7 News ad value for the two-week period was more than $2.4 million Media CoverageNews ad value for the two-week period was more than $2.4 millionLt. Blue = Television (42%)Green = Cable/Satellite program (13%)Pink = Wire Service (10%)Orange = Newspaper (9%)Purple = Online, news & business (8%)Yellow = Cable/Satellite network (6%)2009 Data gathered in-house using VOCUS and TV Eyes. Does not reflect total news buy value…as not all capture. The $2.4 Million of FREE, positive, coverage is actually MUCH more.The coverage area also does not include our international reach. The foreign media hits were not able to be captured given our limited ability at the Region. But this is a good SNAPSHOT.Press coverage wasn’t just limited to northeastern media markets. News circulation that we could track amounted to more than 29 million people
8 Embark Program In 2010: Emarks included RO2N, RO1N and POS. Invitation letters and embark forms mailed to 250 individuals.Processed over 150 forms from VIP/media.Processed NROTC, Sea Cadets & USMC Poolee – 190+ nominees.Developed launch plan - working with ESG-2 Air Ops.Embarked 33 media reps; including 18 members of the Foreign Press Center.Some Key Influencers/targets include: ESPN Executives (to build on that relationship for future NY events and Fleet Weeks); Foreign Press Center media; work with JAG Corps to support targeted recruiting efforts with law students in NYC; SONY productions; other local and national media; some Navy League DV’s; some CEO’s. We target CEO’s from Crain’s New York Business for invites - not just to embark, but to host their employees for private DV tours as well.

HOWEVER, Public Affairs has established outreach and comrel initiatives with NY Blood Center, Boys & Girls Clubs (each ship had a Flag in 2009); worked with schools on a poster contest in 2010 that we will build on, and more. Great teamwork with NRD NY, USMC and USCG. Navy Band is critical/very visible and absolute pleasure to work with.Would like to see more US Navy Air demo’s/statics in – and partner more with Marine Corps on aviation outreach.

14 ONR Work cooperatively with ONR on static displays and news peg Displays/exhibits on the pier- ION Tiger UAV, REMUS, Sea Stalker, SEA PERCH, and Rope Ascender DemoSpace can be limiting and logistically challenging on the ship, but ONR is key component to the static displays and showcasing some of our current, and FURTURE technologies.
15 SOE Managed by Public Affairs 2010 supported over 270 events Weekly Drumbeat Meeting to review – ThursdayWork closely with JAG – ethics review; Strike Group on approval and executionSCHEDULE OF EVENTS – Some may say this is NOT a key Public Affairs Function. We are a victim of our success. However, PA is intimately aware of EVERY single event and work VERY closely with JAG and the Strike Group on EVERY one. This is tedious and a time consuming task….but it helps when knowing what to cover, when to cover, how to cover, what’s important and keeps PAO finger on the pulse of entire event…cradle to grave for entire program.
16 Manning Totally integrated Navy, Marine Corps & Coast Guard Team Set up in five different locations:Manhattan Command CenterManhattan MediaStaten Island Command CenterManhattan ToursInternal (located opposite end of Command Center)Total of 98 PAOs to execute FWNY 2010, plus reach back support at CNRMAImpressive team of professionals in multiple locations 98 may sound like an awful lot of resources…it is. But is necessary to execute the Navy’s largest community relations/community outreach program in a geographically dispersed location.80=% of FWNY IS Public Affairs
