myLocal.net to Present at Convergence 2010 Conference


Jun 06 2010

Jason Banks, co-founder of start-up company myLocal.net, has been invited to participate in Radio Ink’s 2010 Convergence conference, which features some of the biggest names in the digital and radio broadcast industries. 

Sonora, CA - June 1, 2010 -- myLocal.net, recently spun out of Clarke Broadcasting, and one of its co-founders, Jason Banks, have been invited to participate in Radio Ink’s 2010 Convergence conference which takes place June 3rd and 4th at the Microsoft Campus in Santa Clara CA.  Some of the biggest names in the digital and radio broadcast industries will attend the popular conference.  Banks has been asked to speak on “Experiments Gone Right” along with Amy Van Hook, Director of Digital Operations for Entercom, and Royle Johnson, Digital Sales Manager for Alpha Broadcasting.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for us”, Banks said.  “Eric Rhoads, publisher of Radio Ink magazine, asked us to participate after we walked him through our portal and business model.  Radio broadcasters have struggled to monetize the Internet in a meaningful way.  We’re hopeful that we can show them the incredible opportunity they have within today’s confluence of media and Internet technologies and events.  A community portal model like myMotherLode.com, can really allow them to profitably leverage their strengths and put them at the center of their local audience’s digital life.”

Recently spun out of Clarke Broadcasting myLocal.net’s mission is to help its affiliates build a profitable, integrated, Internet business.   Based on 9 years of development and operation of the leading local community portal, myMotherlode.com, myLocal.net’s Community Portal 1.2 is a Web content Management System (WCMS) and business model designed to help broadcasters increase their reach, deepen engagement with their audience, grow their digital revenues and profits.   Broadcaster and other media companies interested in leveraging their news and sales assets by developing a community web portal for their markets can visit http://www.myLocal.net for information.  For more information, they can also call Gary Granger at 209-536-2400 or reach him by email at gary.granger@mylocal.net.
