Host Doug Storm asks WFHB News Director, Alycin Bektesh, questions about the upcoming WFHB News Summit.
Anyone with an interest in the current status of the News Department, the future of particular shows, or a desire to learn more radio skills is invited. You do not have to be a current volunteer in the News Department to attend any of the sessions. The first week of sessions, July 7th – July 11th will be geared toward information sessions on current procedures and practices, as well as program staff/listener meet and greets.
The Summit takes place July 7th through August 1st, Monday through Friday, 11am – 12pm. Sessions range from 45 minutes to 90 minutes and fall into one of three tracks: Big Ideas, Individual Programing, & Training. The same sessions are held at the same time each week, and each week takes on a different focus. Week one: Introductions, Week Two: Brainstorming, Week Three: Action Plan, Week Four: Implementation.
