Whose Local News? Online Avenues to Trust With Diverse Audiences

  • Session audio will be posted

Despite often being the only source of information their audiences trust, community and ethnic publishers and broadcasters are frequently overlooked by the broader media world. Join this session to learn about emerging online civic communicators and the tools and strategies they use to build trust.

This session is designed for:

  • Anyone interested in better understanding America's diverse stratum of ethnic media outlets
  • Newsrooms that are suffering from deficits in engagement and trust
  • Leaders planning for census, election and other stories based in difficult-to-cover communities
