Town hall set for broadcast journalism



The Freedom Forum Power Shift Project and RTDNA will hold a virtual town hall on May 27 at noon CT sharing the great work local journalists are doing on TV, radio and digital platforms to serve their communities during the coronavirus pandemic.

We are looking for a group of “featured presenters” to lead things off with their stations’ stories.

If you’re interested in participating, please email  to let us know by May 13 with three quick things:

  • Who you are, where you work and how to get in touch with you.
  • The story, series or project your station has produced recently that you’d love to share.
  • A sense of the impact it has had.

Our goal in selecting up to 15 featured presenters is to represent the diversity of powerful local broadcast and digital news – by platform, group, geography, gender, ethnicity – while inviting the entire community of RTDNA members and supporters to chime in, too – or just tune in to pick up great ideas!

General registration will open shortly.
