Star’s Adopt a Journo program back for 2016

NOW that school is back and most people have, however begrudgingly, returned to work and their normal routines, it's time to talk about our Adopt a Journo program.

This program is aimed at the publicity officers for non-profits, schools, community and sporting organisations.

We launched it last year and had about 50 to 60 groups contact us and be given a journalist to call their very own. Well, at least, act as a conduit into the paper and its online and social media offerings.

That proved to be a very successful partnership in plenty of cases with several front page stories or photos resulting from this connection.

If it didn't work out to your expectations, let's fix that in Adopt a Journo 2016.

In the coming week we will publish the list of groups who've already signed up to the scheme and the journos they have been given as their contacts at the Star.

Next step is to renew that partnership by phone or email.

For those who were not part of the program last year, here is your chance to get on board.

Getting publicity in The Northern Star has never been easier and we have plenty of ways you can upload your own material via our website.

Coverage in the Star will reach a massive audience on the Northern Rivers including: 68,000 readers per week of our print edition, 76,000 unique visitors per week to our website, nearly 16,000 Facebook followers and 2800 Twitter followers.

In the mean time, send expressions of interest to news@northernstar.com.au.
