Standing Out On Social In This Historic Year At NewsTECHForum
Social media-savvy journalists from newsrooms across the U.S. will share some of the exceptionally engaging work they’ve produced around this year’s life-changing stories in a panel at TVNewsCheck’s NewsTECHForum, presented virtually in December.
The panel features Marie Coronel, reporter at E.W. Scripps’ KGTV; Vic Miccolucci, reporter at Graham Media’s WJXT in Jacksonville, Fl.; Alex Miller, politics reporter at Newsy; Mykal Vincent; digital content producer at Gray Television’s WAFB in Baton Rouge, La.; and Mike Woods, meteorologist at Fox O&O WNYW New York. TVNewsCheck Editor Michael Depp will moderate the discussion, which will take place on Dec. 18 at 1 p.m. ET.
“Social media remains an indispensable platform on which TV news must extend its reporting and engagement, and 2020 amplified that importance even more,” Depp said. “Marie, Vic, Alex, Mykal and Mike are ringers on social in their respective newsrooms, and they’ll each share examples of how they used social to powerfully extend what their stations are able to do on their linear broadcasts and connect more deeply with their audiences.”
NewsTECHForum will also feature sessions on Novel Approaches to News Storytelling Under Stress; Pivoting the Newsroom to Crisis; How Will Digital and Streaming Storytelling Evolve in 2021?; Advances in IP and Cloud Workflows; Remote Production: From Exception to Option; and News 2022: The Reshaping of Programming, Technology and Audience.
Attendees will participate in the live, daily, two-and-a-half-hour streamed sessions on Zoom Webinar, where they can pose questions to speakers, participate in live audience polling and wrap up the day with half-hour, open-mic Roundtables on key issues.
Before, during and after the conference, attendees may also network, submit suggested questions for speakers, chat about issues, browse virtual exhibits and set appointments with sponsors by downloading the TVNewsCheck Events app from the Apple or Android stores. App users who have registered for NewsTECHForum also have the option of watching the programming’s live stream on the app.
