CHICAGO, Sept. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Cision, an industry-leading earned media communications management and media advisory platform, today published a new report entitled "A Decade's Worth of Insight Into Media Preferences: Looking back at 10+ years of State of the Media". Cision has produced the State of the Media since 2010 and wanted to reflect on the totality of the industry survey results to see what lessons could be discovered in their archives.
Cision's State of the Media Report is a survey of original research, pulling together insights from journalists and influencers to capture their experience in the industry and their impressions around certain trends year-to-year. The survey has grown to now capture thousands of responses from over 15 countries.
While the annual survey's focus has shifted over the years, Cision still found consistent trends spanning the entire past decade – from trust in news sources to how journalists prefer to be pitched.
"A Decade's Worth of Insight Into Media Preferences" also highlights:
The major trends that have emerged over the past decade
How the industry has reacted and adapted to major changes
How PR professionals can better engage with journalists
How trust in the media has shifted over the years
The continued importance of press releases
"Looking back at a decade of insights from Cision's State of the Media has not only proved the value of analyzing data over time, but it has magnified the incredible changes in media in the last decade," said Sarah Parker, Content Marketing Manager at Cision. "Despite so many changes, we found that 10 years later, there are still countless similarities when it comes to the relationship between the media and PR professionals. While the landscape has greatly shifted, the importance of communicators building authentic relationships with journalists, by providing relevant and trustworthy content, has never been truer."
