Come and see how the transition is working – and discuss how it is affecting local and national news coverage.
President Dan Gaydou will update InterCom members on his company’s progress, the highlights and lowlights. of MLive’s first year and the success of its MLive.com. He will also update us on several new interactive media tools: one helps reporters present their stories more clearly with infographics; others are changing the way advertising is delivered.
Among the trends occurring in digital journalism are:
