Web-scraping of Company Press Releases - open to bidding

I am looking for two web-scraping codes, written in excel.

i) Collect all available historical press releases

I am looking for a web-scraping code to collect the historical press-releases from around 40 different company websites.

I would like the press releases downloaded into an excel spreadsheet, using the column headings below.

I would like the code to be written clearly for each company, so I can alter the company website address etc at a later date if required.

ii) Collect last month’s press releases

I would like a separate web-scraping code to capture all the press releases between two dates that I am able to change (say, 1 January 2017 to 30 April 2017).

This would then be downloaded into a separate tab of the same spreadsheet, under the same format.

Excel file format

The excel file should be structured under the following column headings:



>Press Release Hyperlink

>Press Release Title

>Press Release body (all the text)

Company population

For both codes, I would like the population of companies to include the following list. Each organises its historical contracts in a separate way, but rarely change.
