Press Release Basics
All releases will be evaluated for editorial fit with the information
needs of the magazine's or daily's subscribers and newsworthiness. CEDaily will also gauge according to timeliness. CED
receives great quantities of releases each day and reads all pertinent
ones. Aside from the preceding criteria, CED uses releases
on a space-available basis. Advertising is not a consideration in
selecting press releases for publication.
How to submit a release:
Despite popular premises that it's best to call editors about
releases, the easiest and most efficient way to inform CED
about your news is:
To send a hard copy (only
one, please) to Dana Mendell, executive editor,
(303) 470-4890 FAX or e-mail to: email@example.com.
Faxing to various staff wastes resources and can actually
processing of the release by increasing coordination tasks.
CED encourages black-and-white or color photos
with press releases, especially regarding people and products intended
for the print version. Unless specifically requested by CED,
please do not e-mail images. CEDbroadband directpresently
does not use images.
Because photos go through a lengthy scanning process
for reproduction, please ship releases accompanied by photos for
receipt no later than the first of the month prior to the publication
month. CED's editors will evaluate your release and call
if additional information or photos are needed
Editorial deadlines: CED magazine's latest deadline for an issue date is the
first of the month which precedes the publication date. If yours
is late-breaking news, please contact Dana Mendell, (303)
in advance to ensure appropriate attention to your news and to ease
space planning if needed.
CEDbroadband direct prefers press releases
by 10 a.m. Denver time to consider it for that day's Daily.
If your news is breaking or may fit that day, and applies to CEDaily's
readers, please call CED Editor Jeff Baumgartner
at 303-470-4838 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please limit other calls to post-noon Denver time.
Due to space and time considerations, neither CED magazine
nor CEDbroadband direct can guarantee publication of a release
or photo in a specific issue or on a specific day. Every effort
is made to ensure timely treatment of the information received.
Other guidelines: CED magazine is primarily staff-written but does welcome
submitted articles on a limited basis. (Please see Writers'
Guidelines.) If you would like to discuss a story idea for submission
or send a letter to the editor (300 words max), contact Jeff Baumgartner,
editor, at (303) 470-4838, email@example.com or (303) 470-4890 FAX.
Because of time and other constraints,
CEDbroadband direct uses only staff-written material.
