PARTICIPANTS ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT ORLANDO NEWSTRAIN
Eighty-four journalists, educators and students attended the Orlando NewsTrain May 15-16, and they left the University of Central Florida enthusiastic about the training they received. Here’s a sample of their tweets:
“#NewsTrain was amazing! I learned so much from other journalists.. Great two-day workshop.” – Ailin Le Bellot, University of Central Florida student
“What a productive use of time. Thanks for a fantastic two days of training and education, #NewsTrain.” – Caitlin Dineen, Orlando Sentinel reporter

Big thanks go to our Orlando trainers: Linda Austin, NewsTrain project director; Michelle Guido, former WESH-TV managing editor; Kathy Kieliszewski, Detroit Free Press visuals director; Ron Nixon, New York Times Washington correspondent; and Karen Workman, New York Times senior staff editor.
We are also hugely indebted to Gil Thelen, executive director of the Florida Society of News Editors, who led the host committee of journalists in putting together the program. Rick Brunson, associate journalism instructor, provided critical on-the-ground support at the workshop site: UCF’s Nicholson School of Communication.
