Reporters are being asked to do more and more — find good stories, report them in multiple platforms, tweet and engage viewers/readers/listeners on social media. Ready Reporter is here to help reporters work quicker, better and smarter online.
Ready Reporter is a tweet feed, 2-3 times a week, backed up by a more detailed blog post. It will include tips, ideas and leads for quicker searching for information, better ways of finding sources and smarter coverage of local news topics with resources online.
Ready Reporter is produced by Barbara Croll Fought, an associate professor at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. Fought, a former TV news special projects producer, has become known for her “Mining the Net” series, teaching modules to help reporters find quality information online.
