Is my story newsworthy?

Local and national media receive literally hundreds of media releases, emails and phone calls with potential story ideas each day. To help determine if your story is newsworthy, see how it stacks up against our four-point checklist.

Is my story newsworthy?

  1. Is there a 'wow' factor for the general community?
  2. Is this new? A world first?
  3. Is this related to a current issue in the news?
  4. Does this impact people / the community in a significant way?

If you answered yes to one or more these questions, get in touch with a member of the Media and Public Relations team who will discuss with you the best way to promote your story.
