I am very happy to announce that I will be participating in a panel on The Intersection of Podcasting and Radio on June 21, 2006 at the inaugural Corporate Podcasting Summit at Sofitel San Francisco Bay.

To many, Podcasting is a disruptive media that threatens terrestrial radio; others suggest it’s radio’s welcome neighbour. I will be joining Mark Ramsey, Founder and President of Mercury Radio Research, and David Ives, Chief Executive of TVEyes | Podscope, to discuss the facts.

The Corporate Podcasting Summit is an in-depth, two-day event taking place June 20-21, 2006 in San Francisco. The conference will present Podcasting basics to companies that are considering launching their own Podcasts, and has invited speakers with experience and expertise to deliver the best content. Speakers include Michael W. Geoghegan, host of the official Disneyland Resort Podcasts; PodCast411 host, Rob Walch; Whirlpool‘s Audrey Reed-Granger; John Furrier of PodTech.net; Forrester Research‘s Charlene Li; speakers from Keane, BEA Systems, Feedburner and more.
