Show & Tell Rules

This is a laboratory – in research, writing, editing, production, on-air presence, and all things broadcast.

  • Please don’t go over your total time allotted: 15 minutes.
  • Please do not show any tape longer than 8 minutes. The idea is for others to learn from your experience and for you to learn from them.
  • Only one story/piece per person at the conference.
  • This is a place to grow. People want a fair, honest and civil critique.

If you have any concerns about these rules, feel free to contact IRE Board members Matt Goldberg (408-234-0801), Nicole Vap (303-903-1262) or Lee Zurik (504) 723-0057).

Al Tompkins

Sign up for one-on-one broadcast mentoring with Poynter’s Al Tompkins. Please provide a cell phone number where we can reach you, and bring any materials you’d like to review.

HOW TO SIGN UP: Please only sign up for one slot. If your preferred time slot is taken, you can sign up for a waiting list position. Attendees who sign up for waiting list spots will receive a phone call if the slot becomes available. Anyone who signs up for a “Reserve” slot will not receive a phone call and should show up at the designated time. A few slots have been designated as drop-ins and will become available for sign-up on Wednesday, June 13.
