Media Monday Edmonton: Update #64

Here is my latest update on local media stuff:

  • Have you heard? 92.5 JOE FM has been renamed to 925 Fresh FM. They must be doing the new format/station on a tiny budget. Not only is their logo horrendous, but their website consists entirely of embedded Facebook and Twitter widgets. Maybe that’s the way it is done now. Or maybe they just blew the budget on the front page ad in the Edmonton Sun. Even more curiously, they decided to create NEW social media profiles rather than take advantage of the existing communities they had created. Over 2300 followers on Twitter and 4600 likes on Facebook, just thrown away. Here’s the PSR thread on the switch.

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!
