More Lessons for News Leaders Managing in These Turbulent Times of COVID-19

Newsrooms across the country have been compelled to pivot their operations to cover the coronavirus crisis.

Our colleague Frank Mungeam here at the Knight-Cronkite News Lab recently joined 499 others for what may have been the largest journalism ‘conference’ in the coronavirus era.

Taking Care of Journalists and Journalism,” hosted on March 23 by the Freedom Forum Institute, featured insights and recommendations from fifteen news industry leaders, moderated by Jill Geisler, Freedom Forum Fellow in Women’s Leadership.

Mungeam live-tweeted the virtual conference. We share here his top takeaways for newsroom leaders, and the entire session is also available at the Freedom Forum website for on-demand viewing.
