Wisconsin Watch invites newsrooms to ‘office hours’

Wisconsin Watch

The following is from our partners at Wisconsin Watch:

As the COVID-19 pandemic pushes newsrooms to their limits in delivering life-and-death information, Wisconsin Watch wants to remind you that we are here to help. 

Collaboration is baked into our nonprofit model, and sharing resources now seems more important than ever. In that spirit, we are launching our first “office hours” on Wednesday, April 1 at 10 a.m. Central time.

Join Wisconsin Watch Managing Editor Dee J. Hall and Investigations Editor Jim Malewitz as we preview upcoming stories, answer your questions and welcome any story tips and suggestions for how we can better serve you. 

Mark your calendar: We will hold these sessions — for media partners only — the first Wednesday of every month to keep you informed about our work. 

To join, contact Associate Director Lauren Fuhrmann

As you may already know, you are always welcome to republish/broadcast/localize all of our reporting. Just follow the guidelines for approved media partners. A collection of our coronavirus coverage appears here.

If you are not already on our distribution list, you can request access through this form.

And, we are offering a new service to help you keep your audiences informed. You are welcome to publish our COVID-19 Update. It is a statewide roundup, generally published on weekdays, of top news and information about Wisconsin’s response to the coronavirus. If you want to receive these updates in your email inbox, click here

We welcome your suggestions for making these updates as useful as possible for you and your audiences.

Lastly, if you would like to share your reporting and photography — for publication and distribution to other statewide media — during this crisis, or discuss other ideas, email Coburn Dukehart, digital and multimedia director, at cdukehart@wisconsinwatch.org

We are all in this together.
