All are invited to attend this free October 21st webinar
By Deb Shaw, for the SNA Foundation
Noted author and veteran of the digital news industry Ken Doctor will take center stage on October 21st in the next webinar presented by the SNA Foundation. He will present Leading a Newsroom in the Digital News Decade: Newsonomics 2011 and What They Mean to You, and all are invited to attend this free webinar beginning at 2PM Eastern.
Ken Doctor is the author of the book Newsonomics: Twelve New Trends That Will Shape the News You Get and, among other appearances, recently spoke in St. Paul at The Future of News Summit on the topic of ‘Creating a New Model for Regional Journalism.’ In the SNAF October 21st webinar, Doctor will tailor his presentation to the suburban and community newspaper sector and will delve into how the local landscape in the age of hyper-competition has created a new set of strategies for editors and other newsroom leaders.
In this approximate one-hour SNAF webinar, he’ll discuss things like:
- Editors as Content Aggregators: How to Get Bigger while Getting Smaller
- Editors in the Social Conversation: Get Ready for Social Media Optimization
- Editors and Bloggers: Working the Top End of the Blogosphere
- Editors in the Age of Paid Content : What the Wall Street Journal and small newspapers have in common
- Editors in the All-Access Age: the implications of Print + Web + Smartphone + Tablet
This is a don’t-miss opportunity for publishers, editors, interactive managers, and anyone on your staff responsible for moving the newsroom forward in multimedia ways.
