THE CONFERENCE

1. The Entrepreneurial Journalist: In today’s uncertain journalism ecosystem, journalists have to rely on their wit, talent and skill more than ever in order to make a living. Two journalists who have made the leap from the once-secure bastion of mainstream journalism to other ventures explain how they do it.

Speakers:
AmyJo Sanders, an award-winning investigative journalist who has channeled her reporting skills as well as her business acumen into work as a digital news strategist for a privately held newspaper company.

Jennifer Peebles, former Tennessean reporter and now producer of TexasWatchdog.com.

2. Branding — Why Journalists Should Care: A new mantra in media circles calls for individual journalists to establish a brand. Why?

Speakers:
Joey Srawn, blogger, multimedia consultant and Lipscomb grad
Another presenter to be determined.

Creating Multimedia Documentaries: The nuts and bolts of successfully producing a multimedia documentary.

Speaker:
Jack Zibluk, assistant professor of photojournalism at Arkansas State University-Jonesboro.

The Multimedia Journalist: Tying together the strands of enterprise, branding and technology.
Speaker:
TBD

The Necessity of Ethics: The first completely revised SPJ Journalism Ethics book in a decade will be published in February. This session uses case studies from the book to explore why journalists need to seriously consider ethical behavior more than ever.

Speaker:
Likely to be Kevin Z. Smith, immediate past president of SPJ and current chair of SPJ’s Ethics Committee, or Hagit Limor, current national president SPJ.

More details coming soon.
