will be noticed.
