According to my go-to blog Mashable, Wednesday, June 30 is Social Media Day. And considering how many journalists continue to add social media tools to help them with their reporting, I thought it would be great to join in the festivities.
So please join me on June 30 a noon Eastern time for an NABJDigital roundtable discussion with our guests Walter Fields, founder of NorthStarNews.com, Dr. Sybril Bennett, associate professor of journalism and the Executive Director of the New Century Journalism program at Belmont University in Nashville and Georgia Dawkins, a graduating broadcast journalism senior at Florida A&M University and the student representative on the NABJ board. We’ll talk about how — and why — journalists should use social media tools in reporting on stories. We’ll also offer social media tips and tricks and have time for your questions. We’ll be using Blog Talk Radio for this discussion, and more details are here. I hope you can join us!
