NABJ convention to offer hands-on digital journalism training

The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) 2009 Annual Convention and Career Fair in Tampa, FL, will deliver hands-on multimedia training for journalists and media professionals Aug. 5-9 at the Tampa Convention Center.

Journalism training organizations, including the Poynter Institute, Google and the Gannett Foundation, will be present, and newsmaker plenaries and a career fair will be available to attendees, said NABJ President Barbara Ciara.

The NABJ convention is the largest gathering of minority journalists in the country. More than 50 workshop sessions, learning labs and short courses will be offered covering everything from how to succeed in communications and broadcast production to the latest in digital journalism.

Among the timely, high-interest plenary discussions this year is "Beat It, Bad or Dangerous? What Michael Jackson's Death Tells Us About Media Competition and the Future of Journalism." This frank discussion among top media and entertainment journalists will include Jon Klein, president of CNN/U.S., and pop culture critic Touré.

At the convention's Salute to Excellence Awards Gala, NABJ Journalist of the Year Michele Norris of National Public Radio and Lifetime Achievement Award Winner Michael Wilbon of ESPN and the “Washington Post” will be honored along with a slate of the nation's top journalists.
