Uncategorized

First posted July 31, 2015, additional articles added as come out.

I did a Q&A with Poynter reporter Kristen Hare on Monday [July 27, 2015] and it exploded across Twitter. We continue to see a surge in traffic and a flood of emails.

We created Expertise Finder to solve a frustration I had as a journalist, a pleasure to see it resonate with more of my journalist peers.

“Stavros Rougas often found himself in a circumstance nearly every chase producer experiences: searching for people with specific expertise to participate in panel discussions or comment on a news story on a very short timeline.”: http://jpress.journalism.ryerson.ca/jsource/ Note: this article was not the result of Poynter article. Must give J-Source journalist credit, it came out a few days after Poynter article and is part of an ongoing media trend.

  • We are vigilant about quality. We say no. And then we say no again, and again.

    The result is less of more. The tool I wanted as a journalist, enjoy expertisefinder.com.

  • George Hari Popescu
    • Mulţumesc George, I have added your article to the post. Thanks for the comment I was unaware of it, suspect there are more around the world like it. Glad it is resonating globally, know about the articles is a bonus.

      How did you learn about us?

      • George Hari Popescu

        Yes, I’m sure there are more like it. A friend sent me the link to an article talking about you, because he knew I’m interested in journalism-related news (I’m a Journalism graduate and a former teacher of Journalism).
