where to get press releases?
January 9, 2006 5:49 AM   Subscribe

how or where does one sign up to receive UK press releases? Are there centralized sources or do the releasing parties pick who to send news to?

we are looking to add a related news section to a nascent website and would prefer not to repost news scraped from other online sources but have the ability to report appropriately themed/related subject matter news as it is released. this would only be news gathered that is relevant to the subject matter of the site.

aside from the simple answer to the first question does anyone have anything to share with regard the standards and guidelines one should follow when starting a news site?

Also Waymaker and Pressbox used to have free wire feeds.

Starting a news site is different to adding a related news ticker, but either way the BBC will eat yr lunch. It and Guardian Unlimited at the Intel/Microsoft of the UK online news world.
