Over at Arise On Screen, we are in full Oscar mode. We’ll be spending the week planning our big March 1 Oscar edition show. Last weekend I reunited with teen film critic and blogger, Jackson Murphy. I first met him and his dad Dan, when I was at CBS.
Murphy is the creator of the website: Lights-Camera-Jackson.com, which has been named one of the best entertainment sites for families by Family Circle Magazine. Jackson, an Emmy award winning film critic who happens to still be in high school is a sophomore who definitely knows his movies. Jackson now 15, has been reviewing movies since the age of seven and is the newest guest contributor for Ready4Air (Film). The new movie section debuts this week with Jackson’s post 10 Movies to See Before Oscar Night. If you are into movies this is a MUST SEE list for you.
This week we will also tackle what exactly brands need to know in order for bloggers to successfully work with them during social media outreach campaigns. There are a few things bloggers want brands to know before they sign up. Some bloggers complain that brands do not take a strong and clear lead in their outreach campaigns. Whether it is the PR agency, the brand, or the campaign lead blogger- information is not coming through the communication channels clearly. Directions are being lost in translation and deadlines are constantly changing.
In Ready4Air (Brands & Bloggers), Brands, Please Let Us Know What You Need In Campaigns, we talk to the brands about getting their outreach goals together so that bloggers can deliver the goods with success.
And if you are around later today, check out the latest episode of the radio show “Southern Passion Lounge with Chef Amadeus.” with Chef Amadeus.

All this and more this week on Ready4Air.
