Your National Media Relations Partner

November 19, 2019

The Pew Research Center recently analyzed U.S. Census data from 2013 to 2017 and found that roughly one in five newsroom employees (22%) lives in New York, Los Angeles or Washington, D.C.

According to Pew’s analysis, New York has the greatest share of all U.S. newsroom employees (12%). They are employed as reporters, editors, photographers and videographers in the newspaper, broadcasting and internet publishing industries.

As part of the University Relations national media relations strategy, Brad Robideau conducts deskside visits with journalists in key markets, including New York and Washington. The purpose is to explore ways the U of M System can be a resource for their reporting. He is also interested in learning what current issues they are paying close attention to and may cover in the future.

If you would like to hear more about these deskside visits or discuss national media opportunities, please feel free to contact him at or 612-625-8431. He will be happy to hear from you.
