Rochester’s media landscape has shifted dramatically in recent years – and then this year, COVID hit, forcing even more swift change for media and PR pros alike. We invite the local PR community to join us for a virtual conversation with some local reporters, many of whom are new to Rochester, to talk about the media landscape, the challenges media faces, and the ways we can all work together in this COVID era. We’ll also hear from them about diversity and how recent protests and instances of racial injustice may impact their work as journalists. A lot has changed in the last few years, and we’ve got plenty to discuss. Bring your questions and we’ll get to know some of our local reporters, while sharing ways we can all work together more effectively.
