Press Release Announcement Examples

We posted this article on press release announcement examples because we knew it would help you if you had examples of the various styles of announcements that are regularly being made. 

Hopefully, one of the examples on this page is similar to what you are doing. 

This article contains book release announcements, event announcements, business networking announcements, business startup announcements, new podcast announcements, new membership website announcements and more.

There are many other types of press releases, such as new-hire press releases, new product press release announcements, research and scientific announcements, and announcements about awards.

Side Hustle Professionals will update this content regularly to include other Press Release Announcement Examples as we have them. 

Currently, on the right are five examples separated into four sections (2 for one author) with complete press releases for download to help you design your own press release.

This article also needs to mention that when a press release is handled by correctly,  it is not only released to the media but sent out as a Tweet and posted on LinkedIn and Facebook. And these links are important, as they provide the individual or business that is making the release with the ability to retweet and share as a link.

How to Write a Press Release

Before getting into details, when you think of How to Write a Press Release, this step-by-step process will help:

  1. Find a newsworthy angle.
  2. Write an attention-grabbing headline.
  3. Write your opening sentence (aka, lede)
  4. Craft four to seven strong body paragraphs with supporting details.
  5. Add quotes.
  6. Include contact information.

There is one thing you cannot do in a press release; sell. That means that hype and excitement have no place in press releases.

Instead, write as if you were a journalist talking about a business, brand or other styles of press releases mentioned above.

This is thought because, very often, you are writing about something you created. It is exciting to you, and you want to promote it, but those types of content do not get reposted on media websites!

When you read some of the examples by clicking the links on this page, you will see that hype and excitement are left on the writer’s cloud account or laptop hard drive. They are not included in a press release.

Here are examples of press releases that are non-hype that did get picked up by affiliated and network media:

  1. $2.5M gift to Smith School of Business to help future leaders navigate environmental, social, and governance issues
  2. Universities Canada welcomes interim president Philip Landon to lead national association.
  3. The Prime Minister announces the appointment of senators

As you can see from a quick glance, these are well-written but do not include hype. And that is the way yours should be.

Think ANNOUNCEMENT, not hype or sales jargon. Keep the benefits to a minimum and the facts to a maximum.

We have a page on this site that is entitled; A PRESS RELEASE CAN BE AN UNFAIR  ADVANTAGE IN THE MARKETPLACE, which is definitely worth the read.

Each press release can include the body of the announcement, hyperlinks, images, media contact info and headlines for the press release and tweets. And it is worth the time to get all of these things reading correctly and making them appealing.

I hope that these few spotlights we have provided as Press Release Announcement Examples are enough to get you started with your project. However, if you do not have time to write a press release but have something to announce, let us write it for you.

We have several writers that moonlight (meaning have a side hustle) as writers for blogs, press releases and white papers. And we would be glad to handle that for you.

In addition, we handle press release distribution.  All of the examples on this page, other than the list of three above, were handled by us, and all but one was written by us, with the last being merely distributed by us (if you do not count writing the Tweet headline and other minor things).

If you want more information about press releases, complete the form below, and we will send you all costs associated with press release distribution. You can also read our privacy policy here to discover that we do not sell or share anyone’s personal information.
