Most journalists say they like to be pitched story ideas early in the week and in the morning, according to recent research from Business Wire.

The report was based on data from a survey of 600+ members of the media living in 40+ countries. Most of the journalists polled reside in North America and the United Kingdom. Respondents work across various verticals, including B2B/trade news, business/finance news, local/national news, lifestyle/entertainment news, and consumer products/services news.

Some 61% of journalists say morning is the best time to receive pitches, 30% say afternoon is best, and 9% say evening.

Less-experienced journalists (those working in the field for less than five years) and Generation Z journalists prefer to be pitched in the afternoon.
