How can you get a story onto the news?

I was just curious about what it would take to get something onto the news.

If it is something of community interest, like a town-hall meeting to protest a zoning change, or you see something dangerous DOT may be doing, like a lack of signs for flagmen at a construction site, or you know of an abusive animal shelter, things like that are what interest the news. Have all your information written down and call them. I have done just that several times and made it to the nightly news....created quite a controversy with the one on our tornado sirens not working the night we had 5 tornadoes touch down in out little city (small ones but still a lot of widespread damage...but no one hurt). I had been telling the mayor that we could not hear the sirens and that we needed more to cover our growing town...no one listened....I kept all letters, etc and gave them to the news...sort of funny watching the mayor and councilmen trying to deny they had any knowledge of something when I had their answers to my letters right there in my hand.

A well advertised tradegy.
Or something amazing (an incredible scientific finding).
Or maybe a new record in something.

That depends. It's like a killing, but there are worse ways of dying every day. It just depends how it gets known.

Post it on their website, most news channels have people looking at ur posts to see if they are good enough to make it on tv
