Missing out on selling to the nationals

My colleague Alex Therrien has found out the hard way about selling on a great story.

Picking up the phone paid off for him with a great story about Tammy Page from Worthing who  had the tip of her finger bitten off by a fox.

It was such a great, quirky and topical tale a local agency picked it up and sold it on to the Daily Mail and The Sun.

The Worthing Herald hits the streets on a Wednesday afternoon, despite the Thursday publishing date, so any reporter who wants to make some much-needed cash needs to get on the phone pretty quickly before someone else jumps in.

At least Alex discovered he is not alone as all of us could list great stories we had just been too late to sell but had made it to the nationals.
