“Conversations with media … over beer.” featuring “Going to the Dark Side”
Attendees of the September 2015 “Conversations with Media” found out what it’s like to transition from Hack to Flack. Does it require a call to serve? A desire to escape the constantly shifting mandates of journalism? A shift in sociopolitical ideology? Or — let’s face it — a better paycheck and more free time to spend with friends and family? The event featured three Sacramento celebrities:
Jeffrey Callison, former Capital Public Radio Insight host, now press secretary, California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation
Kevin Riggs, former KCRA 3 news anchor and political reporter, now senior vice president, Randle Communications
Venus Stromberg, former bureau chief at Capitol Television News Service, now public information officer, Board of Equalization
This was the second in a series of informal monthly gatherings hosted by the Sacramento Press Club to discuss a wide range of issues of interest to local journalists.
