Jake Batsell, author of Engaged Journalism: Connecting with Digitally Empowered News Audiences (Columbia University Press), joins the LION Publishers for a webinar on and describes five areas in which any journalist or news organization can self-assess their efforts in journalistic engagement, based on his recent visits to more than two dozen news organizations in the United States and United Kingdom.
Batsell also spoke at the remarkable success of the Texas Tribune, which appears to be leading the way in building revenue through face-to-face events with readers.
Batsell is an assistant professor at Southern Methodist University’s Division of Journalism in Dallas, where he teaches digital journalism, technology reporting and media entrepreneurship. Previously a staff writer for the Seattle Times and Dallas Morning News, he spent the 2013-14 academic year at The Texas Tribune in Austin as part of a Knight Foundation fellowship to research best practices in the business of digital news.
The webinar is the sixth in LION's series this year.
