Conference Calls

Conference calls are a good idea for breaking news events in which either the target reporters or the event speakers are not locally available. There are several companies that organize conference call 800 numbers for a fee. They will provide an 800 number for reporters to call in, listen, and ask questions. These services will also keep track of each person who signs on to the call for your follow-up.

Timing is a bit more flexible on these since reporters can call in from anywhere, but be aware of different time zones and the outlet deadlines that still apply. You may also want to send press kits to reporters who express interest during press calls, so that they are better prepared.
