I thought I’d provide you with an example of the way I like to conduct event coverage via blog. This week I’m attending the Indianapolis 500 and my primary coverage is on our Domestic Fuel website. The following is one of the posts from Thursday that shows you a good mix of media types that can be done. This was posted to the website before the afternoon was over. Think of how you can do this (or outsource to us) for your events. Let me know if you’d like more information. Here’s my post:
After the Ethanol Summit program was over, it was time for a ride around the track. USDA Under Secretary Tom Dorr is inside the truck you see here on his second lap.
I got to ride in the truck afterward. They allowed 3 of us to ride along with the driver. I interviewed them all as we were making our laps today in the Chevrolet Ethanol Pace Truck.
The guys in the truck with me were Dan Edwards, Indy Track Racking Operations Director (driver), National Corn Growers Association Chairman, Leon Corzine and Waitt Farm Network Director, Emery Kleven. Emery took the picture of me in the back seat with Leon. You can listen to the interview here: Indy Pace Truck Interview (3 min MP3)
Just to make it interesting I also shot video clips. The first one here is a Pace Truck drive-by with the USDA Sec. inside. The second one is my ride inside the truck while doing the interview you can hear above.
