For select events that may generate significant news media attention, our staff can work with the event planners to publicize those happenings off campus. That can take the form of calendar listings in local publications, reaching out to key journalists, or managing logistics for visiting news media who wish to cover the day’s program. If you’re planning an event that may be of interest to the news media, use our form below to submit a request, and one of our staff will be in touch. Please note: Panel discussions and guest speakers typically draw very limited attention from the news media.
When the Thomas and Dorothy Leavey Center for the Study of Los Angeles created its Forecast LA report and conference, it entered a crowded field of local economic forecasts. What made the LMU Center's project different was its innovative combination of economic forecasting and public opinion surveys. Media Relations staff pushed that new approach in our outreach, and the morning event and report have been covered by the Los Angeles Times, KPCC 89.3 FM, CBS-2 News, KFWB 980 AM, L.A. Business Journal, LA Weekly, La Opinion, the Riverside Press-Enterprise, and even ChineseToday.com.Forecast L.A.
