How to get the local media to report on events in your community?

As we get ready for our event Autism and Employability, we approach the press wanting to get exposure and let Tampa Bay know their involvement is needed.

Our latest experience…
– Sent note via FB to local reporters stating:

Help me invite Chick-fil-A HR folks!
They should participate in our event – Autism and Employability
They must #presumecompetence and realize that #Autismisnotscary

Man with autism sues Chick Fil A for discrimination!  http://www.10news.com/news/national/chick-fil-a-discriminated-against-job-applicant-with-autism-lawsuit-claims

To our surprise, this morning we met Gayle Guyardo from WFLA News Channel 8​ in Tampa Bay. She interviewed us and a report will be shown this Wed Jan 18 –  AM and PM shows!

Lesson learned…   Persistence, Insistence… with a touch of controversy that ties into your reality, makes it happen!
We can do this…

** We’ll  be very surprised if Chick fil A participates in our event. We shall see what is going to happen with the lawsuit against them.
