Registration for this July’s RTDNA / Loyola University Chicago  is open now!

Why you need to be there:

  • Anchors and producers are key leaders in every radio and television newsroom but don't always get the training attention they need to build a strong team.
  • Graduates of this training have called it the highlight of the year and a wonderful workshop full of good ideas, strategies and concrete tools to implement right away.

"I learned so much during my time in Chicago. I haven't attended a conference where every session seemed relevant to my job." - 2018 Summit graduate

What you need to know:

  • Tuition is $295 for your newsroom's first attendee (or $249 for members) and just $199 for each additional attendee. We'll focus on teamwork so bringing your team will multiply the impact on your newsroom!
  • The summit will run from 1pm Wednesday, July 10, to 4pm on Friday, July 12 at Loyola's Water Tower campus in Chicago.
  • Faculty include highly experienced broadcast news trainers Jill Geisler and Scott Libin, guest faculty members from across radio and TV, and two special guest keynotes: MPR's Angela Davis and KARE's Boyd Huppert.
  • Training sessions include coaching, storytelling, strategies for difficult conversations, social media skills and breaking news ethics.
  • Our hotel block gives you a great deal on a room within spitting distance of Loyola’s Water Tower campus.

"I left the summit feeling a re-kindled passion for my profession, and have already been implementing a number of the strategies I learned in my newsroom." - 2018 Summit graduate
