Event description

Description

Remaining vital to consumers with seemingly endless news sources. Being present on whatever device they are using to access news. Reflecting the community in which we live in the range of voices we put in our stories. These are some of the highest priorities of the KUOW newsroom today.

In this talk, KUOW's News Director-Jill Jackson-will focus on how our newsroom chooses what news is news, how we are adapting to the new media landscape and how we seek to earn/preserve trust with a skeptical public.

ABOUT THURSDAYS WITH KUOW

An NPR/PBS Newshour/Marist poll found that 68 percent of Americans do not have much confidence or any at all in the press. Additionally, according to a Pew Research Center poll, 83 percent of people in the Seattle area say they have never spoken with a local journalist.

In an effort to counteract the erosion of trust in media, deepen the public’s understanding of journalism and ensure our community's voices are reflected in our reporting, KUOW invites you to a series of free public presentations and conversations with KUOW reporters. At each meeting, the journalist will talk about their work, answer your questions about the journalistic process and hear from you on what topics and stories are important to you and your community.

ABOUT JILL JACKSON

Jill Jackson is an Emmy award-winning journalist who runs KUOW’s news coverage. Jackson started her news career as an intern at KUOW in 2003 before heading to Washington, D.C., to report on politics and the U.S. Congress for Capitol News Connection with Public Radio International. She spent a year working at NPR producing daily news pieces for All Things Considered. Jackson then joined CBS News as a congressional producer covering the great recession of 2008, the long road to passage of the Affordable Care Act and the rise of the Tea Party in 2010. After nearly a decade on Capitol Hill, Jackson ran CBS This Morning’s Washington newsroom, leading a team of producers, editors and correspondents to make the relaunched morning program hosted by Charlie Rose, Norah O’Donnell and Gayle King as innovative and newsy as possible. In 2014, Jackson joined the team at Face the Nation with Bob Schieffer, and later John Dickerson, producing interviews with numerous lawmakers, President Barack Obama and 2016 presidential candidate Donald Trump.
