Why don't you and Sue (bunstg@...
) consider working together
to coordinate the media part of our campaign? You both seem to have
ideas and contacts, so I think you'd make a tremendous team!
Speaking only for myself, I tend to be media shy. I'm happy to
correspond with reporters via email, but I'm not willing to go "on
air" (microphones and cameras just aren't my thing).
P.S. It might be a good idea to invite your media contacts to join
our group. There is a wealth of information here and plenty of
members to interview via email.
