Texans selected for Kneeland Project

Two Texas news directors have been selected to participate in the Kneeland Project for Responsible Journalism’s New Media Leadership Forum.

The national news director fellowship program will take place April 11-14 in Austin at the TAB building.

The Kneeland Project is named for Carole Kneeland, TAB’s 1997 Broadcaster of the Year, who died in 1998 after a battle with cancer.

Kneeland was the innovative and highly respected long time news director of Austin’s KVUE-TV.

Only 18 fellows from a national pool of applicants are selected to participate in the conference focusing on the changing nature of the broadcast television news industry.

The Texas news directors selected are:

  • Carlos Tamez, KUVN-TV Dallas-Fort Worth
  • Mark Farrell, KTEN-TV Sherman-Denison

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, ten 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
