Our pal Atticus has created a new site called SourceBarn, sourcebarn.com. Like ProfNet, this free service connects journalists with sources and experts. Unlike ProfNet, it’s focused on Alabama-based professionals.
I wanted to let you know about a great local website for Alabama reporters and publicists. It’s called SourceBarn, and it’s FREE. Reporters, editors and authors looking for sources can post queries on the site. Those queries are shared with PR folks, marketing types and others who can help track down great interviews. This a way for reporters to make their stories sing, and for publicists to get their clients/organizations some great ink!
You can check it out at SourceBarn.com. Remember, the more people use it, the better it works, so please forward this on to as many people as you can think of.
Reporters: The next time you’re on deadline, give it a try by sending your query to Atticus, who’ll distribute it via e-mail.
PR pros: Sign up for his e-mail list to get the queries from state journalists.
The more you use the site, the more it will grow.
