The event includes a panel of leading news media executives from San Diego county who will discuss the increasing role and impact of social media on public relations within companies.
Social media has dramatically changed today’s newsroom in terms of how the media disseminates stories as well as identifies newsworthy topics for stories. Because reporters are utilizing social media platforms to develop topics, it has become an increasingly important aspect of a company’s overall public relations strategy.
Panelists will include some of California's business journals leading news experts in San Diego. Panelists will be Reo Carr, Corporate VP of Digital Media and Editor-in-Chief of the San Diego Business Journal, Diana McCabe, Business Editor of U-T San Diego, Rich Goldner, News Director from Fox 5 - San Diego, and Scott Lewis, CEO, Voice of San Diego. The event will be moderated by Camille Saltman, President, Connect of San Diego.
Those who attend this event will leave with a better understanding of how our leading news media experts: use social media and how it has impacted their work; determine the appropriate methods to utilize for pitching and engaging the media via the social channel: increase the efficiency of PR departments using social media; and what they have learned (lessons/pitfalls to avoid) when integrating social media with public relations efforts.
