On September 21, we will move over to the Radisson Hotel to hear from Robert Chappell, founder of Madison365 to talk about “New Journalism, Social Media and People of Color.”
Why it's important to reach more people of color
Three assumptions you have about people of color that are wrong
The importance of authenticity
How journalism has changed in the social media era
The kinds of content that people of color respond to
Robert Chappell has worked in media for more than 25 years, beginning as a village government correspondent for his hometown paper, The Mount Horeb Mail, at the age of 15. He was editor of the Fennimore Times, associate editor of Madison Magazine, communications director for Lt. Governor Barbara Lawton and director of strategic communications for Overture Center for the Arts before co-founding Madison365 just over a year ago. As Associate Publisher of Madison365 and Chief Operating Officer of 365 Media Foundation, he oversees content, social media and outreach while assisting with business operations and fundraising. He also oversees Madison365 Academy, the magazine's training program for young people of color aspiring to become journalists. He is also the father of four children of three different ethnicities.
