Once a year, we bring together journalism and media friends to check in on the status of the work we do. This fall, that conversation will have the tinge of a U.S. presidential campaign.
Along with a day of discussions and case studies developed day of, Technically Media’s 11th annual Klein News Innovation Camp will feature a lunchtime keynote fireside chat with Michael Smerconish, the locally based CNN TV host, radio personality and longtime political (and sports) commentator.
Join us at Temple University’s Annenberg Hall on Saturday, Nov. 16.
Renamed from Barcamp News Innovation in 2017 to Klein News Innovation Camp, this unconference is built by journalists for journalists. The day features conference sessions from newsroom leaders, from big brands to local ones to independent freelancers, who follow and spot trends in evolving news organizations. Like other unconferences, most of the programming is made onsite by the attendees to create an approachable environment.
In recent years, we’ve maintained a prestigious lunchtime keynote and a few preplanned sessions to guide the day’s program. This edition’s day falls intentionally just about a year before the 2020 election. The programming will range, but be sure this will be a topic on many minds.
As always, thanks to our organizing partner the Klein College of Media and Communication, including Dean David Boardman. Familiar attendees come from these and other brands:
- New York Times
- Vox Media
- Wall Street Journal
- Washington Post
- USA Today
- National Geographic
- Philadelphia Inquirer
- NBC Philadelphia / NBC10 and Telemundo62 at NBCUniversal Media
- Resolve Philly
- Independence Public Media Foundation
- American Journalism Project
- Committee of 70
Come meet, speak and mingle with more than 250 media professionals and enthusiasts as we learn how communities are informed at an unconference that those attendees and you will program on the spot. The day includes a light breakfast, lunch and an afterparty.
Look forward to it.
