This edition: Theatre Journalism: Online and OffTweet
Original tape date: March 18, 2011.

The opportunities and challenges of online arts journalism started off the discussion for our panel – Chris Caggiano, Scott Heller, David J. Loehr, Jan Simpson and Terry Teachout. They also discuss how blogging is able to reach a more expansive and diverse audience than traditional journalism; what they look for online and if what they read affects their own writing; and how social media has been able to create national and even international conversations about theatre.
