The Freedom Forum Power Shift Project and RTDNA hosted a Local Broadcasters' Hown Hall as part of the Taking Care of Journalists and Journalism series.
Audiences for local TV, radio and online news sources have surged over the last few months. Local journalists are stepping up to serve their communities, covering and uncovering critical stories, developing educational programs for kids home from school, helping sustain local businesses and rallying community support for those in need.
Local broadcasters led the conversation about stories & projects that serve their communities. Be inspired by the power of local news!
Here are resources shared on the May 27, 2020, town hall-style webinar. The webinar featured journalists from Entravision, KBAK, KCBS, KING, KTVI, KWTX, KYW, NET, Nexstar Media Group, WISN, WJHG, WTIP, WUNC, and WWL.
