    landing a story

    What is the following in red saying?

    He ... told me that Greitens traces his progress on a one-page document, asking himself questions like this, How many donors did I reach out to this week? Am I any closer to landing a story with one of the ten media outlets on my wish list?

    Thank you.

    Not a Teacher.

    "Closer to landing a story" sounds strange but probably means "to be closer to publishing something (an article, a story) in Media (in a magazine, a newspaper or a website).

    I think Johny is on the right lines.

    To me it means 'Am I any nearer to have a story accepted for publication by one of the ten media outlets on my wish list?'
