Get Your Seminar Face On
2005-01-27 09:08
by Jon Weisman
Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

The evening is going to be about the "New Face of Sports Journalism," so I guess I had better shave.

Along with Times columnist J.A. Adande, KCAL Channel 9 broadcaster Alan Massengale, KSPN 710 talkshow host Steve Mason and Dodger public relations director John Olguin, I will be participating in a seminar on "21st Century Sports Journalism" on February 2 at the L.A. Press Club (6464 Sunset Boulevard, 8th floor).

The panel begins at 7 p.m. (moderated by Reason associate editor and media columnist Matt Welch), and is preceded at 6 p.m. by refreshments and, as the Press Club so coyly puts it, "networking." From the press release:

Panelists will explore a variety of themes, including: * The love/hate relationship between teams (and fans) and their hometown paper * The Dodgers' PR problems this off-season * How to cover increasingly aloof pro athletes * The ESPN factor * Tips for the novice sports journalist * Interesting developments online * and more!

I think I must fall in the category of "interesting developments online," although I will strive to be a part of "and more!".

Tickets are $15 for non-members, $5 for members and free for those who join the Press Club at the event. To RSVP or get more information, call (323) 469-8180 or e-mail info@lapressclub.org.
