As may be expected a format that is meant to be read out loud will look very different from one that is meant to be read. Unfortunately it is not always easy to gain access to a sample press release format for these media outlets. That said one can always try calling the station and see if someone can help out. Regardless of where your press release is going to appear it needs to be formatted properly. If you look at a sample press release format you may be fooled into thinking that the structure is universal. Perhaps it can be said that the parts of a press release are a bit like car parts.
A sample should only be used as a guide for you to understand the best way to write the letter the actual words themselves should come from the heart. When writing a condolence letter you will use a basic formal letter format but you do not want it to seem too formal so look for a format that is semi-formal and seems to be almost personal but not quite. You will want to spend the first paragraph acknowledging the persons loss this is foremost on their mind and it should be on yours as well. The second part of the letter should be talking about the deceased if you knew him you can share what your relationship with him was your loss at his absence and what he meant to you misery truly does love company and commiserating with the family can help them not feel quite so alone.
If a student can learn how to format his essay independently he will save a handsome amount of money that can be spent on future necessities. In addition independent knowledge of how to format an essay will prevent a student from losing time with his campus writing center or writing tutor. The student may be part of the local debate team in an honor club ensemble or student organization and juggles his time amidst many things. Any amount of time that the student can save will benefit him or her in the long run. Perhaps the extra time can be spent preparing for midterms and finals major class projects or perhaps time with family and friends---activities that in some sense are just as important as academic responsibilities.
