Release: April 6, 2001
NOTE TO EDITORS
The release date for information about the 2001-2002 season at the University
of Iowa Hancher Auditorium will be Thursday, April 19. That is the date that
ads detailing the season will begin to appear, and that information about
the season will be posted on our website.
Unlike past years, Hancher is mailing its brochures to its entire mailing
list simultaneously rather than mailing to contributors in advance, so brochures
will not be in anyones hands a week before the release date. All the
brochures will be mailed April 17, so April 18 is the first possible date
that anyone will receive the brochure in the mail, and most addressees will
receive their brochures after that date.
As in past years, we will provide copy and photos in advance to media outlets
that guarantee they will not broadcast or publish the information before the
release date -- April 19. Advance interviews will also be available to media
who make that guarantee.
Copy and photos will be ready for e-mail distribution on April 12 -- one
week before the release date. Requests for advance copy and photos will be
honored up until the general release date.
Let us know as soon as possible if you would like to receive copy and photos
in advance, and if you would like to arrange an interview with Wally Chappell,
the director of Hancher, about his choices for the season.
The news release and photos will be distributed generally on April 19 through
the normal distribution process.
