I am from South Africa and have no contacts but a great product. Happy to have a call to talk about it on Clarity and expect introductions if you like my website and think it is newsworthy.
Use HARO (Help A Reporter Out) and sign up for free so you can see the daily offers for reporters looking for people to interview, then respond to the targeted topics you are interested in being interviewed for as an expert.
I can help you with contact details of popular journalist across US if that helps. Let me know if interested.
I'd start by getting really clear about why you want to reach them. These folks are in high demand so you have to hook them with something really compelling in order to get their attention.
Follow their work, retweet it, comment on it and let them know you're adding value for them. Then you can reach out with a bit of a warmer connection.
I'm not a PR person specifically, but I'd be happy to take a call with you to talk more about your strategy for reaching out to media.
