RECOMMENDED FOR ALL OF US PR TYPES
Check out PR pro Peter Shankman's cool and useful mailing list, "If I Can Help a Reporter Out..." I highly recommend signing up for it.
Here's his description:
I built this list because a lot of my friends are reporters, and they call me all the time for sources. Rather than go through my contact lists each time, I figured I could push the requests out to people who actually have something to say.
These requests only come from reporters directly to me. I never take queries from that other service, I never SPAM, and I'm not going to do anything with your email other than send you these reporter requests when they arrive in my in-box.
