September 10, 2015 by Wendy Cohen


Scott Schaefer, founder and editor of South King Media and a network of local news sites in Washington state led by the B-Town Blog, operates a 24/7 online radio station – SoKing Internet Radio – side-by-side with his news operation. 

SoKing Internet Radio plays local music and also now includes a weekly "hyperlocal" news podcast. Thus far he has generated more than 3,000 downloads and is working on the launch of daily podcasts and on-demand programming.

Prior to joining the local news business full-time, Schaefer had a long career in television, including directing roles for "The Arsenio Hall Show" and "America's Funniest People," and is a three-time national Emmy Award winner as a writer for "Bill Nye The Science Guy." He also recently directed "The Maury Island Incident" a short sci-fi film based on declassified FBI documents about a 1947 UFO sighting.

The webinar is the seventh in LION's series this year.
