Event Details

Reporting on science requires deep expertise that can be especially hard to come by as journalism outlets find their staff and resources diminished. That’s why funders are increasingly looking to new solutions to support high-quality science.

This webinar marks the first in a series exploring innovative ways to fund reporting on science, health and the environment. This time, we’ll take a broad look at the field and hear about new partnerships and scalable models.

  • Sevda Eris and Jennifer Brady of KQED will talk about a new collaborative research project called Cracking the Code: Understanding Millennial Engagement in Science Media, between KQED and Texas Tech University. This project explores both science communication and the role that interest, motivations, behaviors, identity, and values play in information science learning to evaluate and develop science media content so that media producers and science journalists can advance best practices for engaging diverse, millennial audiences.
  • David Rousseau, MIF’s board chair who oversees Kaiser Health News as vice president of Media and Technology at the Kaiser Family Foundation, and Courtney Stewart of the Missouri Foundation for Health will talk about their partnership to establish a Kaiser Health News Midwest bureau in St. Louis.
  • Tom Laskaway of the Food and Environmental Reporting Network (FERN) will talk about how topic-specific reporting rooted in expertise fits into the growing ecosystem of nonprofit news.

As always, we’d like to hear from you and help you connect with one another. Come ready to share your own examples, questions and ideas.

Look for additional webinars in the coming months that will dive more deeply into specifics on health journalism, environmental journalism and science journalism.
