Television and radio station tours, discussions with reporters who covered Hurricane Katrina, and the effect emerging technology has on broadcast journalism highlight the 24th annual NorCal RTNDA Conference and Awards Oct. 22 in San Francisco.
Bay Area reporters who covered the aftermath of the hurricane will discuss how they overcame such challenges as no phones or electricity, sleeping in their cars, going without food and water and encountering angry evacuees.
During the "Foot in the Door," panel news directors and a talent coach will talk about what it takes to get that first job or the next job. The "VJ Revolution" panel will discuss the trend toward video journalists working alone with a small digital camera and laptop editing system.
