Melba Newsome

Charlotte-based independent journalist and editor Melba Newsome explored how newsrooms and journalists approach diversity in sourcing as a Reynolds Journalism Institute Fellow during the 2020-21 academic year, and worked with three newsrooms to pilot ways to track and expand news sources. Newsome will draw on her research and findings during a one-hour Zoom training workshop, focusing on why source diversity is essential to good reporting and how we can make our reporting more inclusive. She’ll also lead participants through an evaluation of published journalism for diversity and inclusive reporting. Register.

Presented as part of the Workshop’s NC Media Equity Project
