Free Workshop Offers Access to the Media

Posted by Jarvis Holliday On 4/17/2009 No comments

There's a great workshop taking place tomorrow, and I'm not just saying this because I helped organize it. “Secrets to Accessing the Media” is a free community workshop being held Saturday, April 18, 1-3 p.m. at the Afro-American Cultural Center (401 N. Myers St.)

The Charlotte Area Association of Black Journalists (CAABJ) has assembled an outstanding panel of journalists who will provide insight into how their individual publications and broadcasts are produced and they’ll also give you tips on how you can get your stories told. This is your chance to build contacts so you can learn how to publicize your business, church, charity, fundraiser, special event, nonprofit organization, or even yourself.

The workshop’s panelists are April Bethea, reporter for The Charlotte Observer; Glenn Burkins, publisher and editor of; Janine Davis, producer and co-host of Power 98 FM’s morning show; Kristen Miranda, WBTV/WJZY consumer reporter; Carlton Hargro, editor of Creative Loafing; and Richard Thurmond, editor and associate publisher of Charlotte magazine. This, in effect, covers newspapers, magazines, TV, radio, and Internet.

If you plan to attend you're asked to RSVP at Doors open at 12:30 p.m. and light refreshments will be served.

Below is a video recap from last year's event.
