Registration Links and Info

The convention will offer a variety of sessions on producing great journalism, the impact on journalism of the 2016 election, creating new digital products, discovering what advertisers want, and much more.

And best of all, more cowbell!

Among the speakers will be Jim Brady, CEO of Spirited Media and ESPN's public editor. Brady has also been executive editor of washingtonpost.com, editor-in-chief of Digital First Media, and programming director of news and sports for America Online. The convention will also feature Kevin Slimp, one of our nations top newspaper design gurus and a popular presenter from previous ONA conventions, and a session with media buyers on what advertisers want and need. We’ve also invited Ohio Gov. John Kasich to speak about his plans for Ohio and his thoughts on Election 2016 and beyond. And once again, we’ll have our popular round-table, idea-sharing sessions for ad directors and editors.

For information about sponsorship, vendor exhibits and registration, contact Sue Bazzoli, manager of administrative services, at 614-486-6677 ext. 1018 or at sbazzoli@ohionews.org.
