Fort McCoy newspaper, TV6

accept community submissions

Fort McCoy organizations and community members can submit materials for consideration for inclusion in The Real McCoy and Command Information Channel TV6.

The Real McCoy is the installation's community newspaper. Suggestions about future articles and photographs and submissions are welcome. Articles must be written for the internal Fort McCoy audience, which includes military members, Family members, civilian employees, and retirees. PAO staff reserves the right to verify the clearance of stories/photos; determine suitability for publication; and to edit, rewrite, or reformat all submissions for grammar, spelling, length, style, and conformance to standard journalistic guidelines and Army regulations.

All photos must have captions that include names of the individuals photographed (unless the photo has more than five people in it), the date and location of the photographed event, a description of what is happening in the photograph, and the name of the photographer.

The Real McCoy is published the second and fourth Fridays of the month, excluding December. Submission deadlines are typically nine days before publication; federal holidays may affect submission deadlines. Deadline exceptions may be made, with advance coordination, for events that occur between the submission deadline and publication date. Contact the Public Affairs Office for details.

Programming and content for command channel TV6 is updated on weeks The Real McCoy is not published, typically the first; third; and, if applicable, fifth Fridays of the month.

Videos should be submitted nine days before an update to allow time for processing. Slides for the Community Bulletin Board should be submitted three days before an update to allow time for review and reformatting. Federal holidays may affect submission deadlines. Before submitting items for The Real McCoy or the command channel, call the Public Affairs Office at 608-388-4128/2769. All submissions must include the name of the writer and/or photographer and contact information.
