BROADCAST SHOW & TELL

Sponsored by Napoli Management Group

Show & Tell sessions allow you to share your investigations with colleagues from around the country. Veteran broadcasters will moderate each session. Each slot runs for 15 minutes.

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.
