How do you get news about your community? Do you turn on the radio, scroll through phone apps or online feeds, tune in to a TV program, or pick up a hard copy of the daily paper?
Breaking the News visits with representatives from KC’s news scene to explore the current state of local reporting, predict what lies ahead for journalism in our region, and discuss what suffers when community coverage is diminished.
KMBZ Radio’s Dana Wright moderates the discussion. Joining her: University of Kansas associate journalism professor Carol Holstead, KCTV5 executive producer Amanda Palumbo, Kansas City Star editorial board member and reporter Toriano Porter, KCUR 89.3 reporter Lisa Rodriguez, and Star reporter Steve Vockrodt.
Presented by the Young Friends of the Kansas City Public Library, Generation Listen KC, KCUR 89.3, and the Kansas City Public Library.
