What is a press release?

A press release is a short, compelling news story written by a company's public relations person and sent to targeted members of the media. The goal of a press release is to pique the interest of a journalist or publication. The press release should contain all the essential information (who? what? where? when? how? and most importantly why?) for the journalist to easily produce their own story. A press release should read like a news story, written in third-person, citing quotes and sources and containing standard press release information.
