FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Ohio Conservative Review Expands Online and into Print Media
Thursday, July 11, 11:00 a.m.
This week Ohio Conservative Review announced several new and upcoming features of its website, www.OhioConservativeReview.com, for keeping conservatives up to speed on the latest Ohio political news and analysis.
OCR unrolled a beta version of its “OCR News Feed” shortly after Executive Director Adam Josefczyk announced it in a live radio interview on Wednesday with Tommy Briggs, of YES FM’s AM Mayhem. The show is broadcast over much of northwest Ohio, including Toledo, Lima, Fremont, and Wauseon.
Unlike conventional news sources, the OCR feed will rely heavily on reader involvement to track political news and events around Ohio’s 88 counties. Readers are asked to submit headlines and hyperlinks for screening to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“This isn’t the closest big-city paper telling you what’s newsworthy, it’s conservatives determining what other conservatives around the state need to know,” Josefczyk said. “The news feed enables concerned Ohioans to keep informed about news and events that might otherwise go unreported.”
Editors also announced plans for expanding into print media. Currently OCR is developing its first issue of a quarterly publication, to contain profiles on GOP, Democrat, and third-party candidates, top-ten lists of influential Ohio conservatives, and prints of its website’s most-read articles. The issue will be a limited print of about 200 copies.
“We are placing this publication in the hands of thought leaders around Ohio. That’s our target. Conservatives are moving forward at ohioconservativereview.com, and we don’t want anyone who should be out in front to get left behind,” said Executive Editor Michael Hamilton.
Wednesday’s interview was one of OCR’s two radio interviews this week. Readers are asked to tune in to Mission America Radio with Linda Harvey on Saturday, July 20, at 2:00 p.m. to hear Hamilton explain more about the OCR mission and story. They can listen at AM 880 WRFD or stream the interview at http://wrfd.com.
Until then, conservatives and other concerned Ohioans can stay engaged by signing up by email for OCR’s new weekend update when they visit www.ohioconservativereview.com.
They can also take OCR’s weekly poll at its Facebook page, www.facebook.com/ohioconservativereivew. Its first poll has gained 38 votes and 65 comments since Tuesday.
