This week’s featured course on Newspaper Training: How to Use Social Media to Enhance Your Community Journalism

For newspapers, social media has proven both a blessing and curse. And it is too early to decide which ultimately will be the more prevalent force.

In the attached white paper, dig into the impact and the opportunity of social media and community journalism. Our audio interview is with Jonny Wakefield. Jonny, until very recently, was the editor of the Dawson Creek Mirror in northern BC. He is well known across Canada for being one of the most innovative journalists harnessing the power of social media. In his chat with host Tim Shoults, Jonny walks through how he uses social media tools at the community level and will speak about some his favourite tools.
