Register now for Oct. 15 TAB’s Southwest Broadcast Newsroom Workshop

Registration for TAB’s Southwest Broadcast Newsroom Workshop is now open!  

TAB’s annual newsroom workshop is the largest and most comprehensive professional seminar for broadcast journalists in Texas or in the region.

The seminar takes place during the day on Saturday, Oct. 15, in Fort Worth at the Norris Conference Center.

The 2016 Lone Star EMMY® awards dinner takes place that night at the Worthington Hotel, just a half block away.  

Sponsors of this year’s workshop include the Lone Star Chapter, National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and the Texas Associated Press Broadcasters. 

Go to to register and see the complete schedule of sessions. 

Great care is taken to choose topics and presenters to address issues facing all broadcast newsrooms and to help develop new skills and sharpen old ones.

Nationally-known presenters Al Tompkins of the Poynter Institute and Deborah Potter of NewsLab, as well as outstanding professionals from Texas radio and TV newsrooms and Texas media law experts will be presenting more than a dozen sessions at the workshop.  

Topics include:

  • critical thinking skills
  • use of social media in journalism
  • pulling together the right story elements for the air or the station website
  • two different sessions on broadcast newswriting
  • compelling storytelling
  • effective interviewing techniques
  • tips for telling non-visual stories
  • enterprise reporting: finding the stories and information others miss
  • Texas’ newsgathering-related laws
  • ethical decision making
  • investigative journalism
  • developing and maintaining sources
  • verifying the facts in political advertising or campaign claims
  • and much more!

While the workshop is geared to the working professional, two of the workshop sessions will specifically assist students with their industry job searching.

TAB member station employee registration is just $70 and student interns at your station can attend the workshop for just $30

Registration includes lunch.
