This afternoon I took part in the first-ever recording of the “Journalism Now Podcast,” which is a weekly online roundtable discussion covering “multimedia, data and social aspects of modern news.”
Podcast founder and host David Stanton, who teaches digital journalism at the University of Florida’s College of Journalism and Communications, has invited eight digital media and multimedia experts to a weekly chat about the media issues of the day. I’m sure all of us won’t make it every week (Steve Yelvington went missing today due to a firewall issue with Skype), so it’ll be a rotating cast of characters.
I’m not exactly sure when podcast No. 1 will go up, but Stanton thought possibly as early as Sunday. I’ll let you know.
The podcast is a joint project of U of F and the Poynter Institute. Representing Poynter on the panel is Ellyn Angelotti, the Institute’s interactivity editor. And there are a couple Poynter staff alums: Paige West, now at MSNBC.com, and me. (Full list of panelists are listed on the main podcast page.)
