What is public relations

What is Public Relations?

  • Maintaining goodwill & understanding with your audiences

Rotary District 7590 * www.rotary5790.org


Not the enemy

Not the Enemy

  • Newsworthy vs. noteworthy

Rotary District 7590 * www.rotary5790.org


Is it news

Is it News?

Adage about media perspective:

Making our news their news

“It’s not news if a dog bites a man, but it is news if a man bites a dog.”

Rotary District 7590 * www.rotary5790.org


What makes something newsworthy

What makes something newsworthy

How media outlets determine newsworthiness

Journalists make judgments about what is newsworthy and what is not for their readers and viewers. There is a limited amount of time and space for the news. The more newsworthy your story is, the better chance it has of making the news.

Rotary District 7590 * www.rotary5790.org


What makes something newsworthy1

What makes something newsworthy

Qualities of Newsworthiness

Proximity – story happens in media outlets’ reach

Example: An Abilene Rotary club’s activities won’t normally make the Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Rotary Example: It’s hard to get your local media to cover a Rotary event in India unless people from your area were at the event. Media outlets look for ways to “localize” news.

Rotary District 7590 * www.rotary5790.org


What makes something newsworthy2

What makes something newsworthy

Qualities of Newsworthiness

Timeliness/Immediacy - the story happens now or soon. You don’t want to wait weeks after the 4-way test speech contest to pitch a story about it to the media.

Example: An event two weeks ago is way too old for most media outlets. They would prefer to look ahead (preview) than review a story.

Rotary Example: You’d want to pitch a story about your RYLA participants before the June conference.


What makes something newsworthy3

What makes something newsworthy

Qualities of Newsworthiness

Prominence - a prominent person or place is included in the story

Example: Your doctor’s report doesn’t make the news, but your country’s president’s does. It’s only because of prominence that the story is reported.

Rotary Example: If the mayor or other local prominent people (like your club’s president) are involved in programs, you have an element of prominence.


What makes something newsworthy4

What makes something newsworthy

Qualities of Newsworthiness

Impact/Consequences - the larger the impact or potential impact of a story, the more newsworthy it is. How many people will your story affect? The media outlet needs to see how your story impacts readers.

Example: A snow storm that shuts down most of America and leaves millions without heat is more newsworthy than a storm that shuts down your neighborhood pool.

Rotary Example: A district-wide Polio effort has more than 3,000 Rotarians behind it. Polio efforts themselves impact millions.


What makes something newsworthy5

What makes something newsworthy

Qualities of Newsworthiness

Conflict/Controversy - a story might have an element of conflict or controversy

Example: Look at the front page of today’s newspaper or news website. Media outlets are drawn to conflict.

Rotary Example: Your water drilling team can’t travel to Mexico because of bandits at the border.

What makes something newsworthy6

What makes something newsworthy

Qualities of Newsworthiness

Human Interest/Emotional Appeal - a story has heart or talks about individuals and their lives

Example: A personality profile about your mayor and her struggles with polio as a child.

Rotary Example: A feature story about your Ambassadorial Scholar and why he chose to study social work in America

Rotary District 7590 * www.rotary5790.org


What makes something newsworthy7

What makes something newsworthy

Qualities of Newsworthiness

Unusual/Bizarre/Singularity- a story is bizarre or unusual or unexpected. It could also be a first or historical kind of story.

Example: Long lost sisters find each other at the local supermarket because of a billing error.

Rotary Example: Your club is the only one in the world chosen to conduct a special pilot program.
