News organizations need more people covering more territory as well as a heightened awareness of how better to avoid mistakes and protect themselves against deep fakes, according to a panel at TVNewsCheck’s NewsTECHForum.

News leaders from Hearst, the Associated Press and E.W. Scripps will share strategies for covering the contentious 2020 election season during the opening panel at TVNewsCheck’s NewsTECHForum next month.
Hearst Television’s SVP of news says local newscasts don’t need a radical reinvention to stay relevant to younger audiences, but they must adhere to trust and transparency in a more relatable voice.
Hearst Television’s VP of news, Barb Maushard, joins the lineup of speakers at the NewsTECHForum Dec. 16-17, a conference sponsored by TVNewsCheck and the Sports Video Group. She will discuss the challenges that TV stations face in covering live breaking news in a crisis.
