That terrific story package your team just put heart and soul into -- did it move your readers and viewers to tears or to action? If your answer is “Who knows?,” then this session is for you. Data experts will focus on current best practices around both qualitative and quantitative newsroom analytics, including where measures of traffic and measures of impact overlap and conflict. Case studies and resources will help you get started in your newsroom.
