Hello! We're pleased to share with you the last set of webinars in our three-part series on building digital news capacity. The series are based on our 11-week Knight training for stations.
The first series laid the foundation for building digital capacity in your newsroom and for crafting stories that will resonate with and engage your audience. The second installment built on that foundation by exploring workflow, photography and aggregation. And now, the last in our three-part series addresses how to engage and connect with your audience.
Hello and Happy New Year! We are looking forward to the busy year ahead of us. This month, we are preparing for another round of webinars and our last Knight funded conference. As always, we also are looking forward to highlighting your station success stories and providing an inside look at the digital lives of our public media colleagues. Do you have a New Year’s resolution for your station? Tweet @NPRDSwith your plan, or email more than 140-characters to firstname.lastname@example.org
