Really, the embargo is silly in this case (and I say that having worked as a journalist): embargo the information until the press conference, and send it out to the papers earlier with that embargo so no-one can post it ahead of the actual announcement, but they can have the pages ready to go when the journalist at the event gives the newsdesk OK (inthe same way that political speeches are distributed early, and the correspondent writes their piece ahead of time, but then updates them from the spot to report any ad-libs, fluffs or secret additions), but embargoing it for eight hours after the announcement... that's running things as if it was still the early 1990s and the newspaper first editions were the only game in town..
