Online news

I got a call Wednesday from the managing editor (though I didn’t realize his title when I was on the phone with him) of the Commercial Appeal in Memphis, asking me to serve on a panel later this month at an Online News Association workshop in Nashville. I will be one of the panelists for the 2:30 p.m. session entitled “The Evolving Newsroom.” I don’t know exactly whom the other panelists are going to be, but one will be from a larger metro paper and the other will be from a TV station. Hopefully, they’ll update the web page with all of our names once everyone is confirmed.

Anyway, Scott Sines from the Commercial Appeal was quite complimentary of our web site.
