Have a great Memorial Day weekend! But, wait to pitch your news…

Memorial Day weekend is upon us, marking not only a time to remember our veterans, but also the official start of summer! Woo hoo!

While I wish you all a relaxing LONG holiday weekend, I want to share a tip regarding issuing or pitching news next week. Avoid it. That is, if you can wait, it would be better to hold off until the week of June 1.

Many reporters (along with the rest of us) will be playing catch up when they return to the office Tuesday with a much fuller than normal inbox. And, it’s a short week that will have everyone feeling as though they’re behind anyway. So, my advice is to wait until things die down a little. If you can wait until June 2 or 3, you may be more likely to get a response.

Enjoy the three days off and see you next week!
