Hudson’s Washington News Media Contacts Directory provides immediate access to over 4,000 need-to-know contacts within Washington’s newspapers, syndicates, radio contacts, magazines, and newsletters, and is the most detailed, comprehensive, and current reference source available for media contacts in the D.C. Metro Area.

Within the last few years, the newspaper industry has been hard hit, with many newspapers downsizing, changing ownership, and going out of business. At the same time, publications are reducing their Washington correspondent staffing levels. With its up-to-date and comprehensive coverage of D.C. news media, this edition of Hudson's Washington News Media Contacts Directory reflects the most current changes to the market place and staffing reassignments.

This 2016 edition covers over 3,000 news organizations and their holdings (defined mostly as publications or media stations owned or managed by the parent listing), as well as over 4,000 key media contacts, many with personnel contact information. Users will find seven major chapters and 20 subcategories:

News Services: This chapter is divided into sections for General News, Specialized News, Photo Services, and City Wires.
Newspapers with D.C. Bureaus: This chapter includes newspapers that are headquartered elsewhere, but have news bureaus in D.C. These listings are divided into sections for General News and Specialized News.
Newspapers Headquartered in the D.C. Metro Area: Divided into sections for General News and Specialized News, these listings are headquartered in D.C. proper or nearby in Maryland or Virginia.
Foreign News: This chapter includes sections for both News Services and Newspapers and lists each entry’s country/city of origin. All listings in this chapter are based in other countries but maintain a news bureau in the D.C. Metro Area.
Syndicates & Columnists: This chapter lists major syndicates whose columnists operate primarily in the D.C. Metro Area.
Radio & TV Stations: This chapter is divided into sections for Guest Programs, Stations Headquartered in the D.C. Metro Area, Stations Headquartered Elsewhere with Bureaus in D.C., and Foreign Stations with Bureaus in D.C.
Magazines & Periodicals: This chapter lists major magazine and periodical publications whose columnists operate primarily in the D.C. Metro Area.

A detailed Table of Contents and a User’s Guide help users navigate the 20 sub-categories included in the directory. Additionally, five indexes assist users in locating the exact place or person they are looking for:

Entry Name Index: An alphabetical listing of all media listings.
Geographic Index/Foreign Media: A country/city guide to all foreign media sources with a presence in D.C.
Personnel Index: An alphabetical listing of all key media contacts.
Magazine Subject Index: Includes 75 categories from Advertising to Urban Affairs.
