Sell your story to news outlets just like this contact did:

An employee working on Vice President Kamala Harris’ Inaguaration bus took multiple behind-the-scene photos while working. These photos provided an inside look at where the VP herself got her hair and makeup done that evening. After working with Talk to the Press, his photos were published on multiple international news sites.

After receiving the tip, Talk to the Press took care of the rest. We write, review, and ensure maximum publication.

This inside scoop on Kamala’s hang out spot landed on multiple mainstream outlets. The client then received payment from every one of the publications.


After this contributor took the photos, he decided to share his experience with the world.

After finding Talk to the Press he contacted the team immediately by filling out this online form. One of our journalists then immediately called for an interview.

You can share your story now by simply answering a few questions here.


The reporter then called our contact at The Daily Mail to see if they were interested in publishing the story. After seeing the packaged piece, The Daily Mail bought the exclusive rights to the story.

Within a few days, the story was published online.

After The Daily Mail‘s 24-hour exclusivity period had ended, the contributor received 50% of the money made on the story. 

Talk to the Press provides a full list of all of its major international media companies for you to see. Our objective at Talk to the Press is to help our tipsters receive as much publicity and money as possible. And since we couldn’t do our jobs without your contribution our pay is the same. Whatever you make, we make.

We promise to land you the top deal available. We always act as the middle man between you and the publication. That way you can choose to remain anonymous if you so, please.


The quickest way to sell your story to the press is by contacting Talk to the Press!

You will find a transfer tool that will let you send your videos and photos at the bottom of this page. Your assests will then go straight to our team for review.
