Nonprofit news initiatives play a key role in shedding light on pressing civic issues. This panel session on media innovation will take a closer look at successful public interest media projects and how they offer lessons that can be applied in nonprofit settings. Speakers from the Texas Tribune (the authoritative source for Texas state politics news), Austin public radio stations KUT and KUTX (the home of the Austin music scene), and Kaiser Health News are helping to remake the media landscape, with new ways of delivering news.

Learn about the latest online, print and broadcast techniques for reporting on health and community topics, engaging audiences through interactive storytelling, developing influential reporting collaborations, and organizing compelling community events. 

This session is for anyone wondering: How can nonprofits use innovative media tools in their own work in order to better connect with their audiences? And also: How can nonprofits best work with media outlets to advance their goals? Attendees will hear about the successes, challenges, and lessons learned, and come away with practical tips to apply to their own work.
