Portland's Dill Pickle Club, a civic interest group that pitches itself something like a less-stuffy City Club, is holding a "how news is made" tour and panel discussion this Friday, Oct. 28. I'll be among the speakers.

The tour starts in the early afternoon and the panel discussion kicks off at 4:30 pm in the U.S. Bank of America room at Multnomah County Central Library.

More details here. Here's a little on what to expect from the panel:

Join us and tour KGW NewsChannel 8, The Oregonian offices (where we’ll meet the paper’s managing editors) and a panel discussion with local experts on new media (including Corey Pein, Portland Mercury reporter Sarah Mirk and Urban Honking co-founder Mike Merrill).

And here's a little video the Picklers put together in which I ramble pessimistically while offering a tour of WW's offices:
