    CNN iReport 5 Yr Anniversary in Los Angeles - PreEvent


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     PinkSlipMixe says, 'I want to meet other iReporters and want to inspire my friends to become citizen journalists. At our event, I have asked Jeff Kaufman, who used to be the news producer at KCAL ch. 9 in LA, to offer tips to our community. Because we are having our celebration at the Microsoft store, we have access to a 9 foot video screen and will be streaming other iReport videos. In addition, Microsoft will be giving goodie bags and may even raffle off a Bloggie!'
    - Cortnee H, CNN iReport producer

    Edwin Duterte of California will be hosting the CNN iReport 5 year anniversary in Los Angeles on Thursday August 18th.


    We will be mixing and mingling with other iReports at the Microsoft Store in Los Angeles.  Microsoft will be giving us goodie bags and from what I hear... maybe even raffle a cool toy (perhaps a Bloggie)!


    We've even asked Jeff Kaufman, an award-winning journalist, TV and New Media producer and showrunner, radio host, and an adviser to audience-facing businesses, to take a look at our iReports and give us a few pointers to make our ireports even more news worthy.


    He leads STORY INDUSTRIES (http://StoryIndustries.com), which collaborates with select Media, Corporate, Non-profit and Individual Clients to Create Content, Build Brands, Sharpen Staffs and Streamline Systems, enabling on- and offline businesses to identify, reach and engage audiences on the air, on the web and on the go!
