OK, forgive the cheesy 80’s TV show reference, but I couldn’t resist using it to announce that not one, but two of the online events I produced while at PC Magazine have won FAME awards from Folio Magazine. As the announcement states, “10 gold winners were chosen from more than 150 entries from consumer, b-to-b, association, and city and regional magazines that have created innovative, revenue-generating and brand-building events” in 2007. PCMagCast walked away with one gold award, for best online event (for the August 2006 Virtual Tradeshow on Security & Mobility we produced) and one bronze, in the same category, for the “How to Select and Set up an HDTV” event from last November. These awards should be a great kickoff for PCMagCast’s second year. And they’re a testament to the hard work and talent of the PCMagCast team I (sadly) left behind last week.
UPDATE: Here’s a quote from Jason Young, president of the consumer and small business division of Ziff Davis: “PCMagCasts have quickly become one of Ziff Davis’s most successful initiatives.” PC Magazine’s PCMagCasts Win Two Folio: FAME Awards for Best Online Events
