There were several questions posted about getting copies of the NBC Nightly News Cohousing segment. I talked with a producer at NBC who said that copies can be ordered directly from NBC by calling 1-800-420-2626 . You'll need the date of the broadcast, which was Jan. 7th, 1998. The producer did not know how much it costs, so if someone tries this out, please post the price. As it turns out the producer that I was talking with is doing the editing of the Dateline NBC piece. It will be about ten minutes long and cover cohousing more extensively, including interviews with Chuck & Katie, etc. There is no scheduled air date as yet, although she said it will not run this month. We should have a little more advanced notice than the news piece - maybe a week vs. one day. Stay Tuned ! There was a question posted about what can be done to catch the eye of local or national media. My personal experience is that media follows other media. If it's news, they want a piece of it. When cohousing hit the cover of USA Today last summer, it started a greater interest in the national & local media. Right now cohousing is news. If you are building a group, call your local media and clue them in . Try to gather current stories (TV or print) as examples and see if they'll cover your project in detail. See the article in the Fall / Winter Cohousing Journal by Kay Abrahams about working with the media. Good Luck. O.K. enough about media. Time to go skiing ...
