Scrub those media lists and make sure you list Yahoo News, Huffington Post, Vice, and Vox near the top. There’s a gradual changing of the media guard and we need to be ready when it’s pitch time.

Attend this exciting workshop with reporters from organizations whose names are fast becoming media standard bearers, alongside the New York Times and Washington Post.

Learn how to get to know them, how to pitch them, which social media channels matter most to them, and what rules of journalism still apply.

Gordon Witkin, Center for Public Integrity, Executive Editor
Olivier Knox, Yahoo.com, Chief Washington Correspondent
Kate Sheppard, Huffington Post, Senior Reporter/Energy and Environment Editor
