No matter your media type, a successful data story or investigation requires the ability to connect with audiences on several platforms, including broadcast, digital and social media. But with limited time and resources, it can be challenging to develop and execute a plan that cuts across media.

We’ll cover:

  • Identifying which platforms to use to tell your story
  • Techniques for making data and documents work across platforms
  • Developing a project team and getting buy-in from newsroom leaders
  • Common challenges and red-flags — dealing with marketing/promotions departments, ensuring accuracy across platforms and measuring success

This session is good for reporters, editors and producers. We’ll talk about the roles each person plays in this process, and provide tips to take back to your team. Please come with a story you’re investigating to workshop as well as your laptop.

Preregistration is required and seating is limited.
