Daniel Victor: From the Centre Daily Times to the New York Times (Mon. 24 Mar, 2014 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm)

The final presentation in this spring’s Communications Speakers Series at Penn State Harrisburg will spotlight the fast-growing field of social media communications, from the vantage point of The New York Times newsroom and one of the field’s young pioneers. Speaker Daniel Victor also has ties to the area, as a Penn State alumnus and former Patriot-News reporter. The talk is slated for 7 p.m. Monday, March 24, in the Capital Union Building (CUB) on campus.

A 2006 graduate of Penn State, Victor began his journalism career while he was still in school by working as a stringer for the Centre Daily Times in State College. He also started a blog on Penn State sports at a time when blogs were rare. While working as a reporter for The Patriot-News from 2006 to 2010, he authored numerous front-page stories. When newsrooms started to recognize the potential of social media networks, he made his move into a new subfield in journalism. Since 2012, he has worked as a social media staff editor at The New York Times. Prior to his current position, he was the social media editor at ProPublica, a non-profit newsroom focused on investigative journalism. He also launched a hyperlocal site for Philly.com, the online home of the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News, and served as a community host for TBD, a website/television station that covered local news and sports in Washington, D.C.

Victor’s upcoming talk is funded by the Student Activity Fee Fund at Penn State Harrisburg, with additional support from the college’s Office of the Chancellor and School of Humanities. The event is free and open to the public.

 

From the Centre Daily Times to The New York Times: How a Combination of Adapting, Planning, and Lucky Bounces Led to a Dream Job (Mon. 24 Mar, 2014 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm)

Prior to his current position, he was the social media editor at ProPublica, a non-profit newsroom focused on investigative journalism. He also launched a site for Philly.com, the online home of the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News, that was specific to the local community and served as a community host for TBD, a website/television station that covered local news and sports in Washington, D.C.

As a social media staff editor at a major metropolitan daily, Victor operates social media accounts, leads crowdsourcing projects, develops strategy, and trains other journalists in the use of social tools and techniques. His expertise has led to various speaking engagements with the Online News Association, American Society of Copy Editors, Association of Alternative Newsmedia, and Pennsylvania Newspaper Association, among others.

Victor’s talk is made possible by the Student Activity Fee Fund at Penn State Harrisburg, with additional support from the college’s Office of the Chancellor and School of Humanities. The event is free and open to the public.
