How to get copies of tv news clips?
We get this question a lot, so we’re here to help!
If you need to get a copy of a TV news clip, there are a few ways to do it.
You might try contacting the TV station directly, but sometimes it’s difficult to get in touch with the right person at the station and even more difficult to get them to send you the clip. You might also try looking on their website, but the odds are good that the news clip you need will not be available or the link may be expired.
The second way is to contact a news clipping service. These are companies that specialize in finding and delivering copies of news clips from TV news shows. If you don’t want to deal with individual TV stations or don’t know which station(s) aired a particular clip, this might be the easiest option for you. News clipping services usually charge a small fee per month for unlimited access to their archives, so if you think you’ll need more than just one clip, it can end up being more cost-effective than trying to get each clip from the station directly.
Your best bet is often to use a news clipping service like Metro Monitor. These services can help you locate and obtain any TV news clip you need quickly and easily, so you don’t have to spend hours trying to track it down yourself.
News clipping services can also give you access to information about the news clip including station name, date and time broadcasted, duration, estimated audience, and estimated publicity value of your news coverage.
If you ever need help tracking down a permanent copy of a news clip, please contact our team at Metro Monitor. We will get the clip you need delivered to you right away at an affordable rate.
