Broadcasting LIVE from the Online News Association Conference

Once again, intrepid BlogTalkRadio broadcaster John C. Havens will be interviewing notable journalists at the Online News Association Conference October 18 and 19 LIVE on-site from the Toronto conference floor.


The sold-out ONA 2007 Conference and Awards provides training, workshops and panel discussions for online journalists. The exciting lineup contains hands-on half-day workshops in video reporting, flash programming and citizen journalism. If you are a BlogTalkRadio host, then you are a citizen journalist. That’s something to think about…

Interviews start at 2pm ET, today, October 18, 2007, and are scheduled to run for two days until the close of conference. The live interviews as well as the archives can be found at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/ona.

Just some of the esteemed interviewees include:

Paul Maidment Editor, Forbes.com, Executive Editor, Forbes

Howard Parnell Executive Director of Digital Media WNYC

Dan Froomkin White House Watch columnist for WashingtonPost.com and Deputy Editor of NiemanWatchdog.org.

Beth Lawton Manager, Digital Media Newspaper Association of America

Please download the entire interview schedule (subject to change) to tune into the live conversations with influential members of today’s top online news organizations.

The three-day event expands upon the mission of the ONA, whose founding principles state:

We believe that the Internet is the most powerful communications medium to arise since the dawn of television. As the Net becomes a primary source of news for a growing segment of the world’s population, it presents complex challenges and opportunities for journalists as well as the news audience.
