Craig Clark, one of our fine West Michigan PR entrepreneurs, has started a new service called GR Media Match.
The service allows West Michigan reporters to request sources for stories they are working on from West Michigan PR pros. It's sort of like a ProfNet (acquired a few years ago by PR Newswire) for our region.
According to an email I received from Clark recently, there are 50 PR pros signed up and 18 media outlets, with 20 more media outlets thinking about joining the local network (some outlets are counted more than once because there are several segments or programs at the same outlet signed on).
Kudos to Clark for a great idea, and for executing it.
