01 Feb Look Who’s Talking
When launching a major initiative, it’s hard not to hold your breath until you see whether your vision will find its way to receptive hearts and minds. We are thrilled to see this happening already with ConnectOC, thanks to a warm welcome by the media who have found the information in our community report compelling and important enough to communicate with their audiences. Here are a few highlights of what people are saying about ConnectOC so far:
ConnectOC made its public debut on the front cover of the Orange County Register on National Philanthropy Day, November 15, 2012.
It was soon followed by a radio piece that aired on Southern California’s National Public Radio station, KPCC 89.3FM, as well as lived online via an article on their website.
OC Metro’s Owner and Executive Editor, Steve Churm, not only hosted an online story about ConnectOC when the news broke, but he dedicated his Bottom Line editor’s column in his December issue to his thoughts behind the “tale of two counties.”
And finally, the news didn’t stay local. The Associated Press picked up the story, which resulted in 23 stories in outlets throughout California and the U.S.
