Investigative Collaborations for Local News Organizations and Magazines, with Patti Sonntag
September 17, 12-1:15 p.m. PT
The “Tainted Water” investigation found that residents in many communities in B.C. may be exposed to elevated levels of lead and other metals in their drinking water.
When investigative collaborations uncover hidden information of interest to regional and local audiences, how can local news organizations and magazines take part?
This wide-ranging interactive discussion will review opportunities and challenges for smaller publishers.
Patti Sonntag is the founder and director of Concordia University’s Institute for Investigative Journalism, bringing together media organizations and universities to collaborate in the public interest.
