Media tours are a series of TV, radio and online interviews conducted in a single day from a single location. It allows your spokesperson to be interviewed by multiple outlets around the country without the expense of traveling to each market. Interviews are typically booked in 5-10 minute windows.

As an industry leader, Dream Network Media is a trusted producer of broadcast media tours thanks to the veteran professionals we staff. DN Media delivers the technical expertise that makes your media tour network quality. We offer a premium service of this tried and true public relations broadcast technique that embeds your message on television newscasts in targeted markets across the U.S.  using the latest livestreaming technologies.

Our media bookers secure TV programs tailored to your specifications and are involved throughout the entire creative process, offering a hand to craft the perfect pitch for your message in your intended markets.

Media tours produced by us can be booked with our highly-requested spokesperson, the charismatic Dayvee Sutton, or the TV expert of your choice. We can also help you cast the perfect spokesperson for your broadcast campaign from our database of dynamic TV experts.

A media tour will economically and efficiently deliver the kind of high impact, measurable television exposure you demand and your message deserves. 

We offer three versions (3) of media tours that can be customized specifically for your campaign.

A broadcast media tour, typically known as satellite media tours or SMTs,  is a series of back-to-back TV interviews conducted with affiliates, stations, and networks across the country during the course of several hours. Conducted from either a studio or field location, a broadcast media tour is typically produced for  morning and afternoon news programs.

DN Media has now resumed producing full sized media tours for lifestyle and travel brands only. Our tours are typically presented by our highly-requested spokesperson, Dayvee Sutton. We can also host your tour with a spokesperson on your choice.  *Dayvee only accepts one campaign per month and is booked out months in advance. Contact us to inquire about her services.

Imagine an integrated segment presented exactly how you imagined. Instead of going live with your media tour, consider our custom pre-taped video stories.

We transform your marketing message into a dynamic 90 second video story that is filmed in the style that fits within news programs and talk shows. These segments are produced on location (in-the-field) or in a studio with our charismatic host, National lifestyle and travel expert, Dayvee Sutton or the spokesperson of your choice.

After production, the DN Media team distributes this video story to your targeted market outreach nationwide. This strategy executes similar results to a Broadcast Media Tour, but is significantly less expensive. You have more control, and visually present a more polished look for your content.

We start with a strategy meeting, develop a newsworthy script, source and film the broll, video edit then professionally produce the plug-n-play segment. Your segment has the flexibility to look exactly how you want it to by deciding to produce it within a studio or on location. 

DN Media handles the distribution and placement of the final piece to stations. Placements air within one month after being distributed to stations. We deliver downloadable airchecks for every airing.

Traditionally known as a Video News Release (VNR), but our pre-taped packages are newsworthy and beautiful.

If your campaign strategy is to seek media mentions over a period of time for targeted markets, then consider choosing the on demand segment route. This strategy allows for you to package a minimum of three (3) segments over the course of one (1) to three (3) months. This strategy is also useful for brands interested in testing TV campaigns. (This is also the most economical of the media tour opportunities.) 

Additionally, for clients who want the spokesperson to present  segments live in TV studios, this is the media tour selection you should opt for.

Our pitching strategies are effective because

  • Our longstanding relationships with producers nationwide.
  • DN Media memebers have worked inside of newsrooms, so we know what they want and how it works.
  • It’s all about PESO – the Paid-Earned-Shared-Owned model. Your content has more distribution life beyond the live TV segment.
  • Charismatic presenter in Dayvee Sutton, who is the industry's best at merging your marketing points in an entertaining segment.

The Campaign

Princess Cruises Solar Eclipse Campaign

Dream Network Media was approached by Princess Cruises to orchestrate a high-impact media campaign for their Solar Eclipse cruise. Given a challenging timeframe of just two weeks, our goal was not only to produce engaging content but also to ensure its distribution across at least 10 targeted television stations, including one national network. The project involved broadcasting live from a moving ship—an ambitious feat given the complexities of maintaining sufficient bandwidth and technical stability at sea.

Check out the Behind-the-scenes social media post from this tour.

Challenges and Innovative Solutions

From the outset, the project presented multiple technical challenges, including potential issues with power supply and livestreaming capabilities on the ocean. Our team’s deep-seated expertise and foresight led us to prepare meticulously, implementing several innovative solutions:

  • Backup Content Creation: Understanding the risks involved with live broadcasts, we produced a backup news story ready to be dispatched to our network of stations in the event of a live segment failure.
  • Enhanced Livestreaming: To amplify the campaign’s reach and appeal, we introduced a second camera specifically to capture the solar eclipse, providing stations with additional branded live content that was not initially promised.

These preemptive strategies not only safeguarded the campaign against potential pitfalls but also significantly enriched the content’s value to broadcasters.

Results and Impact

  • The campaign exceeded all expectations:

    • Expanded Coverage: Originally tasked to book 10 stations, including one national network. Our campaign ultimately secured three (3) national shows, and coverage on 15 additional stations who took the live stream.

    • Adaptability to Challenges: For stations unable to broadcast live, we supplied a packaged segment before the tour that they could seamlessly integrate into their programming, thereby maintaining engagement and ensuring widespread coverage.
