Each representative spoke on how Potter County leaders could best use the local media to advertise and notify the public of projects they are involved in. The representatives also addressed how media has changed, and how they expect media to change in the next five or ten years.
The representatives then participated in a question and answer session about the media that they represent.
Participants from area media were Teri McDowell, News Editor of the "Potter Leader-Enterprise"; Gerri Miller, WFRM; Chris Keagle, Zito Media; and James Jones, Editor-Publisher of "Solomon's words."
Robert Hooftallen of Endeavor News was invited, but unable to attend due to the Friday deadline for publishing his paper.
