MODERNIZING MULTIMEDIA JOURNALISM WITH DISASTERS

Gone are the days when veteran reporters show up with experienced photographers to cover your event or story.  Today’s MMJ (multimedia journalist) is often working solo, trying to do three jobs at once and pressured to post it to social media as soon as possible.  What does that mean for you as a PIO?  We’ll step you through how to work with today’s reporter, including the do’s and don’ts of getting interviewed.
