3 Media Opportunities (6/16/09)
Fathers & Families is often contacted by reporters and TV producers looking for people willing to be interviewed for stories. Over the past year we've placed our supporters in numerous prominent venues, including Inside Edition, Fox's nationally-syndicated Morning Show with Mike & Juliet, the Associated Press, NPR, the Boston Globe, and many others. Often the stories touch on the family law & fatherhood issues Fathers & Families is devoted to. Sometimes the subject isn't particularly close to our issues, but we're happy to help our media contacts with their stories. Below are the Media Opportunities for this week. Please do not respond to them unless they are appropriate. 1) Author looking to interview single men about modern dating and "what men secretly think today's women." If this is you, please fill out the form below and begin the "Your Story" box with the word "Dating." 2) Reporter for major newspaper needs "people who have been forced to move back home with their family after losing their job or home, including divorced couples who are sharing homes, single parents teaming up to share housing costs, children moving back in with parents or parents moving in with their kids." If this is you, please fill out the form below and begin the "Your Story" box with the words "Moving Back Home." 3) A major magazine is looking for fathers who've enlisted or re-enlisted in the Armed Forces within the past year or so partly for economic reasons, particularly given the recession.
