150 bloggers, journalists and members of the press gathered for an informative and educational panel hosted by BlogCrush and OC Press Club recently. Graciously hosted by the wonderful Anaheim Marriott Suites, it was a night of amazing food and great conversation centered around the intersection between traditional journalism and new media. BlogCrush invited some amazing panelists to share their wisdom including: Steve Churm (Churm Media), Michele Himmelberg (Disneyland PR), Chris Epting (Author and Columnist) and Keven Sablan (The OC Register). All of whom were invited as they have been leaders in new and traditional media.
Marcy Massura (BlogCrush Co-Founder) moderated and kept the conversation moving along, as well as Suz Broughton (Co-Founder) who added some wonderful words of wisdom. Marcy had joked that she saw the evening like a ‘gang truce’ trying to bring two sides of the world together to eliminate the friction between traditional press writers and less formal bloggers. Her goal she said was ‘to help both sides respect each other for the role they each play in story telling.’
More educational/ panel events are being planned for 2012 from BlogCrush.
We hope you will plan on attending them all!
