North Carolina paper to post company news releases on its site
by Chris Roush
The Greensboro News & Record, a Landmark newspaper, announced Thursday that it will start posting company news releases in the business news section of its website.
Jeff Gauger writes, “You’ll now find press releases from companies with connections to the Triad publishing to the Business section as soon as they’re distributed by PR Newswire. The image below shows you where to look.
“Companies pay PR Newswire to distribute press releases. They’re not news in the sense that they haven’t been independently reported and edited, but many do contain real news all the same.
“You now can get and follow company announcements for our region at the same time that we’re getting them in the News & Record newsroom. For some, we’ll follow up with news reporting to get additional details, add context, tell you what they mean.
“Meanwhile, you’ll have the press release immediately.”
