Media Relations

This group works to build partnerships with the media and to promote program initiatives through writing and distributing feature stories and news releases.

The staff writes news stories and releases to support research, educational, and outreach programs, as well as publicize events in MSU’s Division of Agriculture, Forestry, and Veterinary Medicine. The stories are distributed weekly to media outlets across the state for publication. Extension personnel can access clippings data through the Extension Intranet.

News writers also respond to requests from both print and broadcast media outlets to ensure that the Division’s message is consistent and far-reaching. Contact Keri Lewis or other team members to get information written and distributed to Mississippi newspapers, farm magazines, or newsletters.

How can we help you?
We've developed materials and information that we hope will help specialists, sources, and Extension field staff better understand how we can work together. (Extension Publication P2739)

Extension agents: if you're looking for ideas to help you connect with local media outlets, please visit the "Start Spreading the News" archives for media relations tips.
