NEW YORK, NY, August 27, 2013

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center today unveiled a new pressroom for journalists with enhanced features such as embargoed content for registered users and “trending topics” – a continually updated listing of story ideas and available experts to comment on the latest health news headlines.

In addition to the new pressroom, Memorial Sloan Kettering also announced the availability of an on-site broadcast studio equipped with VideoLink’s ReadyCam® system, capable of transmitting high-quality HD video instantly to any news network around the world.

“The rapid, 24/7 pace at which our current news is delivered requires not only immediate accessibility on breaking news, but having a readily available network of experts to provide thought leadership on a wide range of cancer-related topics,” said Christine Hickey, Director of Communications at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. “We are excited to have the capability to offer our expertise and analysis more quickly and to a wider audience.”

Located at Memorial Sloan Kettering’s main campus in Manhattan, the new broadcast studio will allow Memorial Sloan Kettering’s vast network of physicians and scientists to comment on the latest medical breakthroughs as well as share important institutional research.
