For years now, I have been sent press releases, news releases and media advisories and I have reported on the various important announcements or newsworthy items from these media releases.
On Thursday, I was surprised to find myself actually in a press release or a news report. The first mainstream news report I was ever mentioned in was earlier this year when NewsTalk1010 used me as a source and one of my videos.
I'm not sure if you can count the monthly Digital Journal press release of the top 20 contributors...
Economic Collapse News announced in a press release that it has hired me to as a reporter to cover important economic news story from an Austrian Economics perspective.
Next month will mark my seventh year working in the media/journalism industry and the publisher at ECN topped off the seventh anniversary with a celebratory news release.
Anyway, here is the press release titled "Economic Collapse News is pleased to announce that Andrew Moran has signed on as a news reporter".
I assure you this is not cheap publicity.
I know ECN is always looking for contributors, either freelance or staff or those who are willing to submit items on occasion, so if you're interested contact the publisher, Stephen Otto.
Update: Yikes. It's all over the Internet now. Oh mah goodness...
All I have to say to reporters is: No comment.
