Hard News by Russell Brown


Orcon IRL 5: Media and Journalism

It is the best of times, it is the worst of times … it sometimes looks like the end of times.

ORCON IRL AT THE GOLDEN DAWN is back on Tuesday, August 23 to ask the hard questions about MEDIA AND JOURNALISM. And what a lineup we have!

RUSSELL BROWN asks Morning Report's GUYON ESPINER about getting up early and setting the news agenda every damn day, even when you just don't feel like talking to Winston Peters.

Ace Mana magazine editor LEONIE HAYDEN comes in as co-host and quizzes the New Zealand Herald's KIRSTY JOHNSTON and The Spinoff's ALEX CASEY about where it's at right now.

And former MediaWorks news chief MARK JENNINGS and former Herald editor TIM MURPHY discuss the changing media landscape and explain their new venture and how they're going to save everyone.

It all happens from 6.30pm on TUESDAY, AUGUST 23 at The Golden Dawn Tavern of Power, corner Richmond and Ponsonby Roads. And if you can't make it to the venue, the team from 95bFM will be streaming it all live on the internet.

UPDATE: We are pleased to announce that we have secured the services of top journalistic DJ team ALAN PERROTT and LIAM DANN to provide the musical interludes.

Entry is free and this is going to be a RAM DANCEHALL, so don't delay and RSVP here on the Facebook event page. (If you don't do Facebook, just click the email button at the bottom of this post and let me know you'd like to come.)
