Better hurry though, because our last #pdxchat sold out quickly.

Join us for an unique opportunity to speak face to face with newsroom managers and on-air personalities across the three most dominant traditional media platforms: TV, print, and radio.


Our great friend, news anchor and emcee of the SoMe Awards,Stephanie Stricklen from KGW TV is the evening’s panel moderator (@StephStricklen)



Our panel will feature:

Frank Mungeam (@Frankwords) , KGW Director of Digital Media.

Rebecca Marshall (@KXLnews),  KXL 101FM News Director and AM drive news anchor

Alexandra Manzano (@alimanzano)  Social Media Editor at the Oregonian.

Here are the takeaways that will come from the discussion:

  • How do you get your message, story pitch, or idea in front of a news organization? 
  • What are the news cycles for the various mediums? They’re vastly different in the age of social media. 
  • When is it best to pitch an idea?  Through what channel: social, email, phone?
  • What should a pitch look like?  What are the biggest mistakes to avoid?

This panel will outline best business practices that anyone can use,  plus,  we will reserve time for your questions.

Bring business cards, your smartphone, or tablet and make media connections to add to your rolodex; digital or otherwise.

Sign up HERE, and do it as soon as you can – seats will fill up quickly!

See you there!
