    Hi, I am writing in regards to Strongest Boy-world record set by Nicholas Ortiz.
     We would love to fly Nicholas and his family to NYC to show off his strength on TODAY, America's #1 morning show. Wondering what would be the best way to reach out to Ortiz family? Thanks!

       I'm hoping to try and get hold of Elliot Nicholls for an interview about his texting record on Kiwi fm. Are you able to pass on his details to me? Or pass my details to him? This would be for a 5minute phone interview, hopefully within the next few days. thanks

     My name is Rasheed Oluwa and I'm a reporter with the Poughkeepsie Journal. The reason I'm writing is that I saw the article on the Web site about Jesse Eldrid, who broke the world record for growing the largest Amaranth plant. I wanted to get in touch with him for a possible story.    Thanx.

   I work for Tiger Aspect (an IMG Media Company), which is one of the leading independent TV companies in the UK. We are currently in the process of developing a show called ‘Superkids’ which is about the worlds greatest sporting prodigies.
   We are currently conducting a worldwide search across every sport with the view to creating a series which will be syndicated around the world. The premise of the show is to showcase the talents of kids under the age of 13.
   We are only looking for the best of the best, kids who have amazing potential and are likely to be the next sports superstar.     
   As well as highlighting the talents of our youngsters, we will also investigate the factors behind their success and discuss whether it is due to nature or nurture. I am contacting you to investigate world records which have been set by youngsters and are vaguely sports orientated. I have been on your website to see what I can find.
     So far I have come across the youngest relay team to swim the English Channel and the Strongest Boy-world record set by Nicholas Ortiz. These are definitely kids we would like to look at further. I especially would like to find out more information about Nicholas and the record he has set.
    Are there any other ‘youngest’ records that you feel might be of interest? If you are able to provide me with any information I would be most grateful. Please feel free to contact me with any queries or question that you may have. In the meantime I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for your time. Kind regards

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    I am writing from award-winning documentary makers, Bellwether Media, in the UK. We have read with interest about world record holder, Mr Aurel Raileanu, a ‘human magnet’ in Romania. We are very interested in the possibility of producing a documentary on Mr Raileanu and wonder if you would be able to put us in contact with him.
    I am happy to call you to discuss further if you could let me know a convenient time and number to call.
    Warm Regards

   Good morning I'm contacting you from the BBC in Cambridge as we're very keen to speak to someone from the Academy regarding the longest bridge made from plastic bottles which is based in Ely in Cambridgeshire. If anyone is able to contact me I can be reached on +[...]. We would like to speak to someone on our radio breakfast show tomorrow morning at around 0720 GMT. I realise this would be early but it would give us a perfect opportunity to take a different angle on this story.
    Kind regards
