Are you really ready to handle a major news story in your town? This webinar will highlight a number of issues when covering a major breaking news story: User-submitted photos and information, multi-media coverage and the effect on web traffic; the effect on staff; the aftermath and continued follow up.

Specific items to be covered include:
  • Steps to develop a newsroom disaster plan including first responders and their roles.
  • A guide to social media -- monitoring and dissecting user contributions.
  • Working with national media when they come to town.
  • Arming reporters, photographers and online producers with the right equipment.
  • Using the appropriate language during a sensitive situation.
