The Media Panel: Rochester’s Newest Faces and Newest Resources has been postponed.

3/13/20 Update: With a continued focus on managing the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made the decision to postpone the March 18th Media Panel: Rochester’s Newest Faces and Newest Resources.

We do this out of respect for our media members who are working hard to keep us all updated as the situation unfolds, and for our community who has already begun to feel the impact of this virus. We look forward to rescheduling soon.


Come meet the freshest faces in media! This panel event will introduce several of the area’s newest TV and online journalists to talk about the roles they play in presenting community news, what they look for from PR professionals, and as fairly new-to-Rochester residents - how the regional communication professionals can support them in learning about this region. 

Guest panelists are:

 

Light refreshments will be available: Coffee, cold drinks, fruits and sandwich tray.

11:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.: Registration/Refreshments and Networking

12:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m.: Panel discussion and sample pitches

Have a Pitch?

We’ll offer an opportunity for 1-3 event participants to pitch a current story to our guest panelists to have them assess and share how they’d address the request – What more information is needed? What is the ‘news’ factor? How could/should the communication/PR pro focus on visuals for a TV audience? The opportunity is to understand each approach to a possible news story and to learn how to frame pitches that may be followed up by reporters.
