TAB Inclusive Journalism Webinar set for Nov. 12

- Past Newsroom Webinars Archived Online

TAB will present a FREE webinar this Thursday to explore how Texas newsrooms can thoughtfully cover stories when race is a key component.

Practicing Inclusive Journalism and Using Empathy, features former Texas news director and past RTDNA president Kevin Benz of, and Sara Fahim of Run with the Wolves.

This 90-minute webinar takes place on Thursday, Nov. 12, at 11 am CT.

Inclusive journalism is more than diversity on-air – it’s about how journalists work to intentionally cover minority communities fairly.

Benz and Sara Fahim will challenge journalists to recognize their own implicit bias and learn to mitigate it, avoid perpetuating dangerous negative racial stereotypes, and produce journalism that is inclusive and reflective of the whole community they serve.

The session also will explore empathy as a powerful journalistic tool that can help reporters see how others view the world and understand how they feel about it.

Fall Newsroom Webinars Archived Online

TAB has archived our previous newsroom webinars presented this fall for Texas broadcast journalists.
Most are 90 minutes in length and are available for viewing at Vimeo.

Journalist Stress and Trauma in COVID Times

This 90-minute webinar featuring the Poynter Institute’s Al Tompkins and his wife Sidney, a licensed clinical therapist offered practical and common-sense tips for journalists to employ today and in the weeks and months ahead to improve their mental and physical health.

Writing and Speaking for Broadcast

Award-winning KNSD-TV MMJ Joe Little offers his tips on improving broadcast newswriting by making it more relatable and conversational. So many reporters and producers write like police officers speaking or use words lifted from a press release. Little shows how producers and on-air talent can write like and sound like a human!

TAB will have more newsroom webinars in December. Stay tuned for details.
