ASSOCIATION for WOMEN in COMMUNICATION — SANTA BARBARA CHAPTER
Local Journalism & What’s New at the Montecito Journal — Santa Barbara is fortunate to have many local news sources to keep us informed on everything from the pandemic and other natural disasters, to events, arts and culture. Join AWC-SB on Wednesday October 6, 5:30PM on Zoom, to hear from one of our local media leaders.
There have been a lot of changes at the Montecito Journal over the past few years since Gwyn Lurie, editor and CEO, took over the family-owned community weekly. More issue-oriented stories, the political perspectives have changed (Lurie says “it is attempting to be a paper that gives all perspectives a voice”), publication of The Giving List (which focuses on nonprofits), and more. Join us in this informative interview to hear Lurie talk about what prompted her to lead an effort to raise funds to buy the paper, the importance of local media, new projects or spinoffs that are on the horizon, and how to pitch stories or get coverage.
Bonus: AWC-SB members will receive a tip sheet of Santa Barbara media outlets including contact information and pitch preferences for editors. LINK TO REGISTER: https://www.womcom.org/content.aspx?page_id=4002&club_id=903060&item_id=1532791
