Utilize The Media
Using the media as a
communication tool can be helpful in getting your message out to the
public or drawing attention to an issue. You may contact the media to
inform them of community events, (e.g., motorcyclist-hosted toy runs),
draw their attention to an issue that affects the community but is not
being covered, (e.g., the need for motorcycle parking), or to simply
thank them for covering a positive motorcycle-related story. The
following are tips on writing an effective letter to a newspaper’s
editor. Communicating with radio talk shows and local television
stations can be productive as well.
