USA Masters Track and Field

MEDIA SUBCOMMITTEE

PURPOSE
To develop and enhance television, radio, print, and Internet coverage of masters track and field as an organizing tool to build excitement, membership, and sponsorship for the sport around the mission of lifetime fitness and health through masters track and field training and competition.

ABOUT THIS SUBCOMMITTEE
The Media Committee has developed an effective process, with enormous help by Ken Stone, Pete Taylor, the other media committee members, the Games Committee, the LOC's and USATF's national staff (thanks especially Tom Surber), to build a press release for the indoor and outdoor national championships featuring current outdoor and indoor world champions, Olympians, other stars, people with interesting life stories, and local athletes. In addition, we have a system and form for athletes who participate in the national meets to call their home town press and build coverage there as well, with our support. Thanks to all who helped develop the basis of the terrific coverage for another year, coverage which hopefully inspires many others to join masters track and field as athletes and organizers.
