What is a Press Release?

A press release - (news release, media release, press statement, video release) - is defined as a written or recorded communication directed at members of the news media for the purpose of announcing something ostensibly newsworthy.

Press releases are generally mailed, faxed, or e-mailed to assignment editors and journalists at newspapers, magazines, websites, radio stations, online media, television stations or TV networks.

A press release is mainly considered to be a pseudo-news story - generally written in the 3rd person - that seeks to demonstrate to an editor or reporter the news-worthiness of a particular person, event, service or product.

Press releases can announce a range of various news items, such as scheduled events, personal promotions, awards, new products and services, sales and/or accomplishments, etc.
