Seven Newsroom Webinars Set for October-December

TAB is presenting a multipart newsroom webinar series featuring topics addressing journalist skills, newsroom management and journalists’ well-being.

The series features two nationally known newsroom trainers, Al Tompkins of the Poynter Institute and Kevin Benz of

Each session starts at 11 AM CT and lasts an hour.

TAB has budgeted time for attendee questions during and at the end of each session.

Benz, a veteran of several Texas newsrooms and a former RTDNA chairman, will present three sessions in the series focusing on ethical newsgathering and decision making; how to cover some of the most challenging issues of the day; and in a special session for newsroom managers, doing more newsgathering with less staff and resources.

Tompkins, a favorite trainer amongst newsrooms everywhere, will present four sessions. Tompkins will help newsrooms enhance journalism skills such as effective interviewing and sharpening critical thinking skills, as well as provide help to newsroom managers struggling to keep valuable members of their news team.

In our special Dec. 6 session, Al will be joined by his wife Sidney, a licensed psychotherapist, to talk about self-care for journalists. Learn how to cope with journalist stress and trauma.
