Mobile Strategies for Journalism
Wednesday, Oct. 12, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Mitten Hall, Room 250
Gahran is a journalist, consultant and entrepreneur who explores how media is changing — and how communities, organizations and media outlets can thrive in this change. Her current main focus is mobile media, because everyone has a cell phone and they’re using them in lots of interesting ways — even not-so-smartphones. She’s a co-founder of OaklandLocal.com, a community news/view site serving Oakland, Calif. (where she currently lives). Gahran also covers mobile technology for CNN.com, and offers guidance to journalists, newsrooms and news entrepreneurs through the Knight Digital Media Center at USC. She’s always on Twitter at @agahran, and her blog is Contentious.com.
This event is free and open to the public. Light food and drink will be served.
Thanks for reading and hope to see you there.
