Out Of The Bubble: Why you need traditional media

The Right People in the Right Places: Simple ways to research
Go to events where journalists congregate, such as press conferences or launches, and network.

If a freelance journalist contacts you when writing a story, ask if you can have a phonecall with them, rather than simply giving your comment via email.
