Thirteen newsrooms have been chosen to receive custom watchdog training in the coming year through IRE’s Total Newsroom Training program.
TNT provides two days of intensive, in-house training for small and medium-sized newsrooms dedicated to watchdog journalism. This is the eighth year IRE has offered the free program, which is supported through a grant.
TNT newsroom training is customized and includes two days of sessions ranging from public records battles to hands-on data analysis.
The newsrooms were chosen from more than 50 applications this year.
"Watchdog reporting is the heart and soul of journalism and IRE is excited to bring back the TNT sessions that focus on those skills to newsrooms across the country," IRE Executive Director Diana R. Fuentes said. "From Seattle to El Paso to Louisville, Kentucky, and nearly a dozen points in between, we are proud of the diversity of journalists that will be receiving this cutting-edge training. We believe the communities they serve will see the benefits for a long time to come."
