Covering Appalachia: Meeting tonight!

Join us this week explore the effects of current events, politics and media access on coverage in the Appalachian mountain region. OU SPJ’s Ian Bowman-Henderson, Graylyn Roose and a WOUB public advocate will be facilitating the conversation today at 5:00 p.m. in Scripps 111!

As journalists in this region it is important to be aware of how our coverage effects these populations and in what ways it has in the past. Come to SPJ to explore and add to the discussion of the role of public media in protecting marginalized populations as well as finding and covering the hidden stories in this region so close to home.
