About the Book

Media strategist and award-winning journalist David E. Henderson reveals how to navigate today’s complex and evolving traditional and online media environments. As new and not-so-new ways of communication collide, it is imperative to maximize an organization’s voice and awareness, all with the intent to better connect with audiences.

Organizations of all sizes can simply bypass mainstream media to communicate their news, in the way they choose directly to their audience. In the Internet era, the status quo is no longer in the scramble for competitive leadership. It is an ever-changing landscape that can adapt to the needs of the marketplace and the audience instantaneously.

For top executives, leaders, communications professionals and managers, Making News in the Digital Era makes sense of the merging old and new media, and delivers practical ways to communicate in our competitive world.
