SABEW to hold call on re-inventing business coverage

December 4, 2008

The Society of American Business Editors and Writers will hold a teleconference next Wednesday on re-inventing business coverage during a time of newsroom cutbacks.

The call will attempt to provide help on ensuring that business journalism gets the resources it needs in an era of shrinking newsholes and newsroom budgets, and it will provide examples of what’s working, and what isn’t, at other business news desks.

The panelists on the call are Seattle Times business editor Becky Bisbee, Miami Herald business editor Lisa Gibbs and Sacramento Bee business editor Wayne Davis. The call will be moderated by John Corrigan, deputy business editor of the Los Angeles Times.

The discussion will likely be of most interest to editors, but reporters are welcome to participate too.

Those wishing to join the call should dial 1-218-936-799. You will be prompted for an access code, which is 316748.

To send questions in advance, e-mail Corrigan at john.corrigan@latimes.com.
