Threats to journalists take on new significance

RTDNA Executive Director Dan Shelley recently wrote about how threats to journalists are taking on new significance.

He speaks from experience, having himself been threatened, attacked, and stalked.

Shelley spoke at the WBA Summer Conference on a panel on the topic of journalist and station safety, and he’s coming back to Wisconsin in October to sit on another panel on the same topic. He will be joined on Oct. 17 on the panel at the WBA’s Broadcasters Clinic by Madison Police Chief Mike Koval, Quincy Media Regional Vice President Tom Allen, and others yet to be named. WLUK-TV News Director and WBA Board member Juli Buehler will again moderate the discussion.

Journalists will be invited to attend. More details to come.
