I am taking a new job at The Seattle Times! Have any nominees for great op-ed writers?
For Immediate Release – April 19, 2012
Contact: Jill Mackie
Sharon Pian Chan has been named the new associate opinions editor/digital for The Seattle Times, effective May 29. She also becomes a member of the newspaper’s editorial board, which determines the board’s policy positions.
“We are very excited to have a digital journalist joining The Times opinion pages,” said Editorial Page Editor Kate Riley. “She brings a passion for civil discourse as well as skills that will advance our community’s lively and constructive conversations in print and online.”
In her new role, Chan will use digital tools to expand The Times opinion pages as a forum for community dialogue on topics important to our region. She will also manage guest column submissions.
“I am thrilled to be joining The Seattle Times’ editorial team,” said Sharon Chan. “We have an incredible opportunity to embrace and engage our readers wherever they are — online, on their iPhones, on Facebook and in the newspaper. In the chaos of online conversation, smart opinions have never been more important. We are a place where you can share yours.”
This deal is right up there with the $17 mirrored console table (originally $179.99) I recently scored at Marshalls.
Sign up by Friday to get the best rate: $325 for professionals who are members of any of the alliance associations (AAJA, NAHJ, NAJA or NLGJA).
Does $325 sound like a lot for journalism training?
Well, consider that you’ll have nearly four full days of forward-looking, information-packed sessions designed for the 24/7 digital journalist. That makes the price about $80 a day. And, with about eight hours of diverse programming to choose from each day, that’s just $10 an hour.
Break it down like that, and you can’t afford not to come to UNITY12, right?
