Summary: The Chamber Connection is the official podcast of the Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber of Commerce, where we shine a light on local business and celebrate our community. Listen in each month and take a look at the organizations, professionals, leaders and topics to keep you in the know. You’ll hear success stories and tips from amazing local businesses, learn the latest in legislation and policy, dive into important news, meet community leaders, and find out how you can get involved in our region.
Project: Launched in June 2020, The Chamber’s podcast was a project years in the making. Partnering with a local radio station and Chamber partner granted easy access to a studio already equipped to record — as well as production and distribution. I worked closely with the station’s general manager to figure out a process and handled the planning on our end. To start, we talked with staff, volunteers and members to make sure we had a solid framework, could fulfill a need and offer value. This formed the launch plan, consisting of picking a name, writing a description, recording jingles, securing guests, setting a schedule, building all marketing materials, and making the documentation needed to get started. Since the show launched, I led all production, including selecting topics, coordinating guest scheduling, formulating outlines, and posting and promoting each episode.
