Media to receive advance notices of upcoming releases, events

Published: February 22 2013


GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Starting today, the University of Florida Media Relations Office will send a budget to media every Friday for the following week’s news releases about research, grants and related announcements.

Our goal is to give you the opportunity to better plan and organize your coverage of the university. Like your own budgets, ours is subject to change, so please feel free to contact our office to inquire about the status of a particular news release. In addition, UF Media Relations will no longer send individual releases about events on campus. Instead, we will provide an event roundup with contact information for each event every Monday.

Here is next week’s budget:
