There is a historical thought that reporters need to remove themselves from a story and be desensitized to everything. Joe Little disagrees and he will tell you why at the 2018 Great Lakes Media Show.
The Great Lakes Media Show, formerly the Great Lakes Broadcasting Conference & Expo (GLBC) will take place March 6 and 7 at the Lansing Center in downtown Lansing. Register to attend by February 16 to take advantage of discounted rates.
Little is a television news reporter with KGTV 10News, the ABC affiliate in San Diego, Calif. He’s a proud Multimedia Journalist and often travels the country with his Garden Gnome teaching professionals and students his strategies for better storytelling and on-camera performances. Joe has been awarded 11 Emmys and was a finalist for the NPPA’s Photojournalism Award for Reporting in 2017. His creative stories have taken viewers as far away as Pakistan; to a story completely contained inside a dumpster.
His coverage of the 9/11 attacks is among Joe’s greatest accomplishments. He was four miles away from Shanksville, Penn., when United Flight 93 crashed. Little was one of the first reporters on the scene. His accounts are included in a book called Covering Catastrophe: Broadcast Journalists Report on 9/11. His expertise has also been included in a number of journalism textbooks.
