Effective media relations is the sum of the right story in the right media at the right time. Combine this with the reality of the digital news universe and the story now travels the world on the wings of third-party endorsement. Yet, the front page of the newspaper, the top of the newscast and above-the-scroll line on a major web portal is earned, not paid for.
