Van Eperen Managing Partner Jeffrey Davis has been selected to lead a panel discussion on trends in PR and podcasting at the upcoming PR Summit DC conference at the National Press Club.
The session, “What the Explosive Growth of Podcasts Means to You,” will offer an insider’s look at podcasting in 2019 and where it fits in today’s communications mix.
Nationally, the audience for podcasting grew significantly in the past year, according to Edison Research. Today, 51 percent of Americans 12+ have ever listened to a podcast, with 32 percent having listened in the past month, and 22 percent in the past week.
“Now that we all have websites, blogs, social media, brochures and more, now could be the right time to introduce a podcast to tell your story,” Davis said. “Our panel of producers and podcasters will provide tips on starting up, podcast sustainability, podcasting tools and platforms for posting and promoting your podcast.”
Panelists are Charlie Birney, co-founder of the Georgetown audio and video podcast media production studio Podcast Village; Robert Johnson, president of Washington Media Group and host/producer of the Flack Pack podcast; and Brittany Johnson, senior executive producer and digital lead at Podcast Village and co-host of The Oh My Goff Show! with Fox 5’s Angie Goff.
More than 40 experts will speak at PR Summit DC – the largest annual conference for PR and public affairs practitioners on the East Coast. Speakers include Larry Weber, CEO, Racepoint Global; Sara Fischer, media editor, Axios; Steven Pearlstein, columnist and Pulitzer Prize winner, The Washington Post; Sarah Simmons, anchor, FOX 5 DC; and, Vandana Sinha, managing editor, Washington Business Journal.
