Media Monday Edmonton: Update #8

Here is my latest update on local media stuff:

“As a host, you are a leader on the unit and will participate in story meetings which means keeping up on all political, social, economic and cultural developments relevant to our city. Community outreach is critical to the success of the show so you will participate in local events or station initiatives as a master of ceremonies or as a CBC  ambassador.”

“The media attention surrounding my case was so extensive, so blatant and so overtly sensationalized that it is unreasonable to expect any unsequestered jury to have remained uninfluenced by it.”

You can follow Edmonton media news on Twitter using the hashtag #yegmedia. For a great overview of the global media landscape, check out Mediagazer.

So, what have I missed? What’s new and interesting in the world of Edmonton media? Let me know!

UPDATE: This story was posted late tonight: VUE and SEE are set to merge! Apparently Bob Doull has purchased both and says merging the two into one “would be the logical thing to do.” Thanks to Jeff for the link. The story is at new Edmonton entertainment blog Gig City. Check it out!

    Great rundown on Edmonton media Mack! It will be interesting to see what happens with the Journal in these changing days – still the best newsroom Edmonton’s got on the local scene.

    As I’m reading your post I caught wind of this, about SEE and Vue merging: http://www.gigcity.ca/2011/05/16/vue-and-see-magazines-set-to-merge/

    p.s. Thanks for the shout-out on the TV show. :)

    There’s also something to Gig City – a new online entertainment and city website – breaking that news. I know some of those guys are well plugged-in to Edmonton’s arts and life scene, and write for SEE and/or Vue (or have in the past), but maybe it says something about Vue and SEE’s need to amalgamate that something like this can pop up overnight (and do a great job)?

       Yeah definitely. I think Gig City has been doing an awesome job.
