We know how important positive media relations are for nonprofits. We want your organization to have the most up-to-date media information so that you spend your time and energy highlighting your special events and earned accolades, not tracking down the right contact.
That’s why we carefully compile and annually update the CNE Media Resource Guide. This comprehensive resource includes up-to-date print, radio, television, and online media contacts in Charlottesville and Albemarle County, as well as Augusta, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, Madison, Nelson, Orange, and surrounding counties.
For CNE members, the 2017 CNE Media Resource Guide is a free and valuable benefit available for download on your member landing page. For non-members, the Guide is available for purchase for $25 – send us an email if you are interested.
Building a positive relationship with reporters and media has long been an important outreach and communication goal for nonprofits, as reporters can help to attract press attention and disseminate information.
