Useful for students wanting to build their specialist or general knowledge: 

A new organisation has been set up to help the media develop its understanding of religion. 

The Religion Media Centre offers information, contacts and comments on issues being covered by national media outlets. It says it has "no editorial line nor does it promote any one religion, or religious belief in general".

If you have not come across them yet, the Science Media Centre and the Education Media Centre are similar organisations for those sectors and can be helpful in suggesting interviewees and providing background information.
