A global pandemic, one of the most widespread protest movements in U.S. history and a contentious presidential election season put local TV broadcasters at the center of a newsgathering storm in 2020.

To talk about what they learned, and assess their competitiveness in a changing news environment, a group of local TV leaders will gather for a TVNewsCheck Working Lunch Webinar, Managing the Never-Ending News Cycle in a Changing Media Environment.

Set for Thursday, Dec. 3 at 1 p.m. ET, the webinar will address:

  • How local TV executives and managers are contending with the non-stop news cycle in a year when streaming media, apps, smart speakers, podcasting and other distribution platforms are fragmenting traditional TV news audiences;
  • How they are capitalizing on a year when audience interest in news – local and national – is significantly higher than in recent years;
  • How well technology is doing at helping news teams produce more content for more platforms.

Joining the webinar as speakers will be:

Lew Leone, SVP and general manager of Fox Television Stations’ WNYW-WWOR New York; Bob Ellis, VP and general manager of Graham Media Group’s WJXT-WCWJ Jacksonville, Fla.;  James Finch, director of news services, Gray Media Group; Craig Wilson, product evangelist for broadcast and media enterprise at Avid; and Paul Adrian, CEO and co-founder of Latakoo.

Glen Dickson, contributing editor of TVNewsCheck, will moderate the webinar.
