The New Media Foundation Announces Inaugural Event

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - September 23, 2009) - Co-founders Marta Mobley and Kathryn Moseley are proud to announce the inaugural event, "Afternoon Tea Introducing The New Media Foundation," to be held in Los Angeles on October 17, 2009. The goal of the event is to introduce their foundation's mission to research, develop, produce, and distribute healthier programming for TV, film, and the internet. Additionally, the event will serve as a forum in which women from the fields of health & science, education, entertainment, law, and technology will collaborate on ways in which The New Media Foundation can create positive media for the next generation.

"It wasn't long ago that we were unaware of what constituted 'healthy' and 'unhealthy' foods. As understanding grew, we became much more selective as to what we put in our bodies. We began to grasp a correlation between what we ate and how we felt. Today, a similar correlation has slowly become evident concerning the media around us. Like food, the media we choose to ingest from everyday sources, like the internet, television, movies and video games, has tremendous -- often irreversible -- effects on our well-being. It influences our moods, our character and our general regard for one another. It shapes us from an early age," says Marta M. Mobley, Co-Founder, TNMF.

"Our mission at The New Media Foundation is to create 'whole foods' media as an alternative to so much of the 'fast food' media being offered to our children today," says Kathryn Moseley, Co-Founder, TNMF. "Our hope is that through this inaugural event, we can begin to create awareness and to begin moving forward on meeting our mission."
