“Channel-5 news is potentially interested in doing a story on how local hams may be assisting with emergency communications for the tragic Tsunami events.
The aim will be less on hams and more on the event itself but it is still obviously good PR for the ham community.
Please forward any concrete leads on who is helping to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will forward it to the Executive Producer who is Joanne Pallotta (she is quite busy!). If I cannot be reached, Joanne can be reached at 781-433-4497 but keep your verbal introduction and details trimmed to an “elevator speech” and she will guide the conversation from there.
Thanks and good luck.
