A couple of months ago I wrote a blog piece puncturing the myth of the shrinking EU press corps. Far from dwindling, I showed how the number of correspondents in Brussels has risen constantly over the last four decades – and continues to grow despite the crisis. According to the latest official figures, there were 1022 journalists accredited to the European Commission in September 2013. However, Lorenzo Consoli, the former president of the Foreign Press Association in Brussels, recently informed me this figure had jumped to 1095 by the end of 2013.

The Brussels press corps is the biggest in the world, right? Wrong. Washington D.C. and London are far larger.

Surely this shows that journalist numbers in Brussels are in constant decline, right? Again wrong. Data shows numbers have been fairly constant over the past decade.

There is a lot of misinformation about the Brussels press corps, which can lead to misunderstandings about how to deal with the 1,000 or so influential correspondents based in the EU capital. In our next open course on February 20 we will analyse previously unpublished data to look at how the press corps has changed over the last 20 years, the challenges reporters face covering the EU and how this affects the way you do business with Brussels-based journalists.

Our aim is to make you more comfortable dealing with EU reporters. So we will practice how to pitch stories and give you insider tips on the most influential outlets in the Brussels media bubble and how to approach them.
