Introducing ONA on Air

We invite you to tune into our new podcast ONA on Air! Pitched by ONA18 Audio Team Chair Erika Aguilar, ONA on Air will share snippets from popular sessions at ONA18, interviews with speakers and other highlights from the conference. The feed will be available on SoundCloud, Apple Podcasts and Stitcher. Listen to the trailer.

Candidates for ONA Board of Directors

Voting for six open seats on the 2019-20 Board of Directors opens next week! All ONA members as of Sept. 9 will be eligible to vote. This year’s diverse slate of Board candidates includes 17 new nominees and five incumbents. Candidates will speak about their vision for ONA and the digital journalism industry during a session at ONA18 on Thursday, Sept. 13, 3:30 p.m. CT. If you can’t be there in person, RSVP for the livestream to receive a notification when the session starts.
