Baptist Press launches ‘Instant News’ blog

SAN ANTONIO (BP)–Baptist Press will launch a news blog during the Southern Baptist Convention annual meeting, allowing readers to stay updated on events throughout the two-day event in a timely manner.

Labeled “Instant News,” the blog — at www.bpnews.net/blog — will provide updates within seconds or minutes of key events from the convention floor Tuesday and Wednesday in San Antonio. The blog will allow readers to know the nuts and bolts of news before Baptist Press posts more detailed full-length stories.

“I am excited about giving our readers this resource for reliable and instant access to developments at the annual meeting,” said Will Hall, executive editor of Baptist Press.

The blog will begin its coverage of the annual meeting at 9 a.m. Eastern Tuesday and will report throughout the meeting on such news as:

— Vote totals for president, first vice president, second vice president and other officers.

— Results of votes on motions and resolutions.

— SBC President Frank Page’s address.

— Quotes from press conferences.
