  • #plannednews

Some news events leave us plenty of time to prepare, but come with their own challenges in terms of creating unique stories, keeping an audience engaged and updating content on the fly. Sports news leaders will discuss lessons learned from 2012 Olympics coverage in London, and how newsrooms are preparing for the 2016 games in Rio de Janeiro. They’ll also provide insights on how to plan coverage for a major news event, including useful tools for 2016 and beyond.
