BIG Surprises Coming For ANN's Annual Coverage of OSHKOSH!
The 2010 Rendition of Aviation's Annual Pilgrimage To The
Holy Land Of Oshkosh is nearly upon us, and, if history is any
indicator, it's likely that some of you may have some
news/announcements to make.
The Aero-News Network, the aviation world's DAILY/REAL-TIME news
and information service, is going to be webcasting DAILY from the
grounds of OSHKOSH 2010 with the industry's most
aggressive roster of LIVE Online News, as well as Audio and Video
programming, in the business.
An expert assemblage of ANN's top journalists, including ANN
Editor-In-Chief Jim Campbell (who is chomping at the bit to get a
look at some of the many rumored new products and services
scheduled to be unveiled this year), have been assigned to generate
hundreds of stories about the event, and to work on many more for
future distribution to the hundreds of thousands of people (all
over the world) who read, view or listen to ANN every day, as well
as the many International syndication partners we work with.
This year, ANN is pleased to announce that we will be working
again, in partnership with some of the hardest working names in
aviation to make sure that ANN's expert coverage not only get to
everyone of importance to aviation… but far beyond. We're
taking these steps in order to bring aviation programming to the
widest and most valuable audiences imaginable. Other partnerships,
currently under consideration, may also be in force by then, as
'Want to make a timely impact? As usual; ANN's team of expert
aero-journalists will be covering the Convention from top to
bottom; and we'd like to let you lead the news, with your
announcements in Aero-News on the day your news breaks, rather than
a day late. We're inviting you to send your advance news and
announcements to us; with the date (and the time -- Eastern Time --
if critical) you plan to release the information. Our news
publication system can be set to release stories within a second of
a scheduled release time, so we can honor embargo agreements with
uncanny accuracy. This way, we can help you reach the largest
number of potential readers, as fast as possible.
We would like to invite you to submit your press materials and
news packages to us prior to the event in order to allow our team
to do as much advance preparation as possible and to get a feel for
the stories that will be prominent this year. The sooner we get
such data, the more we can do with it, and the more likely it is
that you'll find yourself featured in a future ANN newscast, Audio
Aero-Cast or Aero-TV Webcast. Submissions are strongly encouraged
by E-mail though postal "snail mail" is acceptable so long as it is
received in our office ASAP. No aviation entity currently gets to
as many people, every day, as ANN is doing now, so we encourage you
to get in contact with us if you think you might have a story idea
or a subject worth covering.
If you have any story ideas or suggestions as to how we might
augment our coverage of this event, please be sure to bring it to
our attention ASAP, so that we make the proper assignments for
ANN's Special Event coverage has been a distinguishing feature
of our organization since DAY ONE. No one does as much with special
coverage of aviation's pivotal events as ANN, and we continue to
set the bar higher each time we tackle an event. It's a tough,
exhausting, brutally intensive process -- and read by hundreds of
thousands of Aero-News readers all over the world.
Of special interest, this year, is the ever-increasing
presence of ANN's tremendously popular Aero-TV programming. As
you may know, ANN introduced the aviation world to a sneak-peek at
Aero-TV at AirVenture 2007 -- and the business hasn't been quite
the same since (and even the copy-cats can't match the quality or
quantity of our work). The very conservative 'beta' version of
Aero-TV resulted in the production of over 20 Video Aero-Casts
during the week long event and the shooting and production of
dozens more and our work at Oshkosh 2008 and 2009 blew the
doors off the business. Since then, OVER 800 amazing programs have
been presented... yet another record unequalled by ANY OTHER
aviation news entity. No one presented as comprehensive or as
expert a slate of NewMedia offerings at Oshkosh as did Aero-News
and Aero-TV... and we're looking to treat OSHKOSH
2010 much the same way.
These Aero-Video products can be played on your laptop or PC as
well as downloaded to a Video iPod, PDA (or other video device) for
viewing at a later time. ANN's Aero-TV Aero-Casts are HIGH-QUALITY
video products shot in HDV (no kidding, see for yourself at http://www.aero-tv.net), and produced by
expert aviation and video journalists. They feature excellent
production values as well as exciting content and insight -- with
an overall quality unmatched in the industry.
So… since ANN will be Aero-Casting LIVE from
OSHKOSH 2010, and if you have news worthy of an
Aero-Cast, we urge you to get in touch, RIGHT AWAY, with ANN's Jim
Campbell, for possible consideration.
