Panel discusses journalist, newsroom safety

A panel at the WBA Summer Conference discussed important topics surrounding the safety of journalists and broadcast facilities.

The panel was moderated by Juli Buehler, News Director, WLUK-TV and member of the WBA Board. The panel included:

Dan Shelley, Executive Director RTDNA
Ben Hart, News Director, WISN-TV
David Oxenford, Partner, Wilkinson, Barker, Knauer
Michael Kass, Brown Deer Police Chief
Mike Kemmeter, News Director, Woodward Radio Group
Katie Crowther, Reporter, WTMJ-TV

The panel took questions and talked about methods broadcasters are using to protect their personnel in the field and in their own buildings.

Because of the importance of the topic, the WBA is attempting to bring this panel discussion back to a future WBA conference.
