Is Beat Reporting for You?
Underwritten by TEGNA Foundation

The type of stories recruiters look for are those where reporters break news, uncover corruption, or create change. One of the best places to produce that work is on a beat.

Join NAHJ for a conversation with three journalists who graduated in the past five years, but are already making their mark on their respective beats. Learn how they developed sources, became subject matter specialists and how they got jobs covering business, entertainment and race and culture. 


This session is only available to current NAHJ members. Join/Renew NAHJ here.

DATE/TIME: Wednesday, May 24, 2023 – 1 pm PST/4 pm EST
