That’s Not What I Said

Nov 3 2016 - 11:30am to 1:00pm

"That's not what I said!"
with Ted Streuli, Editor, The Journal Record, and Nathan Elliott, Director of Content, KWTV — News 9

As communicators, part of our role is to interface with the media. But with that interaction comes the risk of being misquoted or taken out of context. What's the best way to work with a reporter when that happens and how do you prevent it from happening in the first place? The Journal Record's Ted Streuli will take on this topic and more from the print perspective and News 9's Nathan Elliott, from the broadcast perspective. In addition, learn how TV reporters put together stories, how sources are used and quoted and how best to communicate with reporters and station management.
