When developing a media kit, the templates provided can be tailored to write the fact sheet, internal media kit and news release for a specific event. In addition to these resources, consider whether pitch letters, leadership bios and itineraries might also be needed. Check with your unit to determine what is required and whether existing resources are available for your use. For example, standardized leadership bios may be available to include in your media kit.
