I recently found out that I know someone who is married to one of the local news anchors (yeah, she kept her maiden name so I didn't connect the dots) I have been talking to her about celiac through email, she thinks her daughter might have it, and I was wondering if the local news might do a story on it.... I think I might be rude if I ask or something.....

so, what's the professional non-using my friend's connections way to get the news to do a story?

'jokingly' ask, "so what would I have to do to get you to ask your spouse about his/her show doing a bit on celiac?"

Ditto, couldn't hurt, if you are good friends.

Say, "Since you are so interested in this especially since your child may have it, why don't you have your hubby do a news story on it? There might be others out there who'd like to hear more about it."

As long as you don't make it all about you, it shouldn't sound like you're using her, rather trying to help others.

As long as you don't make it a 15-minutes of fame, I get to be on TV thing, I'm sure she wouldn't mind at all. I bet they're always looking for new and interesting stories to do.
