How to Thrive in a Virtual Newsroom

View the recording.

The shift to virtual work has upended many aspects of the newsroom, from how collaborative investigative pieces are pulled together to the way new hires and interns are brought onboard. In SABEW’s next training session, we’ll look at how leaders from various news organizations are navigating these changes. We’ll talk about how to keep standards high and consistent in a virtual environment, share strategies for working collaboratively on long-term projects, and explore how to maintain a corporate culture when everyone is working remotely. We’ll also talk about what skills college students and others interested in landing first jobs in virtual newsrooms should be developing.
