CBS News Foreign Reporting Workshop at #NAHJ18
CBS NEWS SESSION: Reporting from abroad
CBS News will hold a free workshop for 15 NAHJ journalists, followed by Q&A. The session will be led by some of the network’s most experienced and intrepid talent and producers. It will aim to provide a comprehensive overview of foreign reporting – both in the field and behind the scenes – in addition to addressing broadcast-specific points.
WHEN: Friday, July 20th , at 1130aET
What you’ll expect to take away:
1). How to navigate the specific requirements of a host country
2). How to overcome logistical challenges, both in preparatory stages and while in the field
3). How to gather reliable sources in foreign terrain and proceed to keep up with a fast-paced, developing story
4). How to conceptualize a story initially, pitch it to senior producers, and see it through to broadcast
5). How to effectively field produce with limited resources – in circumstances that are less than ideal
6). How to hold foreign new stories to the same high reporting standards as national stories, even under difficult and dangerous conditions.
7). Lastly, how to cater your reporting and production skills to news organizations around the world
