Recorded on November 19, 2015
Presented in partnership with GateHouse Media
Readers across the country list in-depth news as one of the most important aspects of their local news sources. How can newsrooms of all sizes prioritize in-depth, enterprising pieces – and what does it mean for a story to be in-depth, anyway?
In this webinar, Tim Schmitt will cover everything from how to find time for in-depth news, to topical ideas that will resonate with readers.
Who should attend: Reporters interested in taking on more in-depth coverage projects in the newsroom.

Tim Schmitt has spent decades in various newsrooms — some print, and some broadcast. He was a sports reporter, news reporter, and then managing editor of his hometown paper, the Tonawanda (N.Y.) News, where he led an award-winning editorial page. He’s worked as an editor, staffer or longtime contributor with the Arizona Daily Sun, the Mesa Tribune, the Arizona Republic, the Buffalo Current, and the Niagara Falls Gazette, where he was executive sports editor over four dailies — spearheading coverage of the Buffalo Bills and Sabres. He moved to Austin to join GateHouse in early 2015.
