CBS NEWS AT NAHJ CONVENTION SAN ANTOINIO
Sep 06 2019
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 6
Time: 10:30 AM – 11:30 AM
Panel: Building Sources to Land Scoops
How do veteran journalists break news? Oftentimes, they rely on excellent sources. Learn how veteran journalists find the best sources, develop a mutual trust and then maintain those sources after the story airs. Your competitors may share your source, so how do you get them to come to you first? What should you do if your source hates your story?
Moderator: Ed O’Keefe
Panelist: Maria Elena Salinas, Mariana Atencio, Fin Gomez
Producer: Fin Gomez/Nathalie Nieves
Time: 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM
Panel: Living your best NEWS life: Incorporating your background and knowledge into your reporting
If you liked last year’s panels, Being On Camera Takes More Than A Reporter Voice And Good Suit (tbt: #NAHJ2018) and From Broadcast to Broadband (tbt: #NAHJ2018), you’ll love this session. We’ll start with some self-reflection, what do you do best and what needs work? Then we’ll talk about using your strengths to craft story pitches, shoot those stories and write scripts that are reflective of your best journalism. Our goal is to help you create a real connection with viewers that forces them to come back to your station – Or share your stories.
Moderator: Mireya Villarreal
Panelist: Andy Triay
Producer: Mandy Arcena
Time: 1:30 PM – 2:30 PM
Location: PRESIDIO AB
Panel: Field Producing DJ Style
As most local stations are using MMJs, we want to share valuable training and offer up best practices for field producing as a video journalist. What camera techniques work best when you are in a competitive environment working solo? How can you ensure that you are capturing the major points of a story, while gathering footage and sound? Experienced network news DJs explain how they gather editorial, video and sound, without missing the most critical elements in the field.
