Electronic Journalists - is releasing a mobile app in advance of next

their day, watch for special alerts and keep up with everything
happening during the conference", said Peter Angione, RTDNA Conference
Chair. "Our newsrooms are adapting to the digital way of doing things,
RTDNA needs to do the same thing. This is our first attempt at an app.
We hope everyone at the conference will give our mobile app a try and
tell us what they like and don't like so we can make it even better in

creation and launch of this digital app is one way to explore and
contemplate our profession's future."
