Reporters and editors who are on the front lines of covering the intersection of business and politics share their insights regarding the upcoming election, the economic stories it will offer up, and what business journalists should be watching for during the next training call from the Society of American Business Editors and Writers.

It’s called “Marrying Politics and the Economy: Business Coverage in an Election Year,” and it will be held 2 to 3 p.m. Eastern time, Monday, June 18.

Sign up for the call here. On the day of the call, dial 218-339-2626 and, when prompted, enter the access code 4058935 and you’ll be put in to the call. Callers may only listen in to the panelists’ discussion, but may submit questions to sabew@sabew.org that will be sent to the moderator for possible inclusion in the hour-long discussion.

The moderator of the call is Fred Monyak, the Washington-based economy editor for The Associated Press. He formerly served as a business assignment editor for USA Today, a political news editor for The Baltimore Sun in Washington and a reporter and editor for The Virginian-Pilot in Norfolk, Va.

Also on the call will be Michael Fletcher, national economics correspondent, The Washington Post; John Maggs, senior editor for economics, Kiplinger Washington Editors; and Paul Wiseman, an economics writer for the AP.
