This event will be recorded for WBEZ’s Chicago Amplified.

The new trend of hyperlocal news coverage is redefining the news landscape. Is this a new opportunity to target your brand, client or product for a certain niche audience? Or, is it a waste of your valuable media relations time? What are the opportunities it is/will afford PR pros and their strategy of story pitches? Our March panel will explore this issue.
