Trade journal of the future

Alisa Cromer launched the first Angie’s list-style review site for media technology, MediaExecsTech during her fellowship. The site was developed by LocalMediaInsider for its more than 400 media subscribers. Local Media Insider is an online trade journal serving local media executives in television, radio and newspapers who are developing digital business models.

Any member of a journalism-based media company can now join the network by paying a fee of less than $2 a week. Users then get access to the resource center of best practice case studies. With the help of MediaExecsTech, subscribers can also look directly for technology resources that other media executives have endorsed, whether or not there is a case study.
