John’s Monday Tip of the Week: Debate Coverage Tomorrow Night

Good evening, see

Tomorrow is our second Salem-sponsored GOP debate so we’re very excited to build off the success of the first debate. I know many of you have already been doing an awesome job promoting the debate schedule but tomorrow, we’re trying to promote our live reporting/tweeting of the debate.

That brings us to John’s Monday Tip of the Week.

During our last Salem debate, we set up a back page which featured a Twitter feed that included the tweets from our main hosts and your stations.

This time, we’re doing something similar but we have two areas that we’re improving upon.

1.) Now that the news editor allows us to set up our own “Breaking News” stories, we’re planning to make “Live Debate Coverage” the top story there during the debates tomorrow night. That means that the “Breaking News” spot will be publicizing our live coverage/ Twitter feed of the debates.

2.) We also want this to be a more interactive user experience so at the top of the debate coverage page, I’m going to tell our listeners how to be a part of the experience. I’m going to ask them to tweet me @SalemDebate to ask questions or make comments. I’ll retweet appropriate questions and coverage. One of the goals during this debate is to get more users involved in our coverage and staying tuned to our sites so I’m hoping that gets a lot of our listeners involved.

I’ll make the top “Breaking News” story live across the Newstalk sites around 4 PM tomorrow. Once it’s up, I’d love for you all to publicize the page using the attached ads (which were previously used during our last debate).
Once the story is live, I’ll send out the station-specific links for all of you.

Tomorrow is a big day for us so please use this opportunity to tweet out about the debate and get users tuned in! I’ll be around all evening tweeting out from the @SalemDebate account so if there’s anything I can do to help (or if you want some help setting up the ads), let me know.

This has been John’s Monday Tip of the Week.
