The Broadcast Media Opportunity

Many PR strategies focus on print media and this is understandable, the trade press in your industry tend to be a sympathetic place for your organisation to get coverage, and from there it’s fairly common to begin to get attention from national newspapers too. But, the broadcast media often get left out of communication strategies, particularly by smaller organisations that think it’s not the place for them. However, this is a real missed opportunity and, as long as you’re fulfilling some basic criteria, there’s no reason why a business or any size can’t get coverage on TV or radio broadcast platforms.

Why Embrace TV and Radio Media?

  • Expanding Audience Reach: Broadcast media presents an opportunity to reach new and diverse audiences, often on a larger scale compared to print media. The generalist nature of broadcast news ensures broader exposure for your organisation.

  • Enhanced Brand Visibility: Being featured on TV or radio can significantly elevate your organisation’s profile and brand awareness, offering a powerful platform to showcase your story directly to the audience.

  • Direct Engagement: TV and radio interviews provide a platform for firsthand communication, allowing audiences to connect with your organisation on a personal level. It’s an ideal avenue for conveying complex or challenging messages directly to the audience.

  • Demonstrating Accessibility: Participation in broadcast media signals to stakeholders that your organisation is transparent, accessible, and actively engaged with the public, reinforcing a positive image.

Advantages of Authentic Communication For Broadcast Media 

  • Unfiltered Message Delivery: Unlike print media, broadcast interviews allow you to communicate directly with the audience in your own words, eliminating the risk of misinterpretation or misquotation.

  • Extended Shelf Life: Broadcast footage can be repurposed for marketing purposes or shared digitally, extending the longevity of your coverage beyond its initial airing.

Presentation Skills Increase Credibility

Indeed, mastering the art of presenting can help enhance professional credibility and authority, helping ensure that thoughts are articulated persuasively and with credibility.
