Equity and community in local news: Lessons learned in 2020
Aug 12 @ 11:30 am – 12:30 pm

As news organizations and the nation have responded to the coronavirus pandemic and the protests following the murder by police of George Floyd, journalists have increasingly confronted the need for newsroom equity and a truer relationship with the communities they serve.

On August 12, from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. EDT, the National Press Club Journalism Institute and PEN America will co-host a program on “Equity and community in local news: Lessons learned in 2020” to identify and share takeaways from pandemic and protest coverage and to look ahead toward election coverage.

Registration is now open for the program, which will be moderated by Jim Friedlich, executive director and CEO of the Lenfest Institute of Journalism, and will feature Denise Rolark Barnes, publisher of The Washington Informer; Cassie Haynes, co-executive director at Resolve Philadelphia; and Darryl Holliday, co-founder and News Lab director at City Bureau in Chicago.

PEN America’s recent report on the demise of local journalism in the United States pointed to innovation in business models and community engagement as one key to the potential survival of local news, historically one of the building blocks of the American democracy. The speakers will discuss how their organizations innovate continuously and how they have adapted during this critical time with a focus on equity and inclusion, as well as elevating previously marginalized voices in storytelling, community, and local engagement. They will also address opportunities and challenges that a representative journalism and democracy face in the upcoming election.

Best Practices for Public Notice (2020)
Aug 14 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Best Practices for Public Notice (2020)

In This Webinar…

Public notices have an historically important role of informing the public. They’ve also become the most important single source of classified revenue for many newspapers. But there’s no category of revenue that faces greater threats as newspapers fight literally dozens of legislative measures across the country every year to take notices out of print.
There are specific, helpful things you can do to protect and even grow this revenue. It starts with treating your notice advertisers like the important customers they are. You can arm yourself with the “talking points” you need to have at your disposal when the topic comes up with advertisers, legislators and the general public.

Our presenters will show you specifically how to do that and more. They’re two leading experts who have successfully fought for years to help newspapers keep notices in print where they belong: Richard Karpel of the Public Notice Resource Center and Dennis Hetzel, a former editor, publisher and executive director of the Ohio News Media Association.

About The Presenters
Dennis Hetzel has been an award-winning reporter, editor and publisher at newspapers in multiple states for Lee Enterprises, Gannett and other media companies. He also taught journalism at Penn State and Temple University and retired in 2019 as executive director of the Ohio News Media Association where he gained a national reputation for his work on open government issues.
Richard Karpel is the owner of Karpel Public Affairs, an association management company based in Carson City, Nevada, that represents nonprofit organizations in the newspaper industry. He is also executive director of the Public Notice Resource Center and the Nevada Press Association, and was formerly executive director of the American Society of News Editors and the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies.
