The Radio Television Digital News Association is taking a different tack with its annual convention this year; the event will be held in the fall in New Orleans in conjunction with the Society of Professional Journalists, rather than in Las Vegas.
At NAB, RTDNA will still have a day of sessions, Tuesday, April 12, in Room N235 of the LVCC. The program consists of four sessions, starting at 10:30 a.m. This compares to past years, when several days of sessions were held at the Hilton, along with a small news exhibit floor.
Subject matter is, not surprisingly, focused on marrying traditional radio and TV news with new media and Web strategies.
The first session is “New Media and the Newsroom.” The second, after lunch, is “Repurposing News for Multi-Platform Delivery.” Number three is “The All Platform Journalist” and following that, “Monetizing the News: The Web Strategy.”
RTDNA Chair Mark Kraham will open each session. Speakers include news directors, anchors and reporters from broadcast stations. Info is here.
