NewsTrain hits Hawai‘i

by Berna Bass ‘06

How news is covered can change over a period of time, said the presenters of the special NewsTrain event held recently at the University of Hawai‘i-Manoa campus and sponsored by the Associated Press managing editors. New approaches to managing the news are evolving as journalists receive slightly different skills training.

Mid-level editors and news managers from around Hawai‘i were especially welcomed at the $35 two-day workshop geared to help journalists at all levels improve their skills and become more efficient in the newsroom. Attendees were from many different Hawai‘i publications and included students aspiring to someday become editors.

Several training sessions included learning how to coach writers, organize stories, give efficient feedback, and improve time management for handling writers as well as deadlines. Other training sessions included how to manage journalism through the changing times, how to manage story ideas, examine news stories for bias, and learn more about online journalism.

Workshop leaders included Michael Roberts, a deputy managing editor of The Arizona Republic; Edward Miller, a managing director of the Newsroom Leadership Group; Nora Paul, a director of the Institute for New Media Studies at the University of Minnesota; and Walter Dean, a broadcast training coordinator from the Committee of Concerned Journalists.

This NewsTrain Program was set up to visit 40 different cities nationally in three years. It will end in December 2006.
