THIS WEEK: The changing landscape of media + political campaigns

Thursday, Oct. 18, 6:30 p.m.

Two and a half weeks before the closely-watched and even more closely-contested Nov. 6 election, the latest can’t-miss panel from the San Diego chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists will be both timely and thought-provoking. You’ll hear a four-member panel of political pros discuss and dissect the media relations end of campaigns and how it has evolved in recent years in San Diego and out-of-town news agencies alike.

The panel will include Jennifer Tierney, principal and founder of the Gemini Group, a San Diego-based political consulting firm that serves clients in both Southern California and Virginia; MaryAnne Pintar, communications director for the Scott Peters for Congress campaign; K.B. Forbes, communications director for the Carl DeMaio for mayor campaign, and Jason Roe of San Diego’s Revolvis Consulting firm.

Their insightful commentary. Your intriguing questions. Just days before the election. Like we said, can’t miss.

The free event will be on Thursday, Oct. 18 at the KPBS Studios, 5200 Campanile Drive, San Diego, CA 92182.
Light refreshments and mixer at 6:30 p.m. Panel from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Parking is available on the SDSU campus near KPBS.
