San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 17, 2006
Leading podcast pioneers currently helping advertisers connect with audiences are confirmed to appear on a panel at ad:tech San Francisco to share how they are leveraging this emerging new media format to extend the impact of conventional advertising and marketing programs.
Appearing on the panel are:
- Steve Gillmor of Podshow’s “The Gillmor Gang,” a technology-focused program whose advertisers include Earthlink and AOL.
- Tim Bourquin of “EnduranceRadio.com” whose advertisers include Gatorade and Fleet Feet Sports.
- Katie Kempner, director of communications at Crispin Porter + Bogusky and host of “The Hook,” a podcast about the intersection of advertising and PR.
- Kelly Wagman, customer relationship marketing manager at Juniper Networks, who spearheads “Sound Off,” a podcast designed to galvanize the company's customer base through an open dialogue between their employees and customers.
The session will be moderated by iPressroom founder and chairman Eric Schwartzman, who hosts the podcast “On the Record…Online,” which explores how new media formats like podcasts, blogs and RSS are changing -- and threatening to disrupt – the mainstream media business as we know it. Past guests on Schwartzman’s podcast include Ken Auletta of The New Yorker, Walt Mossberg of The Wall Street Journal and David Pogue of the New York Times.
“Podcasting is an extremely exciting channel because it allows advertisers to leverage the power of audio and video without buying a single minute of satellite time, online media or television,” said Susan Bratton, chief executive officer at Cendara, Inc. and ad:tech Chair. “Schwartzman is a beacon in this emerging area and we are indebted to him for assembling this expert panel.”
ad:tech San Francisco runs Wednesday, April 26 through Friday, April 28, 2006 at Moscone Center in San Francisco, California. Keynote speakers include Mark Kvamme, venture partner at Sequoia Capital, Keith Ferrazzi, author of “Never Eat Alone” and James McGregor, author of “One Billion Customers, lessons from the front lines of doing business in China.”
