Early Registration Ending for TAB’s Nov. 10 Southwest Broadcast Newsroom Workshopposted on 10.29.2018
- Rates Increase Nov. 1
Broadcasters can save $20 by registering today for the Nov. 10 Southwest Broadcast Newsroom Workshop in Houston. The workshop takes place at the downtown Magnolia Hotel, just down the street from that night’s Lone Star EMMY® Awards gala at Houston’s Revention Center.
The Lone Star Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences is a sponsor of the workshop. Early registration is just $25 and includes lunch. On Thursday, the registration fee increases to $45.
TAB’s annual event is the largest state broadcast newsroom seminar in the country, and features nearly 20 information-packed sessions with four nationally-known newsroom trainers as well as some of Texas’ best broadcast journalists and newsroom managers.
Nationally Recognized Presenters
Deborah Potter of Advancing the Story will present sessions on regaining audience trust in local news, covering long-term stories, as well as the ethical decision-making process when determining coverage.
Brendan Keefe, a standout investigative reporter for Atlanta’s WXIA-TV, and winner of 89 regional EMMY® awards as well as multiple national awards such as a Peabody, a duPont, and three Edward R. Murrow awards, will present four sessions at the workshop.
While Keefe’s sessions will mostly focus on making the most of multi-media journalist tools and techniques, he will also present a session on investigative reporting techniques and tips that anyone working in a newsroom can use.
Master storyteller Boyd Huppert of KARE-TV Minneapolis-St. Paul, a winner of an unprecedented 16 National Edward R. Murrow Awards, will present sessions on news writing, using social media to best effect and overcoming story challenges.
SPJ Computer-Assisted Reporting Sessions
This year’s workshop will feature Society of Professional Journalists trainer Sandra Gonzalez, a specialist in the use of Google Tools. These sessions are sponsored by the SPJ through a partnership with the Google News Initiative.
Everyone is familiar with a basic Google search, but Gonzalez will show how to use the many untapped components of Google Tools to assist newsrooms, such as generating story ideas, finding experts and producing material to complement the big breaking news story.
