The 2018 midterm elections have the potential to reshape our country's political landscape, and covering them can be a challenge. On Friday afternoon, WHYY's Dave Davies spoke with NPR congressional correspondent Scott Detrow about strategies for insightful election reporting.

Here's an excerpt from that Q & A, which included audience participation.

 

The PRNDI 2018 conference jumped into important issues with a look at creating a safe work environment in newsrooms across the country. With the start of the #Metoo movement and several sexual harassment and bullying revelations in the media recently, panelists discussed how news managers and editors can create an emotionally-safe work environment.

The competition was fierce, but the results are in! Please join PRNDI in congratulating our 2018 early career conference scholarship winners: DaLyah Jones and Araceli Gomez-Aldana.
