Best Bets to Get Featured on BizWireTV

By Vilan Trub, Marketing

BizWireTV is a sleek digital news show that reaches audiences around the globe. For a brand looking to amplify their latest announcement, there is no doubt that being featured on the program creates greater access to wider audiences, making a strong visual impression on potential clients and customers.

Here are some great tips from Executive Producer Amy Feller that will increase the chances of your news release being featured on BizWireTV:

Write a compelling headline

Headlines don’t just attract readers, they entice viewers as well. A succinct and intriguing headline is the perfect lead-in to a digital news story, sucking in viewers’ attentions. It’s not by accident that local televised news broadcasts offer a taste of the stories coming after a commercial break, what can be considered a form of a headline. A great headline should offer enough details to allow the viewer to know that the story is relevant to them, but at the same time create mystery and offer the opportunity of enlightenment. A great headline that garners interest from readers will also garner the interest of BizWireTV’s staff and enhance the chance of the story being featured in the show.    

Include HD video files that help tell your story

We live in the multimedia age and today’s news releases have the capability to take full advantage. Sending out a smart news release, featuring a video, makes it easier for the featured news to travel around today’s most popular platforms, all quickly transforming into multimedia platforms. Scroll down a Facebook page, or Twitter and see how much content is visual. Today’s tech is designed to be smart, so a news release should be as well. Visual news highly increases a brands chances of landing on a visual news show.   

Include large hi-rez images

For the same reasons that videos are an important asset to the news release, hi-resolution images are as well. It’s not enough to just tell audiences your story, you need to show them who the story is coming from. When audiences see the people behind the stories or see the products being described, they have a stronger connection and interest to the brand issuing the news. These are vital aspects to a news broadcast and BizWireTV looks for these assets in the news sourcing each episode. 

Share your news socially

A core component of BizWireTV is news-related data analysis powered by Business Wire’s NewsTrak reports and NUVI social media tracking. Sharing your story on social platforms increases its chances of landing on the top 5 trending stories of the week.   

Include your official logo 

There is no more important branding than a logo. It’s how the public recognizes a brand and that’s why BizWireTV looks for news releases that include official logos. Logos are just as important for startups and other new companies as they are for more established corporations because the logo will become how audiences will come to recognize the brand.    

What kind of stories does BizWireTV look for?

  • Launch news of new product and services 
  • "firsts" in whatever industry you're in
  • Startups, Kickstarter/Indiegogo campaigns/young companies with fresh VC funding
  • Entertainment stories

Sponsored Headlines

BizWireTV features a Sponsored Headlines segment allowing clients the opportunity to have their story featured in the show.

BizWireTV Sponsored Headlines include:

  • An on-air read of a client’s headline within the show by host, Jordyn Rolling 
  • Listing on-screen via a text crawl and release screen grab
  • Inclusion in the episode’s National news release
  • Promotion across Business Wire social channels (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram)

Al Roker Visits Business Wire for BizWireTV Event

By Vilan Trub, Marketing

BizWireTV was born when Business Wire partnered with Al Roker Entertainment to create a video news show with stories sourced from announcements crossing the newswire’s patented distribution network. Two years later and the show is a huge success with millions of views. To celebrate, Business Wire put together an event giving some of today’s leading communicators the chance to meet and learn from Al Roker as BizWireTV host Jordyn Rolling led a livestreamed fireside chat.  

You can view a replay of the livestream here

Al Roker touched upon many subjects, starting by explaining that he initially had no intention of a career in television. It was during college while taking a class on television performance, Roker joked, that he was told by a professor that he has a face for radio. A class he shared with fellow icon, Jerry Seinfeld. He did, however, land his first job as a weatherman at the time in Syracuse after submitting a tape.

Jordyn Rolling, host of BizWireTVAl then touched upon an event that entered him into the record books, Rokerthon. After hearing about a Norwegian woman who set the world record for longest continues weather cast, the unimpressed Roker joked that he could top the tally with ease. Following the taping of the live episode, his crew inquired as to when the record breaking event would take place. Al, forgetting his braggadocios claim, had gotten himself into a corner and took the challenge head on. The result was a 36 hour live marathon, a precursor, he points out himself, to the live streaming culture prevalent today. In usual Al Roker fashion, he joked that when a microphone was accidently left on during a restroom break, the world got to hear him actually “live streaming.”


While most attendees admitted to starting their days at 6 or 7 in the morning, Al admitted that his duties force him to rise at 4am. He’s hard working and ambitious and with Al Roker Entertainment and Al Roker Lab he’s creating content seen around the world. His goals, however, are inspiring in their humbleness. “I don’t want to change the world,” Al said wholeheartedly, “I just don’t want people to feel like they’ve wasted their time.”     

Partnering with Business Wire gives Al Roker a unique opportunity to create factual, news driven content. The conversation turned to the current trend of fake news, but Roker wasn’t distraught, instead having faith that majority of people can identify the veracity of the news they’re consuming. He then explained what it was about the newswire that piqued his interest, “When people see news from Business Wire, they know they can trust it.”

New episodes of BizWireTV are available Thursday’s on BizWireTV.com with apps available for iOS and Android devices.
