Startup BizCast #33 – What is News? (Steve Mullen)

Ever wonder how news outlets decide what to report and what not to report on? In this episode of Startup BizCast I go solo, and try to give you an explanation, as well as some tips to beef up the newsworthiness of your news release or story idea. I didn’t mention this in the episode, but let’s make sure this is clear — I’m talking about traditional media. Things like new media and social media … well, that’s another episode.

In this week’s BizCast Brief: Health insurance a problem for small business owners, Wal*Mart in the SEO business, and help for your 2008 business plan.
