how do i get ahold of the news so they can broadcast it. help please. i dont know what to do
First of all, I am so sorry to hear this. I just read your post. I pray that everyone is found together, safely. SOON. As for the news, there should be a local news website that you can go to & gather the contact info, at least that's how it is here. Or, you can call info for the local news station(s). I hope they blast this story all over for you. Hang in there.
thanks girl. im going to do that now
Have you contacted the police stations where they were last seen?
yea i think her mom already did that. ugh
Ceejay - You need to call each local news station's assignment desk: KCBS, KNBC, KABC, KCAL, KTTV, KCOP. It may be too late for them to air this evening but ask them if they'll pitch it for their shows tomorrow. Beware the assignment desk gets a lot of calls a day and they're super stressed out. They have to verify a missing report was filed and confirm with the authorities who have juridisdiction to see if they can get them on the air or a quote from them. It takes time. I used to work for local tv news in LA and we got calls many, many times a day.
If you guys have the pics ready to email/fax them and/or a website will help. And keep following up. You might get get the brush off but be persistent.
If you need anything else, call or email me. I hope this helps.
thank you so much.. ill be sure to keep trying. im a wreck right now..
what happened ceejaydee? I missed it. I hope everyone is okay!
Gather as much info as you can before you call...get the name of the officer/deputy your aunt filed the report with, their number, etc and be ready to provide that info as well as their car license, what they were wearing last, and where they were head from last.
AND call the local newstations in Vegas & Laughlin. You'll have a better chance there if there's a current amber alert for the children. Also, maybe someone saw them or the car last.
Okay I missed it the first time around so anyone reading the posts out of order like me:
omg ceejay! i feel sick.... like i said before i am praying for there safe return asap! i agree with mrs gg get as much info out there as possible and get there pic's out there! someone somewhere has to have seen them & info! find out where they last were that you know of! and get them 2 cheeck security cameras there might be important info on there! good luck.... *******hugs*******
Some phone numbers to get you started:
Fox 11 News & Good Day LA: 310-584-2369NBC 4 News tipline: 818-244-6397
ABC 7 Breaking News Tipline: (877) 777-6397
CBS/KCAl mainline 818) 655-2000
Also, if the kids have any medical conditions or anything, highlight those. Mention immediately that there is an amber alert in effect. If you think the family is in danger in anyway, state the reason (example: the mother's ex is recently paroled etc). That will call someones attention more to jump on it. If she's never gone longer than a day speaking with her mom and now she hasnt talked to her in a long time. Highlight that. Also make sure you give them the investigators contact information so they can verify everything. Once a journalist myself, a lot of times when a whole family is missing, people assume the family chose to go missing. So they're a little skeptical. The fact that there's an amber alert is a good sign that the news may want to mention it.Good luck!
