President Jennifer Pennington opened the meeting and called on Erick Montgomery who led the pledge and invocation. Margaret Woodard introduced the guests and visiting Rotarians. Thanks to last week’s Club Cart Challenger we raised $130.22. This week’s Inside Challenger is Connie Melear and Outside Challenger is Furniture Outlet. Brad Means gave the Sunshine Report. Jeff Simless announced the results of the Football Follies
President Jennifer Pennington called on Tim Owings to introduce Brad Means of WJBF and Richard Rogers of WRDW.
Seasoned media veterans Brad Means and Richard Rogers spoke about election coverage. Richard said a major challenge is “finding fairness and balance.” Brad said he strives to be fair and also stressed the importance of making the most of your access to a candidate before it diminishes. Another challenge is having enough time to cover candidates because segments are rarely longer than ninety seconds. To mitigate this often each candidate is spotlighted each day.
Next meeting will be October 24, 2016.
The meeting was adjourned following the recital of the Four-Way Test.
