AP News Train stopping in Salt Lake City
By Donald Meyers
Anybody out their feel they have all the journalism training they could ever need?
This is for the rest of us.
The Associated Press Media Editors’ News Train program is coming to Salt Lake City Nov. 2-3. The program, which will be at the Brigham Young University Salt Lake Center in downtown, offers cutting-edge training for news managers, editors and reporters. Among the sessions that are being offered are planning and coaching across different media platforms, finding watchdog stories, and managing and surviving change.
The nice thing with this program is it features two tracks, so you won’t have to worry about missing programs because of scheduling conflicts.
The program costs $50, and that includes breakfast and lunch. The program is hosted by the Associated Press, The Salt Lake Tribune, Deseret News, The (Ogden) Standard-Examiner, Brigham Young University and the University of Utah. Lodging is available at the Crystal Inn Hotel and Suites.
