It seems like they’ll be covering a broad range of topics, from blogging, to Web2.0 companies, to advertising in the new media. Furthermore, it looks like 901am will also aim to be more than just another industry blog — but also an educational hub, offering learning on-line and off with respects to blogging and new media publishing.
More details over here, but the upcoming program on an Introduction to New Media involves the following:
Introduction To New media
A. Introduction to Publishing Tools
4. Expression Engine
B. Introduction to Online Marketing
1. Developing a Fan Club
2. Social Media Networking
3. Intro to Online Networking
4. Introduction to Adwords
C. Introduction to Online Branding

2. Developing a Logo
3. Simple Design Techniques
D. Introduction to Online Monetization

For all of you aspiring professional bloggers and new media types, it seems like you’d better head on over to 901am, or perhaps subscribe to their feed, for further details — and take advantage of some of the lessons these gents have learned the hard way.
On a personal note, when the BlogHerald changed hands, we (and me) were sorry to see them go, but we wish them all the best in this venture. Getting a news blog up and going isn’t an easy affair these days, but with the kind of rising stars they have in their stable, they’ll have as good a chance as any at the moment.
NB: Kudos to Chris Pearson on 901am’s new theme, which, as some have noticed, is pretty darn kick ass.
