“Dateline: RIT – The Podcast” has arrived.
As detailed in an earlier post, “Dateline: RIT – The Podcast” is part of a family of new-media services from University News—each branded with the “Dateline” moniker—keeping you updated on coverage of RIT news and RIT people in the news.
The biweekly podcast, monthly e-newsletter (soon to be expanded), regular blog posts and forthcoming new Web site offer VIP access to the latest RIT news whenever and wherever you want it.
“Dateline: RIT” podcasts feature audio clips of remarks by RIT newsmakers in their own voices, synopses of published news stories presented by University News staff writers, and “On the campus” segments with RIT Chief Communications Officer Bob Finnerty giving updates on prominent campus news, and News & Events Managing Editor Vienna Carvalho-McGrain with highlights of top News & Events stories.
Convenient “chapter markers” within each five-minute podcast allow for easy navigation through the various audio segments.
For those unfamiliar with podcasts, they’re audio broadcasts accessible via RSS subscription or downloading. “Dateline RIT – The Podcast” is available, at no charge, through Apple iTunes and via RSS subscription. It also can be downloaded from the University News Web site. For more on podcasting and “Dateline: RIT – The Podcast,” see the article, “Internet technologies expand reach,” by Sarah Brehm ’06, in today’s (Sept. 8) issue of Rochester Business Journal.
Future podcasts spotlighting a variety of RIT news and people are planned. Your suggestions are encouraged—please feel welcome to contact me with your ideas.
See you on the pod!
