Utilize The Media

MediaUsing 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.
