Wow. I’ve been so busy, I forgot that MyUrbanReport.com just had its second birthday on August 23.
It started with this post on Blogspot. As I experimented with online video, and discovered video podcasting I figured that this one time local newsman could create a news outlet of his own.
I’ve produced more than 130 video podcasts, traveled across the country, and many of you have followed me on my media adventures.
I’m a new school journalist, for a new school media world.
Thanks for the love, support, and kind words.
