MEDIA RELEASE

For Release:
Date
Time

For more information contact:
Insert contact name, telephone #, email address here

Insert subject line here

vetInsert location here (e.g., Ottawa, Canada) – The contents of your press release go here. Keep in mind that media agencies can receive hundred of press releases daily; therefore, it is imperative that your document contains a subject line (above) that adequately summarizes the contents within one line. The body of the press release (which you will type in this space) must also be to the point and include all of the important information (who, where, why, what, when?). The body content should not be longer than one single-sided page. Attachments could be included if necessary (e.g., financial graphs to accompany a corporate financial press release), or recipients can be directed to a web site with more information (double check both the typing accuracy of the web site address, as well as confirm that the site works properly). As well, the top of your release contains contact information, should the recipient wish to contact your company for more information or an interview. Be certain that the person listed as the contact will be available for calls (not have a full voice mail box) and that he/she is authorized to speak on behalf of the company.
