Rolling out the big investigation no longer means “made for TV” and, for most of us, it doesn’t mean disappearing for months to work on one story. See how rolling out an investigation in multiple parts can give each piece laser focus and result in long-term traction that can drive results. We’ll also show you how to target social media influencers to build interest before the story breaks, and how to use multiple platforms within and outside your newsroom to increase your audience.
