Media Relations

The Media Relations Office (MRO) assists members of the news media on matters pertaining to Fort Knox, helping to ensure the American public has the information needed to understand the installation’s missions, roles and activities. The MRO also works with the entertainment (e.g., film, television, video) and publishing (e.g., books, magazines) industries as well.

All news media representatives who wish to enter Fort Knox on official business and/or to cover events on Fort Knox must first coordinate with and request permission through the Public Affairs Office at (502) 624-3051. News media also must be escorted by a member of the Public Affairs Office. Otherwise, news media representatives will be refused entry to Fort Knox. Members of the news media who have a personal affiliation with the military (e.g., family member of a service member) must follow the aforementioned procedures when on official business and/or wishing to cover events on Fort Knox. Due to the limited number of public affairs staff to provide escort, media are asked to make their requests as far in advance as possible.
