Orange County, Calif. (June 12, 2024) – The nonprofit multimedia organization OC World announces the launch of OC World Media Club this week. Dedicated to promoting excellence in journalism and media within Orange County, the nonprofit venture will provide professional development, networking, advocacy, and community engagement opportunities to a wide range of media professionals.
