Media EngagementMedia Engagement provides a method of communication with the public through the media. Dealing with the media requires the highest level of professional competence and sophistication. The public information responsibility is focused primarily on the accurate and timely dissemination of information to local area and national news media about the people, actions, and activities of the Marine Corps. This function involves daily contact with representatives of the civilian print and electronic news media. Although timely reporting is vital to a successful relationship with the civilian media, credibility is equally essential to a professional and enduring relationship. Requests for information in response to media queries must be responded to quickly, accurately, and candidly.

The Marine Corps Installations West - Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton Media Engagement Office facilitates media queries and escorts media aboard Camp Pendleton for all Marine Corps Base related activities or events. Various tenant commands aboard the Base field queries and escort media concerning their specific commands.
