PR Newswire: news distribution, targeting and monitoring
Feb 17 2014

Visit the Newly Revamped PR Newswire for Journalists

Exciting news, folks! We have relaunched our media-only site, PR Newswire for Journalists.

Effective this morning, PRNJ has a new look and feel to it.

For those of you already familiar with the site, all current profiles, newsfeeds, and email preferences will stay intact.

Among the new features is the ability to instantly customize a newsfeed from a search. We also have a community page, where you can check out industry job listings and media moves.

You also now have an optimized view of the site on your cell phone and/or tablet.

Finally, and as a member of this blog community here, I'm proud to announce PR Newswire features a new blog on PRNJ called Beyond Bylines.

The blog is journalist- and blogger-focused, in terms of content and will include tips, trends, columns, and other information. Expect this first week of the new site to include posts highlighting each of the new features there.

Blog reviews featured on PR Newswire for Bloggers also will make their way over to the new PRNJ blog. (Follow us @BeyondBylines.)

Want to see more? We have a video on the new site.

Christine Cube is a media relations manager for PR Newswire and freelance writer. Give her a holler, if you have any questions.

Customized Newsfeeds

Don't let the name PR Newswire for Journalists dissuade you. This is a great service for bloggers. Any content creator -- whether you're a journalist, freelancer or blogger -- can set up a customized profile to receive releases based on preferences. You also have access to hi-res photos, media-only content such as media advisories and embargoed releases, and experts via ProfNet.


Need expert sources? Check out ProfNet, a service that helps journalists, bloggers, authors, and other content creators connect with experts -- at no charge. Sending a query is easy: Just fill out a form detailing the kind of expertise you need, how you want to be contacted, and your deadline. ProfNet will do the rest. You also can sign up for a weekly "tip sheet" of experts and story ideas. Visit ProfNet for more info or go directly to the query form.

ProfNet Connect

ProfNet Connect is a free, interactive online community where PR professionals, experts, and media professionals can network and engage with one another. Via profiles, forums and blogs, subject-matter experts can position themselves as the go-to source for content creators and journalists. In turn, content creators can search the site by keyword to find the experts they need. The site also features enhanced profile capabilities, allowing users to easily add multimedia components -- photos, videos, white papers and more -- to their profiles.

News Widget

Our widget allows you to display PR Newswire content on your site with very little back-end programming required.  You not only get the headline, but also the body of text of the news release, keeping the user on your site at all times.  In order to do so, the difference between our Widget and other widgets is at the end of the sign-up process, you will be provided with two pieces of source code -- one for the page where the Widget itself will be displayed and one for the pages that will display the body of text of each news release.  In addition, the sign-up process allows you to have 100 percent control over every aspect of the Widget's appearance, so that the Widget can blend in fully with the look and feel of your site. Still not convinced? Here's what one blogger had to say about the widget.
