Press release   •   Aug 17, 2011 07:30 BST

Mynewsdesk launches a Press Association channel to give your press releases and news visibility on the national news agency of UK and Ireland.

Publishing news and press releases to the Press Association channel on Mynewsdesk is a way to gain increased editorial exposure in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Choosing to publish in the Press Association Channel means a reach of more than 200 media outlets, through the UK media’s trusted source of information.  Press Association provides news content to media outlets such as The Guardian, BBC and Metro.

"We are very happy about our new channel partnership with Press Association, the national news agency which provides news content to media outlets in the UK. Starting off with Press Association as our first channel partner in the UK was a natural choice. This gives us the credibility we need when entering a new market and leading the News Exchange Site to the same success in the UK as it enjoys today in the Nordic region", says Heidi Noemm, Country Manager for Mynewsdesk UK.

“The Press Association is excited to be working with Mynewsdesk and assisting with the distribution of its customer’s press releases to our clients within the UK”, says Jeff Jones, Sales Manager, Business for Press Association.

What is a channel?

A channel allows press releases and news to be published synchronously to a pressroom at Mynewsdesk and to one or more external editorial sites. The material is given increased editorial exposure, as it’s visible in several places at the same time. It’s an easy way to let your material reach key figures.
