Our experience working with print, television and radio news organizations gives us insights into how mass media can help you deliver your message to special audiences. We can share with you ideas and strategies for working in a mutually-beneficial way with local newspapers and broadcast stations. We offer media training to College of Agriculture faculty and staff, Cooperative Extension specialists, and periodically to select non-profit or governmental groups. Please let us know if you’d like to schedule training or if you have general questions about media.
