On Thursday, June 14, I’ll be speaking on a panel at the Hugh O’Brian Youth (HOBY) Leadership Seminar.
The panel will be “Media and Communications: The Future of the Newspaper, E-Media, and Local News.” The other speakers will include Brian Kostek, Producer, Y108, and John Stevens of the (Washington) Observer-Reporter.
I’ve been invited to focus on blogging, as I was last year. But I’ve got a lot more to talk about this year, what with a few months’ experience in publishing a local news site, ButlerToday. I found last year’s panel discussion quite interesting — I think I learned as much as the audience did. With luck this year will be just as useful for everyone.
HOBY is a national youth leadership development program founded in 1958 by actor Hugh O’Brian. The program and this seminar are intended for pre-registered high school students — for more information please visit the HOBY website.
