Confirmed: Jason Pugh Gone From 4 - 12/14 - NewsBlues confirms a rumbling that DCRTV first reported yesterday: Jason Pugh (right), a reporter and weekend sports anchor for the past four years at NBC-owned Channel 4/WRC, quietly left the station after Sunday's late newscast. His contract was not renewed. The station quickly scrubbed his online bio and Twitter account without explanation. Pugh was hired in December 2012 from WPTV-TV in Palm Beach, Florida, where he had been a sports anchor and features reporter. He landed in DC following the double departure of Lindsay Czarniak and Hakem Dermish to ESPN. WRC's then-primary sports anchor Dan Hellie, now with the Los Angeles-based NFL Network, is also a WPTV alum, NewsBlues notes.....

As Adrienne LaFrance writes,
It's an interactive map that lets you tune into any one of thousands of radio stations all over the world in real time. Exploring the site is both immersive and a bit disorienting—it offers the sense of lurking near Earth as an outsider. In an instant, you can click to any dot on the map and hear what's playing on the radio there, from Miami to Lahore to Berlin to Sulaymaniyah and beyond.
...Radio Garden allows you to travel not just through space, but through time—or at least time zones. So when it's 5:08 a.m. in Nome, Alaska, and the local radio station is playing "Mercy Came Running,"—a song by the Christian trio Phillips, Craig and Dean—it's also 5:08 p.m. in Moscow, where Haddaway's 1993 hit "What Is Love" is on the radio.
At the same time—as in literally at the same time—you might find Bruno Mars's "Grenade" playing in Rome, where it's 3:08 p.m., and Billy Idol's "Dancing With Myself" playing in Honolulu, where it's 4:08 a.m, and The Talking Heads's "Wild Wild Life" playing in Buenos Aires, where it's 11:08 a.m. (That's in addition to all the songs in languages other than English playing everywhere from Ghana to Egypt to Mexico.)

- Which social media channels are a priority at your organization?
- Social media is ever changing. Who at yr org is responsible for keeping up w/social media changes? How’s it working?
- What would be possible if you could keep up w/ social media changes & incorporate them into your communications?
- How can your org keep up with social media changes? Where can you get the information you need?
While I've created all of these docs, they rely on y'all to update. So take a look and update what you can. The changes will make the lists better for everyone.

Highlights of the DC version include the DC EITC Campaign, hypothermia season, oversight and budget hearings, Child Abuse Prevention Month, Emancipation Day, Truck Touch, PARK(ing) Day, and the annual candlelight vigil for youth victims of homicide. If I missed something, all you have to do is add it. Be sure your addition is in turquoise and bold.
A super huge thank you to LightBox Collaborative for their heavy lift on the Evergreen Editorial Calendar.

Evergreen Editorial Calendar
It's the most wonderful time of the year. The holidays are in full swing, and if you are like me you love the smell of pine in the air. Evergreens are our favorite trees at the LightBox Collaborative, because no matter when, you know what you are getting with an evergreen, and you know that it will be there for you year after year.
So in that spirit, we offer you a new version of our beloved Editorial Calendar: The Evergreen. Rather than tying this one to the specific dates of 2017, we have included the events that happen every year in the same months, so that you can keep using this version in perpetuity.
We think this is an improvement as you now have a version of the calendar you will never have to wait for! We also understand this is a change to a resource that many of you have come to rely on, but we hope you can understand why this change makes sense. At LightBox Collaborative, we pride ourselves on knowing when we are the best team for the job, and when we aren't.
In this case, there are a lot of smart folks doing better work on this than we are. Kivi Leroux Miller of NonprofitMarketingGuide.com offers tons of great editorial calendar resources, including a book of templates and monthly content ideas.
Read the entire blog post for additional calendars and hooks.
And be on the lookout for a DC-specific crowdsourced editorial calendar based on the LightBox Collaborative calendar.
