Interesting day. Been fixing up a blogger event around a local fa game on the 27th. Idea is that we engage football bloggers in joining the tv team to give their perspective. Perhaps also to do a bit of tv reporting. The suggestion and organisation of the has come from 1000 heads, social networking brains, who have been helping raise our profile in online spaces.
We have also been looking at an external project called 'supporters to reporters' which encourages and supports young people to become reporters. All comes under the umbrella of citizen journalism which we're going to explore at an itv conference later this month and our own networking session in leeds for media partners on the 30th october.
