Alaska station uncovers truth about deceptive fundraising

Local business owners in Juneau, Alaska, were recently asked to donate prizes for a six-night event called "Juneau Fest 2012," which is taking place this week. What the business owners didn't know was that the event was part of a religious revival meeting. In several in-depth reports on the radio and on the web, member station KTOO broke the story, revealing the true intentions of the event and the misleading practices used to promote it.

We concluded our second round of 11-Week Intensive Knight Training earlier this month. Over the 11 weeks KERA, KUT, VPR, WABE, WBHM, WESA, WKAR, WLRN and WUWM developed digital goals and applied lessons on writing for the web, leveraging  social media for stories, making better photos and using metrics to their digital performance.

We are on our winter break from webinars but look forward to seeing you all again in the New Year.  If you missed anything from 2012 or want to re-watch one of your favorites, visit our blog.
