Kevin Benz Webinar – Timely Tips and Coaching for Real World Journalism, Session 2 of 3
February 25 @ 10:30 am
Session 2: Context in Crisis: Making the right call in crisis and breaking news coverage
NBA members are encouraged to join this three-part series of “Timely Tips and Coaching for Real World Journalism” webinars with highly acclaimed industry trainer Kevin Benz. All three webinars will begin at 10:30am Central time and will be archived for later viewing.
In this second session, we focus specifically on fast, accurate and fair coverage of the most recent events in journalism — the insurrection at the Capitol, COVID-19, racial justice and equality, law enforcement, protest and violence. We discuss what questions to ask in order to ensure thorough, complete, and ethical reporting on these very difficult topics. Including how working while exhausted and working fast can get in the way of thorough reporting.
These webinars are being presented in partnership with the state broadcasters associations of Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming. For more details and webinar access, contact Jim Timm at email@example.com.
