Press Release

The press release is a critical tool informing people about activities. Its purpose is to educate or inform the press, not the public. A press release can be used to announce upcoming events, publicize concerns, or provide background information on news events. Press releases may be hand delivered, faxed, mailed, or emailed to a paper, radio, or TV station. A guide to writing a press release is as follows:

  • First or lead paragraph: All essential information: who, what, where, why, and when.

  • Second or body paragraph: Important factual or supporting information.

  • Third paragraph: Quotes and statistics.

  • Last or summary paragraph: Background and contact information about SPUSA, your chapter, and other sponsoring or endorsing groups mentioned in the release.
