Breaking Borders: Introducing the North American News Desk Package

North America
Today we took a big step at MediaHQ. We have added the contact details of 500 North American news desks across the USA and Canada to the platform. With this addition following on from our European news desks in 2023, it’s now possible to send a press release from Dublin to Detroit, or from Cork to Cologne using MediaHQ.

Our dedicated team has worked tirelessly over the past few months to create this comprehensive contacts package, enhancing users' media outreach to contacts overseas. We are delighted to announce that the North America News Desks Feature is now available for our customers to use.

The mission of MediaHQ is simple - to help you to connect your stories with your audiences and to get those stories further, faster and to more of the right people. 

I always see the mission as a challenge and we try to live up to it every day. In practical terms it means always looking for new contacts, new technologies, and new audiences who are interested in covering stories. 

We’ve come a long way. At the start we covered the traditional print and broadcast media, and dealt with printers and binders. Now we cover print, online, broadcast, social and podcasts and deal with software developers, data scientists and UI/UX designers. 

Here’s the full detail of the North American News Package: 

  • Over 500 news desk contacts across the United States and Canada including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Fox News, CNN, CNBC, all statewide news papers, National Public Radio and television affiliates. 
  • You can access these contacts seamlessly; and blend them into your media lists. 
  • All contacts keep up to date and 97% delivery guaranteed.
