Proudly Serving Maryland, Delaware and D.C. Newspapers Since 1908

Collaborating and Competing: Newspaper Success Models — OMC Webinar — May 23

You’d like to do that in-depth story but simply researching the background takes time, not to mention the interviewing and writing involved as well. Between the daily grind of a newsroom, how do you do it?

This session will show how you CAN accomplish special projects without sacrificing quality of work. The idea of collaborating with other newsrooms may have sent up red flags in the past but it doesn’t have to mean the loss of competitive edge for your organization. Several media companies are experiencing growing success with this new model of business.

This session will illustrate ways newspapers can collaborate while still maintaining originality. Examples will come from newspapers that have found success in this model and local and national news organizations, including the Investigative News Network.

When: Deadline to register for the $35 fee is Monday, May 20th. A $10 late registration fee begins on Tuesday, May 21st.
