In this webinar:
Traditionally, news organizations competed to get the scoop. But collaborations among news organizations have become far more common in recent years. As budgets continue to tighten, newsrooms are looking for ways to do more than just react to news as it happens. This session will examine the benefits and even a few pitfalls of news collaborations. Plus, you’ll see examples of success stories to spur you to look for different ways to collaborate with other newsrooms and organizations to tell the most important stories to your readers.
