Awareness in Reporting Panel: Lessons Learned From Reporting on the Frontlines

1 to 1:55 p.m.

The number of police-involved shootings, immigration reform protests and other race-related events has increased in recent years. Local TV and radio stations have unique relationships with their communities, and their reporters are often on the frontlines as first informers, reporting on these stories as they unfold. How do local newsrooms prepare for unrest in the community? What precautions do reporters take when reporting in crisis situations? How do strong community relationships benefit local news stations and reporters? How does social media influence real-time reporting? Join us for a discussion about guidelines and recommendations developed by the broadcast industry to assist news managers, reporters, producers, photojournalists and broadcast corporate offices for covering racially-sensitive situations.

Moderator:
Bruce Johnson, weeknight anchor, WUSA9, Washington, D.C.

Featuring:
Robert Garcia, executive producer, Newscasts, NPR
Janice Gin, assistant news director, KRON, San Francisco, Calif.

Conversation with Community Leaders – Chief David Brown and Rev. Kenny Irby

2 to 2:30 p.m.

In situations of community unrest, local leaders play an important role in conveying information to the public. Local reporters and newsrooms rely on these leaders for up-to-the-minute information as breaking news stories occur. Join us for a conversation with two leaders who have led their communities through crisis situations. Hear how their experiences shape their relationship with local newsrooms and reporters, how social media affects information flow and what media protocols they use as situations are unfolding.
