JOHNA BURKE:  Hello, this is Johna Burke with BurrellesLuce, and I’m here at the Bulldog Media Relations Summit.  I’m here with Jennifer.

Jennifer, will you please introduce yourself?

JENNIFER HA:  Hi.  I’m Jennifer Ha, executive director of digital media at New York Public Radio.  And I’m here at the conference and I’d love to tell you how you can get in touch with us at New York Public Radio.  So the best way is through email, and we do read our emails. 

And also know who you’re trying to reach and what they cover because it’s really important to target your pitches and understand what’s important to the person that you’re pitching to.  Also, please do not use red exclamation points, please, please, please.  That means emergency to me. Because if you do use one, I’ll put you in our spam filter. Sorry.

BURKE:  Excellent tip.  And especially if, you know, you’re trying to represent your client or your organization, you know, it’s just as important to know what not to do as to know what to do.  Jennifer, thanks so much. Where can people find you in social media?

HA:  We’re on Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, YouTube.  You name it, we’re on it.

BURKE:  Great.  Thank you so much.

HA:  Thank you.
