I’m scheduled to appear on what promises to be two lively panels next month at the National Association of Broadcasters/Radio Television News Directors Association convention in Las Vegas.

On Wednesday, April 20th, I’ll be part of a 9:30am RTNDA Super Session called “Are We Becoming Irrelevant” with Jeff Jarvis. This one should be a lot of fun.

More citizen journalists join the blogosphere every day, empowering news consumers to get the information they want, when they want it, from sources with whom they identify, in a way they can participate in the process. Are traditional electronic journalists up to the challenge of competing in this blog eat blog world? Leave this session with a better understanding of weblogs and ideas for securing your newsroom’s position in the evolving electronic journalism pecking order.
On Friday, April 22nd, I’ll be on a 9:00am panel called “Reinventing the Local TV Station: Ground-Breaking Ideas from Innovative Thinkers” with Vin Crosbie of Digital Deliverance and Jerry Condra of State University of New York at Oswego. This panel is a part of the Broadcast Education Association (BEA) annual conference, which is in conjunction with NAB. I enjoy speaking with broadcast educators, although I think they need to be teaching something else. I’ll get a chance to say that next month.

It’s been a few years since I’ve been to RTNDA, and I’m looking forward to renewing old acquaintances. If you’re going, make sure to look me up, or drop me a line, so we can hook up somewhere. I hope to see a lot of friendly faces in the audience, especially Wednesday. Of course, the topic is such that I might be booed.

And so it goes…


  1. I’m looking forward to that Friday panel, Terry. See you there!
