The Bureau of Public Affairs is pleased to announce the implementation of a new email address for media interview requests with Department of State officials. Effective immediately, all media outlets are asked to email mediarequests@state.gov to request an interview with a State Department official.

The current email address, parmo@state.gov will be deactivated at the end of February. Mediarequests@state.gov will serve the same function and reach the team that handles interview requests on behalf of the Bureau of Public Affairs.
