Time, money and impact are the primary reasons to include a Radio Media Tour (RMT) by Tobin Communications, Inc. as part of your overall media campaign. An RMT maximizes your spokesperson’s time through the scheduling of back-to-back telephone interviews with radio news directors and talk show hosts.
The typical RMT can be scheduled over the course of a morning, or over a series of days or weeks. Your spokesperson should conduct the RMT in a quiet room and on a hard phone line.
- Drafting a media advisory;
- Pitching news directors and talk show producers;
- Teleconferencing and moderating interviews;
- Producing digital files of the interviews and showcasing your RMT through our RMT-Online service;
- Following up with news directors to determine usage of taped interviews;
- Preparing a summary report;
- Optional service #1: To help prepare your organization’s spokesperson for their RMT, we recommend Telephone Media Training by TCI; and
- Optional service #2: After the RMT is completed, we’ll pull soundbites from the tour that can be distributed through your social media channels and/or used to produce Podcasts & Video Content.
