New Toolkit on Reporting on Race Now Available

Earlier this month, the National Association of Broadcasters released a Reporting on Race toolkit. The free toolkit is now publicly available.

“Every day, newsrooms across the country face challenging questions regarding the coverage of communities of color,” said NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith at the April 12 event. “These stories can be among the most complicated for stations to cover since journalists understand that what they report can influence as well as reflect situations and circumstances in a community. NAB is proud to work alongside the NAB Education Foundation and our partner organizations to assist newsrooms in reporting on race.”

The digital toolkit, made with help from journalists, news directors, journalism school faculty and industry leaders, is geared toward a wide range of journalists, including management, producers, reporters, photographers, and others who handle publishing content.

NAB says the toolkit is the first phase of the Awareness in Reporting initiative. Phase two will be a toolkit on covering religion. Access the toolkit now.
