SABEW to hold training call on covering the economy
The Society of American Business Editors and Writers plans to hold a training conference call later this month on covering national and local economic stories.
This session will give journalists a better understanding of the direction of the national economy as well as insight into how they can track and cover their own regional economies. The call will also teach listeners how to tap into Bureau of Economic Analysis data and other economic resources.
On the call will be Adolfo Laurenti, deputy chief economist, Mesirow Financial, and Mike Schneider, correspondent and computer mapping specialist, The Associated Press, as well as a Bureau of Economic Analysis representative. The call is being moderated by Daniel Burns, financial training editor for the Americas, Reuters.
