What is the intent or purpouse of the initial media visit?

The intent or purpose of the initial visit is to establish contact with the proper person(s), gain information about the media, understand their policies, needs, and technical requirements, see if there are any changes from the previous year, and seek their cooperation.
(6)
Who should a recruiter ask for when they make their initial media visit?
(6)
Make the visit brief. Drop-ins are advised on initial visits, instead of appointments regardless if it takes several attempts to see the right person. The proper point of contact is the Public Service Director (PSD) or someone who handles public service for the station.
(7)
Should a recruiter just leave material when they make their initial visit.
(7)
Routinely the recruiter may be asked just to leave material; it is subsequently recommended not to bring advertising material on the initial visit at all. A recruiter or NCOIC can simply state that they have no material with them, but only wish to meet with and have a few minutes of the PSD's time.

How should a recruiter handle radio stations when they want air time?
(8)
Try to establish the recommended time and duration for PSA spots that the station can use.
