All Y’all: The Brief History of a Hyperlocal Media Outlet
Chris Jay is public relations and social media manager for The Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau, the official destination marketing organization of Caddo and Bossier parishes. He is also a co-founder of All Y’all, an independent media outlet that he manages with his wife, Sara Hebert.
All Y’all stages quarterly live storytelling events in Shreveport and Bossier City. At these events, true stories on a set theme are recorded and released as podcast episodes to an international audience of live storytelling fans. Chris will share the story of how All Y’all grew from a hobby to a business, relating unexpected lessons learned along the way and brainstorming about what the future may look like as hyperlocal, independent media voices continue emerge in Shreveport-Bossier. This will have relevance to anyone involved in media buying, marketing or public relations.
