RTDNA proposes revised Code of Ethics

September 4, 2014 02:15

For the first time since RTDNA's most recent Code of Ethics was approved in the year 2000, the Association is proposing a revision of the code.

The RTDNA Ethics Committee has prepared a draft of the revised code and will present it at a breakout session Excellence in Journalism 2014. The session will be held on Saturday, September 6 from 2:30-3:30 pm in Ryman Studios M at the Opryland Resort and Convention Center.


RTDNA's Ethics Committee has spent the last year revising the Code of Ethics adopted in 2000. Find out what's new, what's improved and how you can contribute. This will be a conversation, not just a presentation. Join us in producing a resource to help journalists make better decisions for themselves, their organizations and the communities they serve. Trainers: Scott Libin, Hubbard Senior Fellow, University of Minnesota School of Journalism and Mass Communication; Terence Shepherd, news director, WLRN-Miami Herald News; Janice Gin, Executive Producer, KRON-TV, San Francisco

The revision to the RTDNA Code of Ethics has been approved by the Association's Ethics Committee and is presented for public review and comment.
