Befriend your local sportscasters/writers/radio guys. I have been told the local aspect of sports is very memorable to a local audience.

Make sure you are submitting whatever info/video/photos you can to anywhere you want coverage. If your package is complete, with other examples of any coverage, you stand a better chance of getting covered yourself.

Don't forget that most big communities daily newspapers have the weekly "regional supplement", send your stuff there...

I have an advantage being in the media already, but our Fox sports guy liked the Video, and that's why he wanted it on his sportscast...you just have to get your stuff in front of the right set of eyes...

Awesome Russ!

I am in the middle of a newspaper story right now locally & am planning the same sort of video thing for our local FOx affiliate here in Detroit after 100AW!

Great minds think alike?...

The local sportscaster did a bit on me last year. About 3-4 minutes on a Sunday evening sports wrap up. Gave him some incar and blasted gravel at the camera along the driveway. I didn't land any sponsors, but I got a lot of comments from customers, friends, and family who saw it.

I look at it more like, doing everything possible I can for current sponsor's exposure. I doubt anyone could land one like that.

Even somone rippin their driveway to shreds in a McDonalds EVO.

Excellent Russ! Don't forget that schools/teachers are always keen to have something different to attract the youngster's attention and if the driver happens to talk up doing well in school, well, BONUS!

My visit to Keystone School was a win-win-win gig for sure. I needed an assist from the local VW dealership but they weren't terribly interested in helping unless there was a tangible, near-term benefit. Since the local ABC affiliate was keen to keep their Good Morning Oklahoma Goes To School series going I got the TV station interested, got Brad Noe VW-Audi some exposure, they fixed the problems that ended our Ojibwe 2001 run, KTUL-8 TV got to air a different and popular piece and my daughters are still reaping the side benefits of having a rally racer Dad who got their school and a few of their friends on TV!
