Blog Update

Hey, everyone. For those who have read and followed along, let me first offer my sincere thanks. For those who have engaged and followed us on Twitter, we love it and find engaging with you greatly enjoyable.

This blog is still very much a work in progress. I have recently accepted a position with a public relations firm here in Birmingham, so our posts will be as often as possible in the time I have. The subject matters we cover are all topics I’m very passionate about, so we will continue to bring you news, stories and analysis that matters.

That said, I’d like to share some vision and hopes we have for this site in the coming days, weeks and months. We’re currently beginning talks with some contacts around various facets of media to come on as contributors. One of our core goals is to always expand our content offerings and the vantage points from which we cover our stories. Another one of our foundational goals is to expand our audience and provide greater reach to not only those within the industry, but also to those who simply enjoy it as a hobby. We believe that broadcast, print, digital and social media are changing on a daily basis and also that those mediums are foundational to how we communicate and tell stories. We will always seek to provide you with information that is timely and relevant, but also forward-looking.

You can follow us on Twitter at @_themediapost. We’ll have more social developments coming and are currently in the process of branding the site, so be out on the lookout for that, also!

Thank you, again, for reading. We sincerely are thankful.


Sweepstakes: Stepping and Singing in 2014

After four years as a student worker, I’m pleased to announce I’ll be returning to Samford to serve as executive producer for Step Sing 2014. It’s an honor to serve my alma mater in this way and it’s also a thrill to continue my production career and gain more valuable experience.

Most of our team will be returning. Our student producer and director are returners and should develop a strong product. Most of our contract crew has been with us for 15-plus years, so they’re great to be around and to guide our student team. Dan Harb, of Harb Productions, will be back with us providing a brand new 30′ expandable truck. If you need an EIC for your broadcast event, I highly recommend Dan. Not only is he incredibly knowledgable, but a pleasure to be around.

We’re about to roll in pre-production meetings to start programming the nights. Our “Countdown to Step Sing” pre-show is back again and should have some strong improvements upon last year’s shot in the dark. As we approach February and more details become available, I’ll update here, so be sure to check back and see how things are unfolding prior to the biggest event on campus at Samford.

Also, as an aside, check back here tomorrow for an update on the status of the blog and some vision and hopes I have for here on out. We’ll be back on a consistent posting schedule beginning tonight.

Thanks for following along!
