PRSA: Professional Development Session: Behind the Scenes with Local Media – Panel Discussion and Q&A
September 13 @ 7:30 am - 10:00 am
What does the typical day in the life look like for a reporter? How can you get your pitch in the right hands? How does social media work in a newsroom? Is video content really king? We invite you to join us Thursday, Sept. 13 for a professional development session featuring a panel of Richmond media contacts. They’ll talk through the behind-the-scenes of what gets your story on the air, online or in the paper.
The workshop is open to PRSA members and non-members and will be held at the VCU Robertson School, located in the Temple Building at 901 West Main Street, room 1165. A networking session with bagels will kick off the session from 7:30 to 8 a.m., and the workshop will be held 8 to 10 a.m.
