Introduction to Community Journalism

January 30 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

WSLR presents the second in a series of public newsroom forums focused on building the local news ecosystem. Panelists and audience members discuss the role community journalism plays in telling under-reported stories, producing local news that better informs the public, and strengthening neighborhoods and civic engagement. Participating panelists include Johannes Werner, new director of WSLR; Eric Garwood, executive director of the Community News Collaborative; Kerry Seridan, reporter and host at WUSF; and, Endera Allen Stevens, a growth manager at Northend Agent‘s newspaper.

Registration is required to attend. Funding for this series of panel discussion is provided in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with WSLR. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
