Media Relations

Whether you’re a journalist who needs expert comments for a breaking story or a researcher with scientific findings that warrant news coverage, UF Media Relations can help. Our staff of writers, editors, producers, and videographers, most of whom are former journalists, understands how the news business works and can provide a variety of services to meet your needs.

UF Media Relations is the primary media relations office for the University of Florida. The office is responsible for disseminating news about the university and responding to media inquiries. It is the place to send information and seek assistance in dealing with the news media.
