Join the Conversation About Reporting on Race
When: 12:30pm ET 4/12/17
Where: Livestream or in-person in Washington, D.C.
Local radio and TV broadcasters are part of the communities they serve. During times of unrest, they capture and reflect the voices and feelings of those around them. As first informers, trusted reporters, investigators and public servants, local reporters put themselves on the front lines to report up-to-the-minute information. Join an important conversation as broadcasters unveil a new toolkit to assist newsrooms in reporting on race.
