Start following those reporters on Twitter.

If they aren’t on Twitter, find out which social media platforms they are on. Usually it’s Twitter or LinkedIn.


Learn their beat, what they report about and what their objective and purpose are.


Send the reporter a good story idea that you are sure will help them.


Comment insightfully on their articles at least once every month. Repost their article to your network.
