    116 views and nobody at all commented or made suggestion?

    Jeez...I guess if you want something done you gotta do it yourself.

    Here is a list of some journalists as a text file:

    Hopefully someone else might think to contribute more and I will give the rest of the list....

    in your mind
    first from you post you were looking for journalists email and when none replied you uploaded some list, then maybe you dont need any list after all.
    well anyways, i think nobody does that stuff and that might be the reason why nobody is replying.

    Hi,

    Well the point of the journalists email list was was when a press release was written, that they would be emailed directly.

    That was one (but not the only) reason.

    True I uploaded a list after nobody replied, but I made that list after visiting a lot of sites and getting the relevant info.
    Naturally I didn't share all of them since there was no other contributions to this thread.

    I guess your right..nobody emails press releases to journalists directly anymore......I suppose people use a service for that and *cough* trust *cough* that service to deliver?
    Well guess what...I got my own list of about 400 journalists who will be sent the press release and this mailing is scheduled for Monday.
    Lets see how that works out...


    Thanks
    BB

    Lists of journalists are available, but expensive. In the UK Cision is the leader, & Pressloft for distributing releases, but of course each country is different. Journalists move around a lot & many are freelance, so lists are not free/cheap. They take a lot of work to maintain & the Cision list is £5k a year (from memory, might be more). It might be worth trying to join forces with other people in your country who are not competitors but roughly in your niche (I think the lists are segemented).

    Just google the journalist name , you gonna find them on FB , twitter or Linkedin :)
    The second option is to contact the journal phone or email asking them to get you in touch with that journalist as you want to tell him an urgent story that he is interested in :D
