The Press Club of Long Island hosts the 2022 SPJ Region 1 Virtual Conference on Saturday, March 19. Register online for FREE to get access to the Zoom link.
Join us for panels on investigative journalism and covering climate.
The virtual conference is sponsored by Newsday and News 12.
In an era of newsroom cutbacks, one area media companies have been committed to is investigative reporting. Top investigative journalists from NBC, BuzzFeed News, News12 New Jersey and Newsday will discuss how they got into investigative reporting, how it differs from daily coverage, investigations that have made a difference and what it takes to do it well. The panel will highlight career-focused, practical tips for journalists hoping to break into it.
Investigative Journalism Panel Speakers:
Scientists tell us the climate crisis is no longer a theoretical construct that could play out in the distant future. It is here — today. We can see it, feel it, in the wild weather that we are experiencing around the globe — unusually destructive hurricanes, floods and tornadoes that lash communities without mercy, soaring temperatures that turn already parched forests into tinderboxes that burn for weeks. This panel will look in-depth at how to translate the arcane science behind global warming into everyday language that is understandable to an often confused and skeptical public.
