Our next meetup will be focused on Hyperlocal in Your 'Hood and it will take place on Wednesday, April 27 at 6:00 p.m. (Please note the time change!)
Hyperlocal has different meanings for different people. It could be Patch, your local newspaper's specialized site, or a highly focused blog. Whether you call it hyperlocal news, hyperlocal content, online neighborhood sites, community scaled sites, or a myriad of other names, it is changing the definition and process of journalism. What makes a successful hyperlocal site? Can large newspapers produce successful hyperlocal sites? What is the role of professional journalists, unpaid bloggers and photographers in this new newsroom?
Join us for a lively panel discussion featuring Warren Webster, President of Patch; Led Black, Editor in Chief of Uptown Collective; Jeff Yang, Project Director of OurChinatown.org, Mary Giordano, Metro Editor, New York Times; Kelly Virella, Deputy Editor CityLimits Magazine & Leela de Kretser, Editorial Director and Publisher at DNAinfo.com. Brooke Kroeger, director of NYU's Arthur L Carter Institute of Journalism will be moderating this panel.
Our Meetup will take place at the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute, 20 Cooper Square. We are grateful to the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute and their staff for hosting our event.
