dc.description.abstract Planners can have the best ideas and the most progressive projects in the world. But if the local newspaper doesn't write about them, nobody will know about them. And if nobody knows about them, they might as well never have been done. Newspaper reporters and planners are going through a drastic change in their historically distant relationship. Increasingly, television news, USA Today and the Internet have replaced newspapers as the prime source for international and national news. Newspapers are now concentrating on local news. This is a golden opportunity for planners to not only raise the clout of their agency, but increase public support for their ideas. More coverage means more media scrutiny of planning issues. Understanding basic newspaper processes, and maintaining positive relationships with newspaper reporters, is a growing part of a successful planner's job.
