The Associated Press Media Editors are pleased to announce that Mandy Jenkins, social news editor of The Huffington Post, will lead a webinar in November on mobile reporting and free desktop publishing tools.
The webinar is part of the NewsTrain webinar series, APME’s successful training program, which has offered training to more than 5,000 journalists over its 10-year history.
Call-in information and a link to the webinar will be sent a few days before the event.
Jenkins' session will delve into how journalists can use their phones to report news and what free web tools are out there for stories you're writing from your desktop.
Jenkins has a wealth of experience in mobile reporting. Prior to her role with The Huffington Post, she was the social media editor for Washington, D.C., local news startup TBD and the Cincinnati Enquirer. Jenkins has also worked in online news at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and as a newsroom producer for WKSU, an NPR affiliate in Northeast Ohio.
The webinar costs $9.99 for APME members and $19.99 for non-APME members.
