News Media Guidelines Media Information

The College Communications office is the point of contact with the media. This includes all media inquiries, the preparation and distribution of all college news releases and announcements (except for athletics), pitching story ideas/media coverage, and emergency notifications.

For the Media

The College Communications Office is the primary point of contact for the media. Please contact either College Communications Director Logan Fowler at 208-792-2200 or Public Information Specialist Bert Sahlberg at 208-792-2197 with any inquiries. Enquiries can also be sent to the shared office email account Local media outlets will receive campus parking passes prior to the school year along with parking instructions. The College Communications Office is aware of media deadlines and will work diligently with all media to make sure campus personnel and students respond to their requests once the media has contacted the Communications Office with their request.


Television and radio personnel are asked to contact the College Communications office to receive permission to (1) do a live broadcast from the college campus (2) to enter classrooms, laboratories, or similar facilities, and (3) to enter any college-owned residence halls. This is to ensure there is no interference with college classes or activities, and also to protect students at their residence. Permission is also needed to film or shoot pictures inside most campus buildings.


Because LCSC is a state institution and supported by taxpayer dollars, the campus cannot be used to promote political candidates/agendas or products. All commercial and non-news filming/photography must receive approval in advance from the College Communications office.


If there is a campus emergency, the media will be directed to a designated area of campus and must wear a media ID badge so they are easily identified. The point of contact will still be the College Communication office and access to certain areas of campus may be limited for safety or security reasons.
