It's in your best interest to be responsive to requests from reporters. If a reporter needs information from you but isn't going to mention you or your company in the article, don't hem and haw.

Do the reporter-and yourself-a favor by getting the information to her as soon as possible. The easier you can make a reporter's job, the more she'll want to deal with you. And someday, that reporter just might find a way to squeeze your name into a story.
