Request Curated Press Releases

As part of Australian Associated Press, we know how busy working in journalism can be. With hundreds of releases coming through your inbox daily, we have Medianet’s Editor Service to ensure you are discovering only the most relevant and newsworthy story items in one email – the Media Alert Bulletin (MAB).

This editorial service is free of commercial influence and will assist you with:

  • Discovering new story opportunities with relevance to the current news agenda or with future worth
  • Identifying stories with ready-to-use multimedia elements including videos, photos and audio grabs
  • Saving time by not having to read every single release yourself

The Media Alert Bulletin includes:

  • Summaries of newsworthy press releases sorted from the tens of thousands we receive every year
  • ONLY stories with current or future news value are sent to you in a special news bulletin to assist with future story planning and to ensure you don’t miss out on breaking news stories
  • Discover potential news stories with added editorial value such as videos, images, audio files and comment-worthy quotes

The Media Alert Bulletin is a free service provided by AAP to assist you in cutting through the noise. Available exclusively to verified editorial personnel, there are no fees, no contracts or charges associated with registering for this service and you can unsubscribe at any time.
