New Media Leadership Forum set for October

The Kneeland Project for Responsible Journalism is accepting applications now for the next New Media Leadership Forum.

This session for experienced, dynamic, and innovative television news directors will be held Oct. 12-15 in Austin at the TAB building. 

Applications are due no later than Friday, July 29.

Thanks to the Kneeland Project?s generous funders, this intensive seminar is nearly free for the 18 selected applicants.

The Kneeland Project pays all tuition costs as well as accommodations.

Participants cover only transportation and a few meals.

This year?s forum has a powerful new agenda, engaging high-level content experts, and is focusing on the changing nature of the broadcast television news industry.

The forum will cover such issues as:

  • Tackling mobile and social media to win the local news race
  • How to win 2012 election coverage
  • Leadership and ethics in a 24-7 socially networked world
  • What the broadcasting world will look like in the next three, five, 10 years and beyond
  • How core values and high ethical standards must continue to play a major role in all media
  • Leading Millennials
  • How newsroom systems must evolve to meet the challenges of our business

Most importantly, television news directors leave the program with a solid plan to guide leadership decisions starting the day one returns to their newsroom.

This isn't theoretical information to be put on a shelf and neglected ? news directors walk away with concrete action items to implement immediately that will make a difference at any station.

It's an intensive program unlike any other. It's practical.

It's highly interactive. It produces long-lasting results.

Just ask one of several Texas television news directors who have attended a Kneeland Project forum.

Return to your newsroom refreshed and ready to tackle the overwhelming challenges news directors now face.

Apply now! 

Applications are due Friday, July 29, and only 18 news directors will be selected for this program.
