Recorded on February 25, 2016
Presented in partnership with GateHouse Media.
Do you feel like you’re always writing recaps instead of original news stories? This presentation is designed to help you take your stories to the next level — instead of just telling readers what happened.
Tim Schmitt, with GateHouse Media, will share tips on how to make your stories multifaceted and people-focused, rather than just regurgitating the information you receive.

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.
